Old Trafford boss Louis van Gaal may feel the need to strengthen his attack in view of the poor form displayed by loaned in star Radamel Falcao though perhaps a move for Spanish Under 21 international Perez would be a tad more likely in the summer
The former Tenerife man has swiftly become a fan favourite at St James’ Park, his wholehearted displays going down a storm on the ‘north-east’, and his speedy direct play has certainly scared the life out of most Premier League defences.
Newcastle United paid just £1m for the forward who has netted five goals in 12 Premier League starts, including scoring against top sides Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool.

Magpies owner Mike Ashley has displayed in the past his willingness to cash-in on Newcastle United’s top talents and a good offer may well be considered.
