Newcastle United Are On The Verge Of Signing Mexican Forward Santiago Muñoz

In a piece of transfer news that will no doubt delight fans of the GOAL! film series, Premier League side Newcastle United have reportedly reached an agreement to sign Mexican striker Santiago Munoz.

I repeat, Newcastle United are on the verge of signing a player called Santiago Munoz. No, not the fictional character who played alongside the great Gavin Harris - but a real-life version.

The highly-rated 18-year-old, who currently plays for Liga MX club Santos Laguna, is set to fulfil his dream of playing in England, according to reports.

In fact, Newcastle has already reached an agreement to sign Munoz, according to ESPN, who claim a full agreement will be reached in the 'next few hours' as an official announcement looms.

In addition to those reports, TUDNMEX reporter Daniel Velasco claims the Mexican forward will join Steve Bruce's side on a one-year loan deal with an option to buy.

Velasco adds: "He will try his luck in European football, and why not, emulating the story of Santiago Muñez in the Goal! saga. The negotiations are in the final stages and it seems a matter of hours before it becomes official."

The El Paso native made a name for himself in his homeland after starring for Mexico in the 2019 FIFA Under-17 World Cup.

Months later, he made his league debut in a 2-1 win over Atlético San Luis and has since scored three senior goals for Club Santos.

Back in February, Newcastle United's official Twitter account sent fans wild when they responded to a tweet about the talented forward.

Now, it genuinely looks like a move is going to happen.
