A whole host of Newcastle United fans are furious on Twitter with Fabrizio Romano’s Sven Botman update.

There is no secret that Newcastle have identified Sven Botman as their number-one defensive target this transfer window, having already seen two bids rejected by Lille and the French club seemingly holding out for £45 million.

Will Newcastle sign Botman?





Botman excited fans last week by liking a picture on Instagram of Kieran Trippier in a Newcastle shirt, but Romano has revealed what AC Milan director Frederic Massara has said on the situation surrounding Botman, as they are reportedly the Magpies’ rivals to sign the centre-back.

As per Romano, Massara claimed on Sky: ‘Sven Botman’s an amazing centre back but I think Lille have no intention to sell him in January.’

Romano followed this up by stating that Lille are still insisting that Botman is not for sale and that a loan deal is not an option for any club.

A lot of Newcastle fans are angry on Twitter with this Romano update.

What have these Newcastle fans been saying?

“Sure Fabrizio is a Mackem like”


“Romano is swiftly turning into the angel of doom”


“Time to move on I think.”


“Not happening, is it?”


After yesterdays shambles, #nufc need a minimum of him and four more players if there is any chance of staying up”


“Cheers fab mate crying now”


“Shouldn’t we have known all this and planned for this before January ? Amateurish operation been brought in to deal with transfers some no mark from Celtic no wonder we are struggling.”


“Milan have no money, pathetic club can’t afford him lol. If lille won’t sell they could have rejected the first bid and said he’s not for sale. They didn’t”


If Newcastle managed to persuade Lille to sell their star centre-back this summer, it would see Eddie Howe improve half of his back four within the opening weeks of the transfer window as they look ahead to their relegation clash with Watford this weekend.
