Yesterday we covered an article from AS in Spain about young Tenerife striker Nano attracting some attention from England, more precisely from Newcastle in the Championship.
Rafa Benitez is clearly trying to get some players to bolster his squad ahead of the tough season for his (relatively) new club in England’s second-tier, and the 21-year-old striker’s performances have caught his eye.
The player himself revealed to the Spanish newspaper he would only be open to moving from Tenerife if the deal would benefit both himself and his current club.
This time, it’s Marca who cover the story, and they explain the player wouldn’t exactly cost much for the Championship side considering there is a €4m release clause in Nano’s contract.
The Spanish second-tier club have made it clear they will not accept bids below this clause, and the player himself wouldn’t be against staying if that happened, but he will leave everything up to his agents.
He said: “I’m on holiday, and now I want peace. It’s the best season that I’ve done but it’s also thanks to the help of my teammates. I will leave the rest to my agents, I have a lot of faith in them.”
With two years left on his contract, and 14 goals in 35 games last season for Tenerife, Newcastle could end up with a very promising forward on their hands, ideally one who will be able to help them in the Premier League in the near future.
First, though, mission promotion.
