Speaking to El Chiringuito, the 25-year-old said: “I believe in cycles. There comes a moment where you consider things. There comes a time for a change and after five years, that time has probably come.

"To return to your country in a big team would be something good for my career.”

Perez has scored 27 Premier League goals for Newcastle.

The former Spain Under-21 international has netted five times in the league so far this season.

United are 13th in the division ahead of Monday night's game against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
