A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a post from NUFC 360, which has claimed that Leicester City are going to sign former target Boubakary Soumare in the summer.
Soumare rejected the chance to join Newcastle in January 2020 despite the club using Allan Saint-Maximin in an attempt to convince Soumare, but he didn’t want to join, and now it looks like he will be moving to Leicester.
This has drawn the attention of these Toon fans who are not surprised by this news and the failure to sign Soumare.
“Really good player. Shame ASM couldn’t sell him on the paddling pool and wheelie bin ice baths at the Newcastle training ground!”
“The one we showed our amazing training facilities to and he turned us down, class stuff. Prime Newcastle United.”
“Couldn’t get him over the line. Never heard that before.”
Do you think that Soumare would ever have come to Newcastle?
No, not a chance
Yes, we could have got him
However, this one looks to be a player that is going to slip away, and this news continued to draw in Newcastle fans who had their say.
“That’s a steal”
“He’s exactly what we need, source – my FM save.”
It will be interesting to see if Soumare does join the Foxes, but even if he doesn’t, it looks like the Toon missed their chance to sign the Frenchman.
