Transfer expert addresses Coutinho & Icardi to Newcastle rumours

Philippe Coutinho

Newcastle taken over

You may not have heard yet as very little has been made of it, but Newcastle United now have new owners.

It was announced last week that the Magpies have been bought out by the SAPIF, PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media, with an official announcement having arrived on October 7th.

This now means that Newcastle United now have the richest owners in world football.

Obviously, this has led to countless players from around the globe already seeing themselves linked with a move to Newcastle despite the takeover, at the time of writing, being less than a week old.

Newcastle rumours addressed

Amongst the players rumoured to be interesting Newcastle have been FC Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho, PSG’s Mauro Icardi and Juventus’ Aaron Ramsey.

However, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has now spoken out on said rumours and all but put them to bed.

Speaking on the latest episode of his Here We Go podcast, Romano stated that there is nothing between Ramsey, Icardi and Newcastle.

And on Coutinho, he adds that, at the moment, neither of Coutinho’s camp nor Barcelona have received an approach from Newcastle.

“Let me say there is nothing between Ramsey and Newcastle. there is nothing between Mauro Icardi and Newcastle. also because for Mauro Icardi, to clarify, I was tweeting about it in the past few days, but Mauro Icardi is happy in Paris. I know maybe you can think okay he’s not playing he wants to go, it’s not like this. He’s happy in Paris as a city as a club so at the moment he’s not planning to change in January, and let’s see what happens in the summer but is not his plan to change in January

“And Coutinho, at the moment, they have not received any approach on Coutinho’s side and on Barcelona’s side from Newcastle.”
