Newcastle United fans are becoming increasingly nervous about the summer transfer window as reports continue to circle around big players being sold.

It's absolutely crazy that the club with the richest backers in the world must sell to buy, but that's the position Financial Fair Play/Profit and Sustainability rules have us in.

The good news is that those rules are set to be changed which could open up Newcastle's spending potential somewhat, although still nowhere near what it could be if the shackles were off.

With so many positions in need of strengthening in the summer, Newcastle could certainly do with a hefty budget, but as things stand, it's not beyond the realms of possibility that Newcastle could be forced to sell a big name player to raise funds for a squad overhaul.


Bruno Guimaraes and Alexander Isak have both stated their desire to stay at Newcastle

Bruno Guimaraes and Alexander Isak are seen as Newcastle's biggest assets and as such are constantly being linked with a big-money move away from St James' Park.

Guimaraes is probably sick of having to state how happy he is at Newcastle, but I'm sure he'll have to tell everyone again before the summer window shuts, and now Alexander Isak is following suit, telling Mark Douglas (via Fabrizio Romano on X) that he loves it at Newcastle and has no interest in moving.

“Of course I want to be here at Newcastle in the future!”.

“I came here for the project, I absolutely love playing here, I really feel at home”.

“I want to finish this season in a good way. I love playing here.”

£100m? Not even close

Reports this week have suggested that Arsenal and Tottenham are lining up £100million bids for one of the Premier League's most lethal finishers.

In our view, £100million is nowhere near enough for a player of Isak's quality. Double it and we'll come to the table to negotiate. That's how highly we rate Isak.

It's great to hear him say he's happy and is invested in the PIF's project. The thought of having to cash in on our biggest players so early into the project is a sickening one, and we hope it's not one that we have to see become a reality.
