I don't think 40m will deter Newcastle


CaptainGo

It shouldn't but I don't see why he would give up a chance at a domestic title to come here. If we survive we will probably go for him again in the summer


Rojiblanc040

He's got an equal chance to win the PL to La Liga. It's Sevilla, Id love for them to beat Real but it won't happen.


eddsters

Lol, what? You never know man we can slip up and Seville are a great team! They also just got Corona and their back 4 are great! Navas has been brilliant for them and they also have Kounde and Acuna plus of course Diego Carlos. Their squad is a unit.


OleoleCholoSimeone

It's Sevilla, not fucking Tottenham lol. They may not have won the league since the 60's but if a club wins 6 Uefa Cups in 15 years then they have a pretty damn strong winning mentality. Mentally weak is the last phrase I would use to describe a club that has achieved all that on a shoestring budget Atlético were considered bottlers before Simeone came back, a good coach can change a team's fortunes. With Lopetegui they have consistently been winning games that they are expected to win, which was their downfall in the past. Plus ever since covid hit a lot of these "curses" have been broken. Sporting winning Primeira Liga, Cruz Azul winning the Mexican Championship, Argentina winning Copa America etc. It seems like the perfect climate for Sevilla to finally do it Edit: Leeds getting promoted too. A lot of these things have been happening since covid!


HeroeDeFuentealbilla

Sevilla are a cup team, not league. They’re the Carlo ancelolli of clubs.


StrugglingEngineerSt

What have tottenham done to you, yall are ruthless let us live man.


Rojiblanc040

Sevilla, more like Spanish Spurs.


Rickcampbell98

Spurs wish they were sevilla, sevilla actually win things.


CaptainGo

Probably true but staying at Sevilla guarantees that he won't play in the second division next season


SnooCupcakes9188

For a chance at a domestic title in the second division next year of course


Physical-South-3564


CaptainGo

Yeah but he could fight for a title and get that same money, if not more if he wins, in like five months from now


OleoleCholoSimeone

I refuse to believe they would accept €40M too, his release is £65M(€70M+). They are in a good financial position too so not like they need the money


nosekexp

Specially considering we're probably selling Kounde this summer.


cathar_here

so, do we think he's worth 40 million?


Kneepi

Our defence is in shambles, Harry Maguire is probably worth 40 million to us, and he looks kind of shit at the moment.


cathar_here

Fair enough lol


Omair88

"kind of"


Voltairinede

I'm sure we can pay £33m.


PurpleSi

I'll start passing the hat around


King_Hobbes

This should genuinely be a no brainer right now Pop in a relegation clause into his contract and let's see if we can save this season


coronado_dutroux

They can't go down if they manage to rebuild their defense


DefinitelyNotBarney

Even more: Newcastle don't care, Newcastle taketh


lollero420

The game is officially gone if a La Liga title candidate moves to a relegation battling Newcastle.


PoachtekMong

I mean it's hardly your regular relegation battling club


Omair88

Money talks


Reflex_0

Its already gone because city is a thing.


TomClancy5871

Don’t forget Chelsea and P$G

Sevilla have a lot more European pedigree over the last 15 years than many so called "established CL-clubs" though. With 6 Uefa Cup titles they have achieved more than everyone bar a handful of clubs really Not to mention that they almost always make it though the group stages, it's a myth that they regularly finish 3rd in their group.

parkersr1

But... but... that guy is a bayern fan


mattisafootballguy

Sevilla is virtually better in every way than Newcastle, if this deal goes through it would show the awful state modern football is in. A literal relegation-threatened team getting one of the best defenders in La Liga because they have tons of cash.


DarrenBridgescunt

When has football ever been different?


holhaspower

10 years ago Julio Cesar left Inter for Queens Park Rangers for more money and got relegated. Paulo Rossi left Juventus for an Italian record 2.4m fee and huge wages then got relegated with Vicenza in 1979. Football has always been like this even 40 years ago. Take off your nostalgia goggles.

Khaglist

You could argue that the project at Newcastle virtually guarantees that they will surpass Sevilla at some point but I would agree that moving now would be a strange move for players of his calibre


mattisafootballguy

State-sponsored clubs being able to buy virtually whoever and whenever they want, after themselves being relatively obscure/unsuccessful then being able to artificially pump themselves full of cash is not normal. PSG and City coming from virtual irrelevance to being the leading forces domestically/competing in CL finals and Newcastle are very likely to follow suite. It's incredibly artificial and farcial. And while it has happened in the past to varying degrees this level of state sponsorship/ownership is not normal.


