Lots of Newcastle United fans have taken to to vent their anger at the latest transfer claim to emerge regarding the Tyneside club. 

According to True Faith, Allan Saint-Maximin is the subject of a £40m bid from fellow Premier League side Everton this summer.

Would you accept £50m for ASM?





However, the report also suggests Newcastle are holding out for an offer in the region of £50m for their star man.

Saint-Maximin signed for the Magpies in the summer of 2019 from OGC Nice for a fee believed to be in the region of £16.2m on a six-year deal.

Fans had their say when the claim was shared on by NUFC 360.

What exactly did these Newcastle fans have to say?

“Riot if true”

“Friday ruined even more when will the pain end”
“The club is actually dead”
“Selling ASM and signing Steve Bruce on an extended three-year deal just two weeks before the season starts when we’ve signed no one. Peak Newcastle United.”
“This may be the worst morning I’ve had”
“Sell ASM and I’m done. Said it for years but recent events are the final nails in the coffin. Bruce, Ashley and no ASM is too sickening to stomach…”
“@asaintmaximin Please don’t go. Please.”

The Frenchman has shone on the pitch since arriving at Newcastle, having scored seven times and provided 11 assists since arriving on Tyneside (via Transfermarkt).

Saint-Maximin has become a fan favourite at St. James’ Park since he has arrived and it is apparent would be furious to see the Frenchman depart this summer.
