‘Think i’d die and go to heaven’ – Newcastle fans erupt as club eye £70k-a-week star



Rafa Benitez’s multi-million pound squad are looking likely to guide Newcastle United instantly back to the Premier League following last season’s disappointing relegation.

Newcastle are currently top of the Sky Bet Championship, and despite failing to record a victory in their last three league outings, are a point ahead of Brighton and Hove Albion and hold a seven-point advantage over Huddersfield Town, leaving them on the brink of automatic promotion with eight-fixtures of the season remaining.

Whilst promotion to the Premier League is not a certainty, especially with the Championship’s unpredictability, Newcastle already seem to be planning for life back in the top-flight.

Manchester Untied and England left-back, Luke Shaw, was linked with a move to St James’ Park earlier this month, and the latest player to be named on Benitez’s transfer list is Swansea’s Gylfi Sigurdsson, who currently earns £70k-a-week at the Swans.

Benitez is reportedly keen on a £15m deal for the Iceland international, should the Magpies gain promotion to the Premier League.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the Newcastle and Sigurdsson links…
