Newcastle: Crook expects more twists in Emery saga

A fresh update has emerged on Villarreal boss Unai Emery, regarding a potential move to Newcastle this week.

What’s the talk?

talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook has claimed that the Spanish club are now confident of the ex-Arsenal man staying in Spain amidst the speculation over his future. He has, however, added that there are more twists to come in the story.

He wrote:Villarreal now confident Emery will turn down NUFC few more twists in this one…”

Would Emery be a good appointment?

Intrigue

This update from Crook will initially leave fans feeling confused about the whole situation in Tyneside.

Daily Mail journalist Craig Hope claimed that Emery told Newcastle he wanted the job on Tuesday before Guillem Balague then reported that he was now set to reject the club after his team’s 2-0 win over Young Boys in the Champions League last night.

However, Crook now states that Villarreal believe Emery will remain with the La Liga club, but with more twists to come, it suggests that a deal is not dead yet. With that in mind, supporters will undoubtedly be intrigued with the glimmer of hope that’s still left in any potential move for the Spanish coach.

With the Magpies already six points adrift of safety after ten games, with zero wins and six losses in the top-flight as it stands. Graeme Jones has been the caretaker manager for two games since Steve Bruce’s departure and picked up one point, from a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace, in that time.

As a result, there is a lack of cohesion and belief on the pitch and that appears to be the case off the field as well as Newcastle struggle to get a deal for Emery over the line. However, with his continental pedigree and experience of spending big with PSG in mind, eventually hiring him would no doubt have supporters over the moon.

Hopefully, PIF are able to strike a balance and work things out, whether that be convincing Emery to make the switch or by securing another top manager to come in and steady the ship. They then have the January transfer window to flex their financial muscle to bolster the playing squad in order to help them avoid relegation. At the moment, this is a particularly intriguing set of events. How it ends is anyone’s guess but the Toon Army will surely be lusting after Emery.

Disclaimer: Since time of publishing, Emery has since confirmed he will be remaining at Villarreal.
