A journalist weighs in on the potential of Newcastle United acquiring a marquee forward.
Newcastle United may be tempted to enter the market for a superstar transfer like Neymar in the future.
When asked if Newcastle could sign Neymar from PSG, Sky journalist Dharmesh Sheth said it couldn’t be completely ruled out, even if it doesn’t currently appear to be in line with the Magpies’ transfer policy.
Despite their immense fortune, Newcastle’s owners do not appear to be aiming for quick success, but rather are developing a club for the future through wise signings of young players.
Someone like Neymar clearly wouldn’t fit in with that, and his presence could disrupt the dressing room, though Sheth still told Give Me Sport that it might be a tempting opportunity for NUFC at some point.
“The other factor you have to take into consideration as well is Newcastle have really done it in an organic way so far, haven’t they?” he said.
“But is there going to come a time where they think, yes we still want to continue doing it this way and build slowly, but maybe make a marquee signing somewhere along the line as well? That’s going to make everyone sit down and think ‘Wow, this is a huge signing’.”
It would certainly be exciting to see a natural talent and exciting performer like Neymar in the Premier League, even if we wouldn’t be getting him at the very height of his powers.
