Leeds United dealing with financial superpower in Newcastle with Jack Harrison transfer updates - Sky Sports pundit
We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United...
Paul Robinson has insisted that Leeds United are dealing with a financial “superpower” as Newcastle hunt the signing of Jack Harrison this summer.
The ex-Whites goalkeeper has admitted that if the Whites do sell the winger, they need to do it as soon as possible to give them more time to sign a replacement.
It comes after Foot Mercato reported a £33million bid had been rejected with Leeds said to be holding out for at least £40million if they were to sell.
“Historically in this window, they haven’t sold their players for top prices,” he exclusively told MOT Leeds News.
“They’ve undersold Kalvin Phillips, and they’ve undersold Raphinha, so if you go on those two deals, Leeds won’t hold out.
“You’d like to think they will because they are dealing with a club who is now a financial superpower, who can pay that type of money, so you wouldn’t want to see another player being undersold in this window. If the deal is right for Harrison then money talks, but they have to do it sooner rather than later so the money can go back into the team.”
Andrea Radrizzani sat down for an interview this week to break any kind of silence and answered some massive questions regarding the club and squad.
Thankfully, he shut down all chances of anyone, never mind just Newcastle signing Harrison this summer, with the winger simply not for sale at any price.
£40million would be a huge profit on Harrison, but with Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha already being sold, we cannot afford to open the back door to another of our main starters.
Newcastle may be a financial superpower, but we are not interested in that – time to look elsewhere.
