‘Breaking news’ on talkSPORT – Newcastle United have £25m bid for Brazilian rejected

According to some ‘breaking news’ emerging from talkSPORT, Newcastle United have had a £25m bid rejected for Sevilla centre-back Diego Carlos.

They report that the La Liga side were quick to turn down our offer, stating it could take as much as £40m to bring the Brazilian to St James’ Park this month.

This comes after the club had a £30m bid for Lille’s Sven Botman rejected earlier this week, with the French side determined to keep a hold of the 21-year-old.

Yesterday, The Telegraph reported that Carlos has been identified as a potential alternative to the Dutchman, as the recruitment team on Tyneside are believed to be big admirers of the defender – known for his aggression and athleticism – who helped Sevilla to Europa League glory just a few years ago.

Interesting, Luke Edwards (The Telegraph) also wrote last night that a formal move would be made for Carlos if we failed with our second bid for Botman, making today’s ‘breaking news’ potentially telling.

This is talkSPORT after all – a platform that specialise in riling fans up and down the country for the sake of a few views – however The Athletic have since confirmed that talks with Sevilla are continuing after we had a bid rejected for the Brazilian…
