Chelsea reportedly want £30m for Kenedy, Newcastle United fans not impressed

Kenedy was one of Newcastle United’s standout players in the second half of last season following his loan move to St James’ Park from Chelsea.

The left-sided player, who is equally comfortable as a winger or a full-back, scored two goals and registered two assists in 13 Premier League appearances for the Magpies.

It become clear early on that the North-East outfit were keen on tying the Brazilian down to a permanent deal, but it has not gone smoothly.

Despite the fact that Kenedy’s parent club Chelsea rarely have a use for the 22-year-old given that he has started only five top-flight matches since joining the club in 2015, it seems that they are unwilling to let him go without a fight.
