It’s a simple question really, but I very much doubt there will be a simple answer to the question of how much you think NUFC will spend in the summer.
With the money that was brought in from the sale of Andy Carroll to Liverpool on transfer deadline day, all £36 million of it by all accounts, there is a feeling that this summer could be an exciting time on the transfer front. After all, we have a full wallet and we have an apparent intent to spend it on strengthening the team.
What do you expect of it though? Do you expect that the full amount will be splashed out on new signings? Do you think that Alan Pardew saying that the money will be spent on fees AND wages will mean that we only see a proportion of it spent on transfer fees?
I personally think the latter. I think that we will see around £15-£20 million spent on incoming players, with the rest spent on trying to secure the services of some of our current players, like Jose Enrique and Joey Barton for example. Whether or not they want to sign on again though is a different question.
It’s only a short article, but those are my thoughts. What i really want to know is what you think will happen in the summer?
