There’s some good and bad news being reported today when it comes to Newcastle’s latest attempts to bring Kenedy back to the club this summer.
They state that Chelsea are ‘open to negotiations’ and in talks over a deal which could mean a loan with an option to buy for in excess of £20m.
#cfc are in talks with #nufc over departure of Kenedy. A loan with option to buy has been discussed. Chelsea are asking for £20m+ which is why Newcastle are looking to loan first. But fact Chelsea are open to negotiations suggests he’s not part of their plans.

Claims that he could cost £30m are worrying – with it being an inflated fee Mike Ashley seems so unlikely to pay – but talk of a loan with an option to buy for little over £20m seems far more doable.
How much do you think Kenedy’s worth? Is £30m the going rate for a player of his potential or would you look elsewhere if that was his price tag?
