On May 21st, AS reported Giorgi Mamardashvili ‘will have no choice’ but to join Newcastle United, if Valencia were to accept their offer.

Three days later, journalist Nacho Sanchis stated the Magpies are ready to offer €25m, which is €10m short of the Spanish club’s request.

Recent claims in the UK have said that Newcastle want to secure a deal for the goalkeeper before the start of the Euros on June 14th.

This is relayed by El Desmarque, who then state Newcastle are ‘still the most interested team’ to sign the 23-year-old. They add it would cost around €40m to take him away from Los Ches.

As of now, his future remains uncertain. The Georgia international said “let’s go for more”, after he made his 100th appearance for the club at the weekend.

El Desmarque say Valencia are only willing to sell him if there’s an acceptable offer, otherwise he will continue at the club.

AS also discuss Newcastle’s interest in the Georgia international, who is open to staying at Mestalla next season. It’s claimed the Magpies are the ‘most interested team’, and the Spanish club need at least €35m to hold talks for his transfer.

If the stopper were to leave, it’s stated he wants to join a club that can offer him European football. That won’t be possible at Newcastle next season after Manchester United secured a berth in the Europa League following their FA Cup success.

That claim may be questionable.

El Desmarque state Valencia need around €40m, while AS say €35m is his starting price.
