Newcastle ready to undermine Barca and PSG plans with young star


Newcastle would be ready to line up a salary of 8 million euros per year to sign Youssoufa Moukoko (Borussia Dortmund). An amount that could allow the Magpies to beat rivals like PSG or Barça, on his record.

Youssoufa Moukoko Dortmund

According to information published by the London Evening Standard, Newcastle have taken action to secure the services of Youssoufa Moukoko next summer. The 18-year-old is out of contract with Borussia Dortmund. The striker reportedly refused an extension offer with a salary of 6 million euros per year. The Magpies would be willing to offer more. The English have reportedly submitted a salary proposal of €8m per season. It could be accepted by the player, who has been free to negotiate with other clubs since the beginning of January.

Newcastle are building a very competitive squad

Bad news for his other courtiers, who will have to line up if they want to keep a chance to sign him. Chelsea, PSG and Barça would be among them. But if the Parisian and London clubs are able to compete with the Premier League formation, this is not the case with the Catalan formation. The club chaired by Joan Laporta is forced to part with players to reduce the amount of its payroll and avoid sanctions linked to financial fair play. He shouldn’t be able to continue the race to sign the German.

Current third in the Premier League, Newcastle is building a very solid squad without making too much noise. Bought by the Saudi public fund a little over a year ago, the club spent “only” 88 million euros during the summer transfer window. An amount well below the investments made by its English competitors. Its recruitment is proving to be very effective so far!
