According to reports on Monday morning, Miguel Almiron is closing in on a shock move to Saudi Arabia.
Ben Jacobs, a former reporter for beIN Sports, disclosed that Al-Shabab and Newcastle have “reached a provisional agreement” about a deal for the Paraguayan player. Miggy is also “open to the move,” he continues, but he issues a warning that the transaction is “not done yet.”
The South American, who turns 30 next month, can be viewed as one of our sellable assets and might be given up in our effort to control FFP and the Premier League’s sustainability and profit regulations.
In recent days, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid have shown interest in Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson, respectively. However, it was reported on Sunday that the club was sure that neither was going anywhere.
So, could it be Almiron who is moved on? Interestingly, Al-Shabab are not one of the Saudi Pro League clubs owned by PIF, although inevitable questions would be asked if the fee was big.
