Steve Black has taken to social networking site Twitter to suggest that Newcastle United should sell Moussa Sissoko in the summer transfer window.
The former Newcastle coach believes that the Magpies could get as much as £20 million as transfer fee if they decide to sell the midfielder this summer.
On that performance Sissoko will cost a top club top dollar. That's good for NUFC as it gives Rafa funds as he rebuilds the team.— Steve Black (@B1ackie) July 10, 2016
@failNUFC76 on that performance - which actually reflected the lad's capabilities- and from his play in this tournament around £15-20 mill.— Steve Black (@B1ackie) July 10, 2016
Good day. Lewis Hamilton , Andy Murray & NUFC. Potential fee to spend on players for Rafa after Sissoko performance. Good for player & club.— Steve Black (@B1ackie) July 10, 2016
Black made the comments on Twitter following Sissoko’s performance for France against Portugal in the Euro 2016 final on Sunday evening.
The 26-year-old featured for France in the Euro 2016 final against Portugal at Stade de France in Saint-Denis.
The Newcastle midfielder started the game and played for 110 minutes, as Fernando Santos’s side registered a 1-0 extra-time win.
Sissoko was arguably the best player for France in the Euro 2016 final on Sunday evening.
The former Toulouse midfielder took five shots, had a pass accuracy of 88%, put in two crosses, attempted eight dribbles, won 60% of his tackles, and made one interception and one tackle.
Newcastle will play in the Championship next season after getting relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.
