Newcastle line up Bayern Munich star as first signing of transfer revolution

Newcastle line up Bayern Munich star as first signing of transfer revolution

Newcastle remain managerless

Newcastle parted ways with Steve Bruce two weeks ago, as the club’s new owners sought to put their own stamp on ongoings at the club.

However, they have so far been unsuccessful in finding a replacement, despite a long and public search.

Unai Emery was reportedly the Magpies’ first choice for the job, but the former Arsenal boss came out yesterday to reveal that he had turned the opportunity down, in favour of staying with current side Villarreal, with whom he won the Europa League in May.

As such, it seems very much a return to the drawing board on the managerial side of things at St. James’ Park, which could see caretaker boss Graeme Jones remain in charge for Saturday’s clash with Brighton.

New transfer target emerges

This has not stopped Newcastle’s transfer plans, however, with ideas for strengthening the squad still swirling around despite the hole that exists at managerial level.

As per transfer journalist Christian Falk, Bayern Munich defender Niklas Sule is the latest man on their radar. Seemingly laughable at first given the relative stature of the clubs, Falk reveals that “the Newcastle United project interests him”, and that Sule has no issue with the fact that they wouldn’t be competing in Europe.

The 26-year-old is out of contract next summer, and has as of yet seen attempts to extend his deal at a minimum, meaning he could walk away for nothing in 2022. For the Magpies, it would represent a massive coup and a huge statement if they could snag a defender once linked with Manchester United and Chelsea.
