Kevin Keegan has insisted again that he and Dennis Wise has nothing to proof when talking about which transfer list that could act for Newcastle United. Keegan admits they both have a list of targets and he is “happy” and will be personally checking out Wise’s list.
King Kev also made it clear that if they bring players in who are not my players, I wouldn’t be managing this football club. He said there is only one list that will count and said that Dennis, Tony Jimenez and Jeff Vetere are here to give him the lists and had put a clear note that the final decision would be on his hand.
As for the latest Luka Modric transfer saga, Keegan said that he is one of the player who’s been identifying by him and Dennis. But, Keegan has told yesterday that the chance to sign him is slim and could be happen in a fantasy football. Today’s news reported one of Toon target, Luka Modric, has signed a 5 years contract with North London team Tottenham Hotspurs.
At the moment, Keegan is hoping that every Toon Army would have to be sensible and be realistic with any news about United’s potential targets.
More of the summer transfer possibilities, Keegan will be looking at ‘risky signings’ for less money, while at the same time he is refused to losing out to the big four. Keegan said there will still be enough ‘big names’ out there. But one thing that is beyond any possibilities, He will think twice to sign any players from South American country.
While still managing Manchester City, Keegan having had his fingers burned by signing Argentinian striker Matias Vuoso, but for United he will do a global search with Dennis Wise team and working together with them to find the right players to play for Toon next season.
