Newcastle United ‘offered’ chance to sign PSG star as Manchester United ‘join race’ for Chelsea winger
Newcastle United have received a fresh blow in their hunt for a new winger this summer.
Here, we round-up all the latest transfer stories that have emerged today surrounding Newcastle United:
Pulisic to Manchester United?
Elsewhere, Newcastle could lose out on another of their attacking targets with reports that Manchester United have shown interest in Christian Pulisic.
Pulisic has struggled for game time at Chelsea this season and could see a loan-move away from the club as his best chance of getting regular first-team football in preparation for the World Cup at the end of the year.
Pulisic is captain of the USA side that are scheduled to face England in Qatar and The Athletic claim that he would prefer a move to Old Trafford this summer, despite reported interest from Newcastle United, Juventus and Atletico Madrid.
Pulisic has netted 25 goals in 117 games for the Blues since signing from Borussia Dortmund in 2019.
PSG star ‘offered’ to Newcastle
PSG have reportedly offered Newcastle United the chance to sign Mauro Icardi this summer.
Icardi, 29, joined the French champions in 2020 in a big-money move from Inter Milan, however, he has found himself down the pecking order in a star-studded attacking line-up.
The Argentine played just 30 times in all-competitions last season, netting just five goals.
According to Fabrizio Romano, PSG are willing to let Icardi leave this summer and have offered him to Newcastle as the Magpies search for attacking reinforcements.
Romano said: “I’ve written about Mauro Icardi being offered to Manchester United, and also Arsenal earlier in the summer, though they preferred to sign Gabriel Jesus.
“I can now reveal that the Argentine also been offered to Newcastle.
“Icardi’s situation is really difficult. PSG want to find a solution soon, but the player does not intend to accept unwanted destinations.
“He has been offered to Manchester United and Newcastle who have not made any kind of proposal for Icardi so far.
“There are also Galatasaray emissaries who contacted Icardi’s camp this week.”
Hugo Ekitike was one player that Newcastle had shortlisted as a potential signing this summer, but their efforts to sign the Frenchman were in vain as PSG swooped to sign the teenager.
