According to rumors, Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United has made headway in its summer transfer season pursuit of Marc Cucurella from Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea.
The Telegraph claimed on August 14 that Newcastle wanted to buy Cucurella from Premier League rival Chelsea.
According to the article, the Magpies reportedly believe that the 25-year-old left-back from Spain’s national team “would like to make the move” to St. James’ Park during the summer transfer window.
The Telegraph claims that another player Chelsea would want to get is the Spanish left-back, who makes £175,000 per week.
The former champions of the UEFA Champions League and the Premier League suddenly seem amenable to a loan deal for Cucurella.
According to tweets from Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea is willing to loan Cucurella out in the last days of the summer transfer window.
According to Romano, Manchester United and Chelsea are in negotiations to capture the former Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder.
Cucurella has so far made 59 appearances in the Premier League.
The left-back has 12 clean sheets, one goal, three assists, and those games.
