Starting with an easy one, against which club did Shelvey make his Newcastle debut?

A report claims that Paris Saint-Germain have joined a growing list of clubs interested in the Frenchman, which also includes a few of England’s top six sides.

The piece states that PSG know the 23-year-old from his time with Nice but that they have been impressed with how he has improved this season.

This news has annoyed many Newcastle fans, who hope that the club can keep hold of Saint-Maximin.

Do you think Saint-Maximin will end up at PSG?

No, not a chnace

Newcastle are in the middle of a takeover by Amanda Staveley’s Saudi-backed consortium, with Saudi Arabia and Qatar currently involved in geopolitical conflict.

With Qatar Sports Investments owning PSG, many Newcastle fans are hoping that the takeover will go through so that they won’t sell the Frenchman to the Ligue 1 giants.

Saint-Maximin has earned an average rating of 7.32/10 in the Premier League this season (as per WhoScored), and he has scored four goals and provided seven assists in all competitions, according to Transfermarkt.

He has impressed during his first season in England, so it is no wonder that the likes of PSG are interested.

However, the Frenchman’s contract at St. James’ Park does not expire until the summer of 2025, and Steve Bruce has previously insisted that he will not be leaving.

So, even though PSG might be interested, it seems unlikely that Newcastle would be willing to sell him.

Meanwhile, if the takeover goes through, it would probably be even more unlikely that Saint-Maximin would end up at PSG due to the tensions between Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
