Newcastle must convince David de Gea's wife Edurne Garcia for deal to go through after Saudi Pro League snub

Newcastle United will have to convince not only David de Gea, but his wife regarding a possible move to St James' Park.

The Magpies are in desperate need of reinforcements within the goalkeeper position, after Nick Pope was forced off through injury during the recent 1-0 win against Manchester United.

The England international joins a growing list of players sidelined for Newcastle boss Eddie Howe, who is already without key players such as Dan Burn, Joe Willock, Callum Wilson and Sven Botman.

However, while most transfer hinge on just persuading the player themselves to join in terms of wages and other factors, Newcastle must also look to persuade the wife of De Gea regarding a possible move to the club.

The Spanish pop-star was said to have no interest in moving to the Middle East, with her 32-year-old husband now biding his time until the right opportunity presents itself for his family. Whether or not this is on Tyneside, remains to be seen.

According to The Telegraph, De Gea himself is thought to be open to a Premier League return, although Edurne is keen for her husband and baby daughter to remain in Spain.

In the absence of De Gea's potential arrival, Newcastle will have to depend on back-up keeper Martin Dúbravka, who came on to replace Pope during the win against Erik ten Hag's side.
