We all knew Newcastle United would be busy in this transfer window and reports and rumors on Tuesday show that it was no joke.
How about taking away his relegation rival’s only real goal by activating his release clause? That appears to be happening with Burnley forward Chris Wood, who underwent a medical examination before joining Newcastle. Then there is a report of a possible return to the Premier League for Marouane Fellaini.
Among the other tidbits of the day, Barcelona is trying to bounce back from the past and José Mourinho is making moves at AS Roma.
And there are still 20 days in the window.
Benitez ready to spend a lot in Russian?
Everton is reportedly considering a move for AS Monaco’s Russian midfielder Aleksandr Golovin, but the Championat report picked up by the Liverpool Echo says the French club wants $ 45- $ 55 million.
Do the Toffees have an appetite to flip that kind of coin this January? His position at 15th in the Premier League standings could lead to some risky decisions.
Latest Newcastle rumor … Fellaini?
Perhaps the rumor mill around Newcastle finally jumped to the shark with the mention of a possible Mo Fellaini return. That’s what La Derniere Heure is reporting in Belgium, which also points to Galatasaray and Besiktas as potential suitors to lure the Belgian midfielder from China.
And the list of names keeps growing:
Based on today’s medical tests, AS Monaco expects Badiashile to be back with the team in 2-3 weeks. Time will be the key to understanding the next steps.
