Let's say you were Sam Allardyce and have £50m to spend, what would you do? If I were Allardyce, the first thing that I will do is to make a bid to land Fernando Torres from Atletico Madrid. The Spanish side is asking a fee in the region of £20 million for the 23-year-old.
What! Am I insane to bid another striker while we needed the most is some defenders? Well, I only spend around half of my spending spree, in fact Torres is far more better than to bring Bellamy back. Then I will use the rests of the money to buy the defenders.
Alright, let’s back to the real business. After completed the £3 million signing of his long time chase of David Rozehnal from Paris Saint-Germain on a four-year contract, now Allardyce has turned his attentions to luring Habib Beye, the Senegal defender, from Marseilles.
Beye, 29, is comfortable at centre half or right back and would be a double benefits to add experience and expertise to help develop our young talented Steven Taylor into one of the best defender on the league.
With £50m in his hands, Big Sam now has more power to land a bid to any player he like to buy. The only problem is to find the right one and the player that is realy set his heart to play for Newcastle.
Meanwhile, Sam will shortly named Mark Taylor, who worked with him at Bolton Wanderers as Newcastle’s head of sports science. Allardyce is still intent on bringing Mike Forde from his former club to join him as performance director on the evolution of Newcastle United.
We believe that such important changes will involve a significant level of funding, and Mike Ashley’s determination to "build the biggest, the best and the most successful" Newcastle United is already on it’s way.
