Newcastle unwilling to pay Salomon Rondon’s release clause, fans react

Newcastle are not willing to pay Salomon Rondon’s £16.5 million buyout clause.

According to Daily Mail, the Magpies value the player at around £12 million.

It will be interesting to see if they can negotiate with WBA and lower their asking price for the 29-year-old forward.

Rondon is currently on loan at Newcastle United and he has had a very good season with them. The Venezuelan has scored 13 goals so far this season for club and country.

Benitez needs a quality number nine and signing Rondon would be a no brainer. However, the club wants to invest in someone with more resale value.

The likes of Joelinton have been linked with Newcastle as well.

Rondon is already a fan favourite at Newcastle and the fans won’t be too happy with Newcastle’s stance. £16.5 million is not a lot of money in this day and age.

The 29-year-old still has a couple of years left at the top level and Newcastle should look to shell out for him.

Here is how the Newcastle fans reacted to the news earlier.