[deleted]

Your club paid 160 million for coutinho…


khronokhris2222

And have to pay half his wages to get someone to take him on loan 🤣


[deleted]

He’s talking as if Barcelona don’t spend huge money it’s crazy


de_tu_sueno

>level 3TomClancy5871 · 28 min. agoDon’t forget Chelsea and P$GVoteReplyGive AwardShareReportSaveFollow They did it off the back of a 200m+ Neymar transfer and nearly 1billion of revenue. Not nearly the same.

[удалено]


de_tu_sueno

I mean covid happened. They make a lot of money in tickets sales and with commercial deals. Both of which went down during the lockdowns and both depended on having high-wage names to attract viewers. A perfect storm of shit. Without COVID, they'd still be on high revenue and not in huge debt.


mattisafootballguy

It's nowhere near the same and I don't know why you make such a silly comparison. Barcelona is one of the biggest clubs in the world and is obviously able to spend many many millions, yet somehow is poorer than Newcastle now. Utterly ridiculous.


[deleted]

And how have they maintained their status as one of the biggest clubs in the world? By throwing hundreds of millions at players you melon. This is nothing new, money buys success. Your club is literally billions in debt and still throwing 50 million at Man City bench players


Apprehensive_Cat_725

BEWARE of Reddit user Wntrzkj who claims to sell Fifa coins His Reddit username is Wntrzkj. His real name is Kieran Winter, and he lives in Bradford, England. He is a scam artist. He frequently posts on the FifaUTCoins thread. He even has a link to a fake FutRep profile. Once he receives payment, he will NOT deliver what he promises and will block you. Luckily I was able to reach both my credit card company and a PayPal representative and stop the payments. But I am hoping to prevent others from being scammed by him. I would also suggest that anyone who sees a post from him anywhere on Reddit should report him immediately.


mattisafootballguy

This is such a stupid take I have no idea where to start. Pour potentially hundreds of millions of dollars into a club that has been virtually irrelevant for decades and make them a competitive force, with all this money coming directly from a state entity who likely doesn't know a thing about Newcastle and has obvious ulterior motives. Exactly the same thing right? The money is obviously not equally the same, you are sponsored by a bloody country not fan-owned as is Barcelona who's revenues have consistently risen together with its steady success. You are literally going from 0 to 100 here out of thin air. If you think that is normal or the same then you are genuinely deluded.


[deleted]

The club wasn’t virtually irrelevant for decades. We had consistent champions league football in the seasons before Mike Ashley bought us. We even battered your own club. Do we deserve to rot at the bottom half of the premier league due to 15 years of bad ownership? You clearly just have no idea what you’re talking about


Odd_Roll5866

Every way? How many 24 hour greggs are there in seville? Check mate


jds192

Wont happen unless Sevilla value that cash more than the player. If anyone can use that cash to improve team it is Monchi.


PurpleSi

Gosh wait until you see who's moved to Toronto. Or who's been playing in America, China, Russia or the Middle East for the past few decades. Do you think Pele joined the Cosmos for purely footballing reasons? Or was it the millions of dollars? Guess what, footballers want to get paid. It has always been like this, all the way back to the 1900's.


TB97

They are better than Newcastle in every way except money for sure. People are talking about why it makes sense for him, but realistically Newcastle will not get to the level of Sevilla until he reaches his prime. It's a project, sure, and if he feels that a project is exciting I can understand it. But surely right now Sevilla's project is not exciting considering they are actually challenging. If he joins Newcastle I can't imagine there's any reason other than money. Which is fair enough, I might do the same, but it is sad.


[deleted]

You’re thinking way too short term


BullyBlu

Or it would show the shift in the pull from la Liga to PL


Fati25

There's zero "pull" involved in this The only reason Diego Carlos would make the move to Newcastle is because of the money. It's like saying Oscar leaving Chelsea for China "showed the shift in the pull from PL to Chinese Super League"


BullyBlu

Yeh the money is the pull and the pl is the defacto superleague now. This is 2022, the days of players playing for their boyhood clubs is almost over, untill close to retirement anyway.


pixelkipper

they’re in a title race. embarrassing for them if they sell now


leighshakespeare

Yeah just ignore the Saudi takeover that happened a few months ago, this is exactly like going to watford


60-Sixty

I think that’s his point man


J_1995

"He's not for sale... but if you have €40m we can talk"


NoiLLion

"He's not available to talk...But he can be."


rsousa_22

Lmao Bruno Andrade this guy is as accurate as a blind man playing darts


User_1115

More than that really


Desirsar

40 now or someone better goes for 60 in the summer. The clubs trying to drag these out aren't seeing offers later.


fastablastarasta

Would the player even want to go?


