St James’ Park striker wanted by Ligue 1 big spenders.
Newcastle could suffer the loss of Demba Ba in the summer if Paris Saint-Germain can convince the Senegal international to change clubs again.
The former West Ham man has been the subject of transfer speculation ever since he joined in the summer and started scoring goals for Alan Pardew’s men.
PSG have become a major force in the European transfer market since they were bought by the Qatar Investment Authority and they have earmarked Ba as the man to take them to the Ligue 1 title and lead their ambitious bid for Champions League glory.
Rumours of a buy-out clause have made the forward’s time on Tyneside unstable and a bid of £7m could be enough to tempt Newcastle to part company with the striker.
Ever since Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp revealed that Newcastle United striker Demba Ba had a release clause there has been a steady stream of interest in the Senegal international and a move from PSG to take the Magpies striker to Parc des Princes may well worry the St James’ Park side.
Demba Ba may well be tempted by a move to the city where he was born and grew up in, not least as the presence of Qatari owners means that PSG can now command big money salaries as the Ligue 1 side look to enter the big leagues. It also helps that they have a big name manager in place in the form of Carlo Ancelotti who is hoping to end a near two decade long title drought.
Newcastle United brought in Ba’s international team-mate Papiss Cisse from Freiburg and the striker has proven almost as prolific as the former West Ham man and as a pair they have the chance to push the North-East side ever upwards, but can Alan Pardew keep hold of his star striker?
