“An amazing signing” – Newcastle United urged to sign former Liverpool star

Posted by

Former Liverpool full-back Glen Johnson believes Liverpool should not consider signing Sadio Mane back.

Reports in Germany last week claimed that Bayern Munich are looking to offload Sadio Mane who joined the Bundesliga club from Liverpool last summer. The move has not worked out for him and the German side are now looking to convince him to move on.

The report also added that Bayern Munich are hoping that Newcastle will make an offer for him considering they have qualified for the Champions League and have the financial resources to pay his high wages.

While there may have been suggestions that Liverpool should make a move for him but Glen Johnson believes the Reds should not sign him back.

He told Neu (via The Shields Gazette) that Liverpool are a completely different side to the one Mane left and that he may not be able to replicate his previous performances for them in the newly set up Jurgen Klopp team.

Rather, he suggested that Newcastle should make a move for the Senegalese international who would be an “amazing” signing for them. He claimed that the Magpies now have the Champions League pull to attract top tier players and that they should make the most of it.

He said:

“[Jurgen] Klopp should not look at Mane again. He is a fantastic player, but he would be coming back to a completely different team to the one that he left.

“He was great for Liverpool at the time, but it does not mean that he would be great for them now. I don’t think they should go for him.”

“For Newcastle though, it would be huge. Being in the Champions League will help them attract even better players, and Mane would be an amazing signing.

“They need to make the most of it this year as if they do not finish in the top four next year, they will still have Champions League quality players with them. That will therefore help them bounce back.”

  1. There is no chance whatsoever that Newcastle will sign Mane. He doesn’t meet a single one of their criteria.
