Newcastle fans react to bizarre Joselu report

Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to perhaps the most bizarre story of the summer, which claims Jose Mourinho wants Joselu to stay on Tyneside if he is to replace Rafael Benitez.

Newcastle are yet to reveal any progress in finding a new manager to replace Benitez, but reports in recent weeks have claimed Mourinho is a candidate.

The former Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid boss is the fourth-favourite for the job, with some bookmakers offering odds as low as 6/1, and now a report from Spain claims he is already plotting out what to do with the Magpies’ squad.

According to El Gol Digital, Joselu is nearing an exit from the club to join Spanish side Alaves, but Mourinho is likewise nearing a switch to Tyneside, and could cancel the striker’s move if he arrives.

Mourinho handed Joselu his first-team debut with Real Madrid during their time at the Bernabeu, but the 29 year-old only played one more time for the senior side after that.

Newcastle fans have been left baffled by the claim that one of the world’s most reputable coaches would want a player with seven goals in 52 games at St. James’ Park, and you can take a look at some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
