Newcastle United Set To Break Transfer Record After 12 Years

Newcastle United Set To Break Transfer Record After 12 Years

There's nothing in fashion in football as much as breaking your own transfer fee record. Joining the latest craze are Newcastle United who are back in the Premier League for next season.

Yesterday Liverpool broke their transfer record by wrapping up a near £40 million deal for Mohamed Salah, according to Roma anyway, finally taking Andy Carroll off the top spot.

The Reds are actually rumoured to be potentially breaking that record on another two occasions this summer if they sign Virgil van Dijk and Naby Keita.
