According to reports in France, Newcastle have been “offered the chance” to sign PSG left-back Layvin Kurzawa.
The report, which comes from Inter Milan news outlet FC Inter News, says that Kurzawa’s agents have presented Newcastle the opportunity to sign their client on a free transfer this summer.
Kurzawa’s contract expires in Paris this summer and there’s already been a whole host of teams linked. Arsenal were linked in January and reportedly still want the left-back, while Manchester United are also said to be sniffing around.
The 27-year-old obviously wouldn’t command a transfer fee but he would require a hefty salary that you can most definitely assume will be a six figure sum each week.
This new link is, as all the others over the last few weeks have been, Kurzawa’s agent using the name of the newest financial powerhouse on the block in Newcastle to try and ignite some sort of bidding war and boost the earnings of the player and simultaneously their own.
There’s already somewhere around 15 of these links and I imagine there’ll only more and more as the weeks rumble on this summer. When the takeover is officially announced, I’m personally expecting a tidal wave of these rumours.
You thought we were linked with a lot of players before? Just wait for the sheer sh*tstorm that’s about to hit us this summer…
