On the again of this growth, it has since been revealed that Newcastle’s new homeowners boast wealth price effectively over 10 occasions that of Manchester Metropolis’s present homeowners.
It has additionally been suggested that the Magpies will be capable of spend over £200 million over the following three years, with out breaching Monetary Honest Play guidelines.
In flip, with Newcastle now seemingly the richest membership in world soccer, it’s after all anticipated that the Geordie outfit will spend huge over the approaching months.
Although Newcastle now have the richest homeowners in world soccer, they’re, regardless of all of the memes on social media, clearly not going to have the ability to carry the caliber of gamers corresponding to Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe.
What the Magpies ought to be capable of do, nonetheless, is goal a number of the fringe stars on the greater Premier League golf equipment.
Stated gamers have been seemingly out of attain from Newcastle in earlier years partially as a result of North East outfit’s restricted price range and in addition as a result of, let’s be sincere, only a few prime stars would have left golf equipment like Chelsea and Manchester United to hitch Newcastle.
And while it may nonetheless take just a few years earlier than Newcastle are capable of really set up themselves as a top-half Premier League facet, a pleasant hefty wage packet will seemingly persuade some gamers to make the step right down to Newcastle.
With this in thoughts, listed here are three Chelsea gamers Newcastle ought to goal within the January switch window.
On paper, Ross Barkley looks as if the right January signing for Newcastle.
The Englishman’s time at Chelsea has been fairly underwhelming and, with 18 months left on his present deal come January, the Blues transferring Barkley on over the winter does make sense.
To date this time period, the midfielder has amassed simply 36 minutes of motion for Chelsea throughout all competitions, suggesting that it in all probability wouldn’t take a lot for Chelsea to half with him.
From Newcastle’s perspective, in the meantime, they’d be getting a Premier League-proven midfielder who would solely be 28 on the time of signing – which means they need to get at the very least three years out of Barkley at his greatest.
And although he has struggled at Stamford Bridge, Barkley’s mortgage stint with Aston Villa final time period confirmed he’s nonetheless very a lot succesful at this stage when given an opportunity.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek is in the same state of affairs to the aforementioned Barkley.
Although he has performed extra minutes in 2021/22 – 215 throughout 5 outings – it’s truthful to say that Loftus-Cheek continues to be very a lot 4th or 5th selection in Chelsea’s midfield pecking order at current.
And with Billy Gilmour and Conor Gallagher returning to the membership subsequent yr, it does appear as if the 25-year-old’s alternative to nail down a daily spot in Chelsea’s midfield has come and gone.
This isn’t to say that RLC just isn’t somebody price focusing on, nonetheless, particularly for an up-and-coming facet like Newcastle.
The Englishman has been hampered by accidents all through his profession, however when match, his potential to take gamers on and management play from deep, like he has executed occasionally for Chelsea this seaosn, is definitely a optimistic.
The ultimate Chelsea participant Newcastle ought to look to signal is Hakim Ziyech.
This choose is probably the least seemingly possibility on the listing, however with Ziyech nonetheless having did not turn into a daily characteristic at Chelsea below Thomas Tuchel, who is aware of what may occur if the best supply got here in.
The Moroccan has definitely proven patches of high quality all through his Chelsea profession, however each time he has put collectively a good run of kind, it has typically been ended by damage.
And with Ziyech not becoming in to Tuchel’s system too effectively, maybe Chelsea may promote Ziyech in January, particularly as he’s already 28 and sure Chelsea’s least useful attacking asset.
Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi are additionally on the fringes of the Londoners’ assault. However each are considerably youthful than Ziyech and CHO can also be used as right-wing-back below Tuchel, making him a extra essential asset at current.
