Newcastle open to selling Allan Saint-Maximin

A worrying Newcastle United transfer claim has emerged regarding Allan Saint-Maximin…

What’s the talk?

According to The Daily Mail‘s Craig Hope, PIF are exploring the possibility of cashing in on the French winger in the summer transfer window.

The report claims that no clubs are willing to pay his £50m valuation and that the Magpies will need to lower their asking price in order to find a buyer.

Hope has also suggested that Saint-Maximin has remained in the team in spite of recent poor performances in order to keep him in the shop window, although that may not be the case.

First major disaster for PIF

PIF are heading for their first major disaster on Tyneside after this report, for multiple reasons.

Should Newcastle sell Saint-Maximin?

No, are you mad?!

No, are you mad?!

Yep, time to go!

Yep, time to go!

Firstly, selling the winger will surely upset Newcastle fans, as he has been a bright spark throughout the last few seasons at St James’ Park. He is an exciting player to watch and he gets supporters off their seats with his exceptional dribbling ability.

In the Premier League this season, Saint-Maximin has completed a whopping 4.4 dribbles per game, which shows that he routinely finds a way past opposition players with the ball at his feet. He has not been consistent with his end product in the final third but has chipped in with five goals and four assists, and this shows that he has the potential to be a match-winner for the Magpies.

January signings Kieran Trippier, Bruno Guimaraes and Dan Burn are the only Newcastle players with a higher average SofaScore rating than the Frenchman in 2021/22. This means that the winger has the highest rating if you exclude players who have not been at St James’ Park for the entire campaign, highlighting how important he has been for the club.

Who cost Newcastle the most?

Therefore, supporters would be fuming if the club opt to cash in on Saint-Maximin this summer, and this is why it would be a disaster for PIF to allow the ex-Nice dynamo to depart.

It would also be an error on their part if they decide to lower their £50m valuation to facilitate a transfer. They must hold firm and either cash in on him for the value they deem him to hold, or else keep hold of him. Whilst the fans may be frustrated with a move for the winger regardless, they will be doubly furious with the owners if they do so for less than they originally wanted.
