Sky Sports confirm Newcastle United’s interest in another Brazilian international

Newcastle United are showing interest in Brazilian international defender Renan Lodi, according to Sky Sports.

As revealed by Keith Downie – Sky’s North-East correspondent – the Atletico Marid left-back is a player we’re believed to be looking at and could form part of our summer transfer plans.

This is not the first time the 24-year-old has been linked with a possible switch to St James’ Park, with an Football Transfers ‘exclusive’ revealing that we showed interest in the La Liga full-back during the final week of the January window.

It’s not yet clear, but this feels like further confirmation that Eddie Howe is not set on a permanent move for Matt Targett, despite the fact the Aston Villa loanee has impressed during his short stay on Tyneside.

Any move for Lodi would also see yet another Brazilian arrive – he plays alongside Bruno Guimaraes in the national side – not to mention the fact he’d know Kieran Trippier well from their time together at Atletico Madrid.

Here’s what Keith Downie had to say, seeing Sky Sports sources confirm our interest in the marauding South American:

  1. Yeah sure, we will spend a bundle on new players and will compete for one of the European cups following this season and incidentlally most will come from Brasil , that along with those who border the Rio Plata both Argentina and Uruguay. Home of some of the best footballing talent in the world.
    IT appears to be about expansion and money, as allways.
    It appears a number of European clubs are feeling the bight of a game expanding rapidly
    and leaving them short of a dollar or two, even those owned by rich financiers such as the large Italian auto manufacturers and the ultra wealthy clubs such as Real Madrid, who would like to see a change by introducing a Super European league that they can control and reset the direction of the flow of euros, to-wards them.
    Of course the EPL having already re -arranged the former 1st, division , into the EPL and earning big bucks from the tv industry, by selling rights, are making out fine and now dominate the industry, at least in the uk.
    As a result a number of English clubs appear to dominate the market, with billionaires from the uk and a umber of overseas countries investing in their clubs and as a result appear to dominate this profession sport, that is not just foreign businesses but entire countries.
    We will most likely be aware of the fact these old and formerly wealthy clubs will continue to replace the present world set up and attempt to retain a certain kind of
    ownership who can re-direct the direction of the revenues they can no longer afford
    towards their clubs, one more.
    It appears to remain their main goal (no pun intended) but on a number of occasions
    they have not been successful in attempting to introduce from the group of 18 and other attempts , to the most recent where they lost a vote by the epl clubs and hastily changed their minds, of course most lower level clubs within the epl. were never invited to join
    resulting in only the English BIG clubs agreeing ,which was expected by most and still remains a threat. So just be prepared for further action on this subject, during the approaching seasons. as it is always of importance to watch the best play the best and the European tournaments are a reminder.
