Newcastle United were unlucky to plunder Bayern Munich’s roster.
The Premier League club have reportedly withdrawn Niklas Süle and Kingsley Coman. Late on Thursday we learned that Newcastle United had made an effort to get Süle, but Sport Bild’s Christian Falk and Tobi Altschäffl said on their Bayern Insider podcast that Newcastle United also played for Coman.
By duo Sport Bild (as captured by the Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), Newcastle United wanted Coman, but the club’s poor position in the Premier League was seen as a deterrent to Coman.
Newcastle United currently sit 19th in the Premier League table and are at major risk of relegation – despite the mountains of money the club’s new owner is willing to pour into the organisation.
With Bayern Munich, there was clearly a sense of security, not only in the club’s position within the Bundesliga, but also for the team’s continued Champions League prospects in the years to come.
