Newcastle United were purchased by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund last October and a month later, they appointed Eddie Howe as Steve Bruce’s successor.
Earlier this month, Kieran Trippier became the Magpies’ first signing under the new owner and the new manager. The right-back joined them from Atlético Madrid and the move allowed the former Burnley man to return to the Premier League.
The Tyneside club are still not done with their transfer business in January and Trippier’s old teammate, Yannick Carrasco, is on their target list. That’s according to El Chiringuito.
El Chiringuito have provided updates on this case and that is relayed by AS. After taking Trippier, Newcastle ‘intend to repeat’ the move to sign Belgium international in the final days of the window.
Atlético’s ‘response is eloquent: clause or nothing’. They have no intention to part ways with the attacker midway through the season. Should Howe’s side still insist to sign the 29-year-old, Los Rojiblancos will refer to his buyout clause.
AS claim the release clause is €60m. Fichajes, on the other hand, suggest it’s €75m.
La Razón are claiming Carrasco’s release clause is set at €100m and due to the high figure, the Belgian’s ‘departure seems complicated’ in January.
