Not only has Rafa Benitez admitted that he’s received some positive news on two ‘good deals’ for Newcastle United, Miguel Almiron has now posted his goodbye message to Atlanta as he jets to the UK to complete his move.
He may not be the only one signing today too, with the Chronicle confirming that Monaco left-back Antonio Barreca is also due on Tyneside – with both expected to complete medicals ‘in the next 24 hours’.
Here’s what Rafa Benitez had to say on the transfer front after last night’s win over City – with his sudden decision to talk about incomings suggesting we’ve FINALLY made a big breakthrough:
“Today before the game I was told we were progressing with some names.
“They could be good deals for Newcastle United.”
“If we have good news tomorrow it will be positive.
“It is not just about breaking the transfer record.”
To make matters that bit more comfortable, Almiron has all but confirmed he’s leaving on his official Instagram page.
He’s just sent this goodbye message to Atlanta, stating “Thank you Atlanta for all the support. I love you all.”:
Here’s Almiron all set to board his flight to England from Atlanta Airport (released around 2am UK time):
It’s happening folks – and it looks like Barreca will be joining him, FINALLY giving Rafa another left-back and a much needed number 10.
