Competing with Chelsea for a player in the transfer market is not easy for a club like Newcastle United who were playing in the Championship last season, but it seems that the Magpies could sign Willy Caballero this summer..
According to a recent report in The London Evening Standard, Caballero is on the verge of joining Chelsea, but the goalkeeper’s agent has suggested that the 35-year-old could switch to Newcastle or Brighton.
Caballero will become a free agent at the end of the month when his current contract with Manchester City expires.
“We have some offers from England, he wants to stay in England," Adrian Faija told Goal.com.
"Newcastle is cold but pretty and the beaches in Brighton are beautiful as well and easily accessible from London.
"There isn't an offer from Boca. To analyse it, first, we need an offer. It needs be real first [before we consider a move to Buenos Aires]."
Faija’s comments are encouraging for Newcastle, but it is hard to see Caballero join Rafael Benitez's side if he has an offer from Chelsea.
Newcastle won automatic promotion from the Championship to the Premier League at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.
