Journalist reveals what Miguel Almiron is now saying about a potential move to NUFC..

According to the Chronicle’s Mark Douglas, Miguel Almiron is ‘interested in working with Rafa Benitez’ – and feels that a move to Newcastle would offer him a perfect opportunity to play regular first-team football in the Premier League. 

It’s become clear that the MLS star is Rafa’s number one target when it comes to a much needed new number, and although no deal has been agreed of yet (contrary to some Paraguyan reporters claims), it’s great to hear that the player himself is keen to make the move. 

Here’s a snippet from Douglas’ piece for the Chronicle

“United have been heavily linked with the player and a scouting trip by Steve Nickson recently convinced the player’s camp that Newcastle are serious about their interest.

“The player is understood to be interested in working with Rafa Benitez and understands that Newcastle would offer him a huge platform and first team football after his MLS Cup win with Atlanta United.”

It’s also being reported in the Chronicle today that Benitez will be backed in January regardless of any potential takeover, however I have real reservations about Ashley sanctioning this one.

Atlanta’s President confirmed just yesterday that they’d be looking for $30m (£23m) for their star man, and history suggests Ashley won’t pay anything near that.

For the sake of Rafa, our team and our push towards survival, I really hope a deal can be done for Almiron – a player who looks to have the ability to put smiles on the faces of both Benitez and us fans.

  1. Ashley’s boat is rocking according to a report in today’s money mail. He is at loggerheads with the board at Debenhams. Could be good news if he decides running a football club, on top of all his current problems, is getting too much, or bad news if he thinks he should hold on to the club as a source of revenue. Can’t read the outcome of this one.