MiguelAlmiron

Yes, we will triple his salary.


randomafricanboi

Newcastle flairs are getting more based every day


OleoleCholoSimeone

There's a difference between actively wanting to move and being "okay" with it if Sevilla decides to sell and he gets a ridiculous salary. It's not like he's pushing for a move lol


adirFBS

there was a report earlier today that he was putting pressure on sevilla to accept, cant remember who it was from though so could easily be bullshit


Scalenuts

I'm sure they will be paying him ridiculous money but Sevilla should 100% hold on until the end of the season.


fap4jesus

doubt newcastle wouldve put a bid in if he didnt


HappyMeerkat

Have you not seen our attempts for Vlahovic and Villas for ESR?


CaptainGo

Eh I think we've done that twice now. Digne was one of them


TimFM97

Nope, who would go to a relegation side in the Premier League from a team playing Champions League, Newcastle fans are delusional stick to Chris Wood 😂


Kneepi

People who want to make as much money as possible in their career, look at all the players who went to China in their prime


TimFM97

Also barely players who could hit the european top, maybe Oscar and Hulk not, the rest wouldn't make the top


Kneepi

Barcelona bought Paulinho from Guangzhou Evergrande


TimFM97

And they instantly regretted it and sold him the following year, which is my point.


Kneepi

Ah, you're one of them... He was a success, he played pretty much every match, he wanted back to easy and more money


Shlongmong

Trippier moved from athletico


TimFM97

And wasn't first team player lol


Shlongmong

What? He played majority of their games and last season he was even on La Liga team of the season.


BigReeceJames

What we all suspected anyway when the rumours of a move being close came out. It was never going to be as cheap as people were claiming and it was incredibly unlikely to happen in a season where the team he's leaving is doing better than normal, with an incredible defensive record.


leighshakespeare

If wood was worth 25m and Maguire was valued at near 80 mill, this guy is 100 plus by those numbers


TimFM97

Not like he would want to join a relegation side anyways.


mattisafootballguy

It doesn't matter frankly. Money talks first for most people. And that in and of itself is not a bad thing, but given the circumstances - moving from a title challenger/a club that is likely to get consistent CL football for years to come to a relegation side is some state. The worst part is this is the norm, feels very, very fake.


TimFM97

Not really people rather play in the CL as in the championship I'm pretty sure. Players like Trippier and Woods know they won't go to any other big clubs so they take the money, but players like these don't pick money over reputation.


Kneepi

Robinho went to Man City without even understanding what he was signing up for, Oscar went to China ending his international career, Hulk played a bunch of years in China as well. Players go for money, and if it can be had while playing in a top league even better. (Even if it might only be for another 6 months....)


TimFM97

There is a difference between man city, who were solid at that time in the PL or Chinese teams who play ACL and a team that will relegate to the championship.


alexLAD

Still a fair bit to play out this season - you can’t say Newcastle are going down just yet


TimFM97

I meannnnn, their form, Burnley with 2 games in hand. I can see Newcastle relegate yes but that’s my opinion obviously.


BullyBlu

I'm pretty sure you live on a different planet? This is 2022 40k PW to play CL or 120k to play in the PL


TimFM97

You mean Championship


DanyalH

Isn't the whole point in Newcastle signing him that they're trying to stay in the prem? Quality CB in his prime would help with that no?


TimFM97

So getting a whole new squad is gonna have them stay up? I think maybe for Newcastle it's a good thing they go down so they can completely build a new team, because even with Trippier you lose to a League 1 team. So no excuses I think Burnley is still a better team and they still got 2 games in hand. I don't think Newcastle will get out of this by signing the likes of Trippier and Woods-caliber of players.


StuartBannigan

What makes Diego Carlos a "player like this" and not Trippier?


TimFM97

Because Trippier is old and didn't had a big future anymore at Atletico, he sees Newcastle as his retirement home, he maybe got 3-4 years left in him. Perfect for Championship.


NoiLLion

Newcastles is like a teenage girl who's been given a 1000k credit card and has 10 minutes to buy everything.


PurpleSi

And yet so far we've bought the footballing equivalent of a set of encyclopaedias and a sensible coat. We're actually being pretty well behaved I think.
