The Newcastle fans are still remaining upbeat following their drop in form because they know they are safe for another season in the Premier League.
Its been a brilliant season for Newcastle in most respects as they achieved their ultimate goal of staying in the division and have even pushed on into the top 10 in recent weeks. This summer will prove an even bigger test mind you, seeing as negotiations are still ongoing with the sale of the club and Rafa Benitez getting a new deal.
Whether all or none of that actually happens, Newcastle need to spend in the transfer window and a player deemed surplus to requirements at Manchester United is Matteo Darmian, a player the Magpies should strongly consider signing given his low valuation of £10.80 million on Transfermarkt.
Newcastle have struggled defensively at times and with the ability to play either side of the defence, Darmian is a player who could be a strong starter for Newcastle and he could cast away the doubts United had on him.
It won’t be an easy task to lure him to St James’ Park, given the big competition surrounding the Italian, nevertheless, if Newcastle want to improve on this campaign, a player of Darmian’s standards is exactly who they need around the club.
Matteo Darmian could never rise to his full potential whilst at Old Trafford and after being told he is free to leave the club this summer, the Magpies can’t find a better opportunity to improve their full-backs with one player.
