Marseille have reportedly told Newcastle that they can have the midfielder for £31 million.
Rafael Benitez’s side are now considering whether to make an offer for the central midfielder.
And Newcastle fans generally appear to feel that Sanson would be a good addition to Benitez’s squad.
I don’t want to sound cynical, but we definitely won’t get this one over the line— David McAndrew (@McAndrewDavid) June 9, 2019
Good player but he costs actual money so I think Mike will look elsewhere— colin oliver (@100Magpie) June 9, 2019
Yes please— B (@JMAG1892) June 9, 2019

Proper player Sanson— Jon Sadler (@JonSadler8) June 10, 2019
Eh. I doubt we'd get him as I dunno how we'd be even in the running with everything going on, but if Rafa says I'd say go for it. He'd get the better out of him than what the Wolly and JC got out of Thauvin or Cabella.— David Vardy (@XVardy1) June 9, 2019
Newcastle are unlikely to move for Sanson any time soon, as they are refusing to make transfers without Benitez’s future secured.
The Spanish boss has just weeks remaining with Newcastle, and any big money transfers are having to wait until the managerial situation is sorted.
If Newcastle were to pay Marseille’s asking price for Sanson he would become their record signing, ahead of Miguel Almiron.
