Sky Sports: Newcastle’s £30m move for Diego Carlos hijacked by Premier League rivals

According to some ‘breaking news’ from Sky Sports, an unnamed Premier League club are attempting to hijack Diego Carlos’ potential move to Newcastle United.

They claim that our offer of £30m for the Brazilian centre-back has now been matched by one of our Premier League rivals, stating that a side in Serie A have also come in with an offer.

The bid from Italy is believed to be ‘below £30m’, however news of a rival bidder in England could do one of two things.

It could either delay any potential move to St James’ Park for the 28-year-old, giving both the player and Sevilla another option to consider, or it could kick our new owners into action and force them to meet the La Liga side’s asking price; believed to be around £40m according to reports today.

Let’s hope it’s the latter that happens as a result, with us in desperate need of new signings and boosts both on and off the pitch ahead of Saturday’s trip to Leeds.

Here’s a clip of the breaking story that emerged on Sky Sports News in the last few moments.

Another Premier League club have made a bid for Sevilla centre back Diego Carlos today.

The bid is believed to match Newcastle United’s offer for the player which Sky Sports News understands is worth £30m.

An Italian club have also made an offer, but it is below £30m.

I have my doubts about this, if I’m being honest.

It just seems pretty convenient that, just as Sevilla are pushing to receive the biggest fee possible after Carlos’ request to leave, bids arrive from from two ‘unnamed’ clubs in England and Italy.

An attempt to hoist up the price and push our new owners to pay more out of sheer panic? I think it just might be…

  1. I was thinking exactly that. I think it’s just a tactic, as they know we are getting desperate. I think we should call their bluff.

  2. Like many others, I also share this view. I can’t think of any other Premier League side that needs Carlos, apart from Norwich; are they prepared to pay that money or wages.
    Look elsewhere, obviously a ploy for more money. We need a pacey forward as well as three defenders sooner than later. Push on and forget Carlos.

  5. He is in tonight’s starting 11. I guess they don’t want to sell or are calling our bluff.

  6. Taking a different view. Do we need him? Yes we do! Can we survive in PL without players of his quality? No we can’t!
    If we continue to conduct all our transfer business via the media we can’t complain when the heat gets turned up on us. Get the deal done, pay up, learn from the mistakes and move on. No new defenders= no points from Elland Road on Saturday. That is the harsh reality of where we are.
