According to Todo Fichajes, Newcastle have “practically closed” a deal with Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino which will see him become the manager of the club for next season.
This report, which comes from a Spanish outlet, also states that Pochettino wants to bring Harry Kane in as his top priority signing when he takes over as manager – which, if I’m being totally honest, is the stupidest thing I’ve literally ever heard.
It says that Pochettino has already been in contact with Kane to bring him to Tyneside and the club have made signing the England skipper their ‘top priority’.
While it’d be amazing, there’s absolutely no chance in hell that’s happening!
This is just the latest in a long line of stories that have hit the media that constitute one of a number of things.
They are either: agents playing games to try and earn more money for them and their clients, agents trying to manufacture a move for their client or, and this is the one where you can find this story, media outlets making stuff up to jump on the NUFC takeover bandwagon and gain a massive amount of clicks from a fanbase desperate for news.
Don’t just take this with a pinch of salt – you need a whole bloody truck for this one.
