Newcastle set to bring Premier League legend back to England

Newcastle want to pull off the unthinkable…

Newcastle have had an absolutely tremendous start to the Premier League this season. In what seems like a complete U-turn, the Magpies find themselves heading into the World Cup break in the top four, something which they would have deemed to be unthinkable heading into this term.

It is not only successes on the pitch which have Eddie Howe’s side jumping for joy. In an infamous English working-class city, the fans have never given up on their side and they have been rewarded with a lucrative takeover. Under new ownership, they are now one of the world’s richest clubs.

This oftentimes leads clubs to become world beaters, both domestically and in Europe. Despite Eddie Howe doing exceptionally well with what he has at his doorstep, the English manager wishes to improve the squad and to do so, he will need financial backing from the board in January – it goes without saying he’s earned it.

According to Catalan outlet El Nacional, Newcastle and Aston Villa are the two front-runners to sign Eden Hazard of Real Madrid. He will likely cost around £17m. It is thought the Belgian winger is fed up of trying to make it at the Bernabeu. Real Madrid does not seem like the right fit for him – he’s not been helped by injury setbacks either.

Hazard enjoyed great success when he last played in the Premier League with Chelsea. He is known as one of their legends for his fine spell, under which he won two league titles, two Europa League trophies, the FA Cup and two league cups. Long story short, he needed to upgrade his living room cabinet.

He is known as a tricky winger who has a low centre of gravity. He is very annoying for any defender to defend against – especially when you consider how the ball practically sticks to his feet.

There are, of course, mentality issues for Newcastle to think about before they commit to signing him. Hazard is known to play for the manager when it’s going right, but when it goes wrong it becomes a different story. Still, Newcastle will be hopeful that Howe is the right person to man-manage the Belgian superstar.
