Newcastle, armed with Saudi oil money, breaks the club’s highest transfer fee ‘116.4 billion’ bet

This is leading to the effect of widening the recruitment candidates of Newcastle United, which has limited support from Saudi Arabia’s oil money.

Spanish media ‘Mundo Deportivo’ reported on the 4th (Korean time) that ‘Newcastle is considering signing Rafinha (27, FC Barcelona) from Brazil. It could break the record of Aleksandar Isaac, who was recruited for the club’s highest transfer fee ever.”

Newcastle signed Swedish striker Isaac from Real Sociedad for £60 million (approximately 99.9 billion won) in the transfer market last summer. It was the highest transfer fee ever for the club.

It is an assessment that he is paying enough ransom. In the first three matches of the Premier League, he scored two goals and contributed to a record of two wins and one draw. However, he was sidelined for a while due to a muscle injury and only returned after the New Year, scoring 8 goals and 1 assist, including 2 goals against Tottenham Hotspur in April.

With a total of 17 league games, 10 goals and 1 assist, Newcastle’s run to third place is contributing to the achievement of close to the European Football Federation Champions League (UCL) next season. The performance of the match where Isaac recorded the attack point also gained wings with 8 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss.

If the right to advance to UCL is finally secured, reinforcement of power is essential. Mundo Deportivo as well as Newcastle’s local newspaper ‘Newcastle Chronicle’ poured out reports weighing on the possibility of Rafinha’s recruitment.

Barcelona are also under financial pressure and need to dispose of their high-paying players. Rafinha joined Barcelona from Leeds United last summer. At the time, the transfer fee was 55.5 million pounds (approximately 75.9 billion won).

However, in order for Newcastle to sign him in one season, more money is inevitable. It is known that Barcelona have already made a verbal offer of £70 million (116.4 billion won) to Newcastle.먹튀검증

This is an amount that exceeds Isaac’s transfer fee. Still, from Newcastle’s point of view, it is a judgment that there are plenty of live ammunition and that it does not violate the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rule. In the 2021-22 season Leeds witnessed Rafinha recording 11 goals and 3 assists in 35 games, and it was concluded that adaptation to the Premier League itself was not a problem.

At the time of the transfer, Arsenal and Chelsea showed interest, but Barcelona, ​​which needed expensive player recruitment, was caught up in excessive spending and wore a uniform. As the season draws to a close, Barcelona are on the verge of winning the Primera Liga, but at the same time struggling with a financial crisis.

The problem is the hapina persuasion. Rafinha is said to be satisfied with the environment, such as the mild climate of Spain, and is not happy about returning to England. However, the variable is that there are Brazilian national teammates such as Joellington and Bruno Gimarangis in Newcastle.
