Newcastle United set to sell Miguel Almiron, want £30 million

Newcastle United are all set to sell their Paraguayan winger Miguel Almiron for £30 million in the upcoming transfer window.

According to a report from Football Insider, Miguel Almiron could part ways with Newcastle United in the upcoming summer window. The former Atlanta winger is no longer an important part of their first team and they are ready to sanction his departure if any club meets their asking price of £30 million.

Almiron made the move to the Magpies back in 2019 from Major League Soccer. He was a then-club record transfer for the American outfit as they received £21 million for him.

While he has been an integral part of their first team over the years, the 30-year-old has gone down the pecking order in the recent past. He has been rotated quite often in the recent weeks.

Newcastle ready to sanction Miguel Almiron’s departure

While his contract runs until the summer of 2026, the Magpies are considering cashing in on him amidst interest from clubs in the Middle East. There was interest in him from that part of the world during the winter but no club was willing to meet Newcastle’s demands.

Saudi Arabian clubs remain interested in him despite the high asking price. Given the kind of financial strength they have, Newcastle will be hoping that they end up meeting their demands. Meanwhile, they have already informed the player that is free to leave the club.

The English have started planning for an important transfer window as they look to reinforce their squad in the summer. While Eddie Howe will be handed a decent budget, they are looking to offload players to raise funds which could be reinvested into the squad.

Almiron is a player they are willing to sanction the departure of. His transfer could help them make a significant profit on a rotation player. The 30-year-old will not be the only sale at Newcastle this season, they will also look to offload a few of their homegrown players to help them balance their books.

Departure of homegrown players will be registered as pure profit helping them with Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules.
