Newcastle fans react to the latest update on transfer target Miguel Almiron

Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to react after the Chronicle’s Lee Ryder revealed the latest in the club’s hunt for Paraguay and Atlanta playmaker Miguel Almiron.

The Magpies appeared to have agreed a fee in the region of £20m for the 24-year-old a few weeks ago, but their pursuit of a man who would smash the club’s transfer-record appears to have hit a stumbling block over the player’s wage demands.

Almiron is said to want £100k-a-week to team up with Rafa Benitez at St James Park, which has been described as an ‘astronomical’ amount by club chiefs.

With this kind of situation being the norm on Tyneside with Mike Ashley at the helm, fans of the struggling Premier League side are unsurprised that their beloved club is once again being tight with their cash, especially when a marquee signing is so close to completion.

Let’s take a look at how Newcastle fans reacted to the latest update…
