Vital Things Record Signing Miguel Almiron Will Bring To Newcastle United

Reports: Atlanta United, Newcastle Agree on Miguel Almiron Transfer

"I think it is a great responsibility, something lovely for me, and I will try to offer the best I can to repay the trust the club put in me".

Almiron, 24, has signed for a fee around £20 million ($26m) in a move that surpasses the £16m Newcastle paid for Michael Owen in 2005.

The Paraguay global, whose terms are due to run until the summer of 2024, arrives at St James' Park from Major League Soccer side Atlanta United.

With Monaco's Antonio Barreca also joining Newcastle on loan with a view to a £7m permanent move, Almiron's signing rounds off one of the best weeks of Benitez' time in the North East.

"When you look at the way Newcastle want to play under Rafa Benitez, he is ideal".

Almiron will be the 15th South American to play for Newcastle in the Premier League era.




"The issue will be how quickly he can make the transition from MLS to the Premier League".

"We were following Miguel Almiron for a while and we saw a player with some pace in attack who can play behind the striker", Benitez said.

Given the arrival of Almiron, you'd expect that Murphy was only going to have fallen even further down the pecking order, and so there's no real space for him in the squad at present.

Rafa Benitez is now back in the market for Samaris as frustration grows over Mike Ashley's lack of spending on Tyneside. He had 12 goals and 14 assists in 32 matches in 2018, when he made $2.297 million, according to the MLS Players Association salary database. Now, the Daily Mail reports the Magpies are chasing Monaco left-back Antonio Barreca.

Whilst many clubs look to add extra star quality via signings such as Rooney, Lampard, Beckham and Ibrahimovic.
