Newcastle United had had the money since the Saudi takeover. Winter transfers that are too big won’t materialize yet. Probably one of the players is Jorginho Wijnaldum. He may be able to leave PSG on loan in the winter.

Newcastle United has no shortage of money. The Premier League club will undoubtedly have the financial means to take on the commitments of Erling Haaland, Kylian Mbappe and similar cadres. Also at the same time, no doubt. However, there won’t be very big purchases this transfer winter.

The reason is as clear as it is realistic from the club’s perspective: there is no sporting perspective whatsoever. On the contrary: after 19 matches, the magpie team occupies the penultimate position in the table. There is a risk of relegation to England’s second division, the Championship. No known player would want to play there, even if he would earn less at the big clubs.

So, in the next few weeks, it will likely turn into smaller transfers as well as loans. For the latter, it appears that a target has already been set: Georginio Wijnaldum, who has played for PSG since the summer.

Apparently, a loan deal should be planned until the summer (via sports image). There is currently no talk of a subsequent acquisition, any purchase option. The salary of the Dutchman, who left Liverpool for the current season on a free transfer, will not be a problem for Newcastle. French the team He also spoke recently about United’s interest.

Wijnaldum has only missed three league games with Paris Saint-Germain, two of them due to knee problems. However, under coach Mauricio Pochettino, he was also not a ranked player in the starting lineup. In just nine matches he was allowed to play from the start. Otherwise, the Argentine doesn’t seem to be a huge fan of the midfielder.

In the second half of the season, the leaders of the French League could dispense with the national player 85 times without major problems. So it is conceivable to get a loan in principle. However, it is questionable whether he will take on the task of staying in touch with the Magpies just to play more regularly. This is an aspect that, at the age of 31, he no longer had to pursue it passionately afterwards in order to accept the sporting compromises.

Wijnaldum’s past in Newcastle hardly changes those suspicions. In the 2015/2016 season, he played for the club before moving to the Reds. It seems that loaning another team is more realistic. Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in other candidates.
