Chelsea decide to cash in on Kenedy – NUFC told the price they’ll have to pay – Report

According to the Chronicle, Chelsea look set to cash in on Kenedy this summer – but they will demand a fee in the region of £20m for the Brazilian.

This almost certainly means that we’ll have to break our 13 year-old club record signing (£17m for Michael Owen in 2005) if we wish to sign the 22-year-old permanently – a move Mike Ashley may be reluctant to sanction.

Either way, it’s positive to hear that Chelsea are now willing to part with the winger, although another loan deal with an obligation to buy may suit us far more financially?

Here’s what the Chronicle have had to say after hearing wind from the capital that Kenedy could now be available:

“Newcastle United may need to break their transfer record in order to bring Kenedy back to Tyneside this summer – with Chelsea considering cashing in on the winger.

“According to sources in the capital, Chelsea may need to offload some of their fringe players in order to raise transfer funds – and Kenedy, who is valued at around £20million, is seen as one of their most-saleable assets.”

With them missing out on the Champions League, it sounds like Kenedy has been identified as one of their ‘most-saleable assets’ in order for them to raise funds this summer.

The big problem – will be pay that sort of money for him? History suggests we won’t given Ashley’s reluctance to ever spend over £14m, however claims that he has been made available does give us and Benitez a glimmer of hope.

Would you pay the alleged £20m asking price to bring him back for good?

  1. The fat git Ashley won’t spend to buy him – even though he was one of the main reasons we manage to avoid the drop.

    How I wish Cashley would “do one”.


  2. As usual we will hang about, while others bite the bullet and pay for a proven winner.his value will only appreciate in time.with funds from the sales of M,Bemba,Saivet,Merino,Sells, Colback and Arrons, we can afford this oportunity, to acquire a star of the future. We should nett about £40M for this sextet and make a huge saving on the wage bill. Add to that the potential sales of Mitrovic,Gayle and Joselu, with astute manouvre ring we could get close to a further £40M. How badly we need a negotiator. Bring in Rondon and promote Armstrong. We really must offload the dross, they are slowing down the progress


  3. £20m is a good price for this lad who is class, but as we all know Ashley will not spend that sort of money this is why we need him out, and now!
