Benitez remains keen on permanent Kenedy deal

  Benitez remains keen on permanent Kenedy deal Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez is still holding out hope he can secure a permanent deal to sign Kenedy from Chelsea. The Telegraph reports that the Brazilian winger remains firmly in Benitez’s sights after he enjoyed a fruitful loan spell at the club last season. Chelsea are open to selling Kenedy this summer, but interest is likely to mount as other clubs become aware of his availability, something that may price Newcastle out of a deal. Benitez is in the market for a new winger, with Kenedy and Andros Townsend both transfer targets. Scottish international Matt Ritchie is attracting interest from Stoke and Middlesbrough, which could raise enough funds to secure a deal for either of the aforementioned targets. During his time at the club, Kenedy became a hit with the fans at St James’ Park for his pace and trickery on the ball. He went on to play a key role in helping the Magpies avoid relegation back to the Championship.

Newcastle have warned they have no plans to sell winger Matt Ritchie – unless they are made an offer they cannot refuse. However, the club would only be prepared to consider a fee which would represent a significant premium on what they paid for the player and, even then, only if they had a

Chelsea are ready to sell Kenedy to Newcastle this summer, but only if the Magpies agree to insert a buy-back clause into the deal.

The Telegraph report that the Brazilian is keen to complete a permanent move to St James’ Park after a successful loan spell at the club last season.

The two clubs have been in talks over a £20 million deal, but Chelsea want to protect themselves.

The Blues have been well known to add in buy-back clauses into a number of sales recently following the departures of Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku, both of whom have gone on to have successful careers with other English clubs.

After the success that the Belgian duo have enjoyed away from Chelsea, the Blues are keen to ensure the same thing does not happen in the future.

Newcastle player set for move to Porto

  Newcastle player set for move to Porto Newcastle United player Chancel Mbemba is reportedly in Porto to finalise a deal to the Primeira Liga club, according to Sport Witness. Sport Witness are claiming that some Portugal media outlets are saying the Newcastle player is in the country ahead of his proposed move to the Portuguese champions. Mais Futebol claims that the player arrived in Porto last night and that the defender is ready to sign a contract which will run until 2022. Mbemba had reportedly already been in the country two weeks ago to hold talks with Porto, during which time he agreed to a four-year pre-contract. Mbemba had been the subject of strong interest from several other clubs but it appears that Porto have now won the race for his signature. Talks between Porto, Newcastle and the player are said to have rapidly progressed in the past few days, with a deal set to be finalised by the end of the week.

Ultimately, though, money talks and particularly at Newcastle where Benítez faces another summer of running battles with owner Mike Ashley over budget. If the North East outfit receive a big offer – even for one of their key players – they’re likely to sell . But in Ritchie’s case the club would be releasing a

Both Nathan Ake and Nathaniel Chalobah reportedly had buy-back clauses included in the deals that saw them move away from Stamford Bridge on a permanent basis.

Whilst Chelsea may not see a future at Stamford Bridge for Kenedy, they want to protect themselves from any further embarrassment in the transfer market.
