Newcastle fans react to report that Chelsea will demand £30m for Kenedy this summer

Newcastle fans react to a report that claims they must pay £30m this summer if they want to sign Kenedy permanently from Chelsea.

Newcastle United have been quoted an asking price of £30m if they want to sign Chelsea loanee Kenedy this summer, according to the Chronicle.

They report that means that Rafa Benitez will snub the prospect of a permanent move for the Brazilian, who has not had the same impact during his second loan spell at St James’ Park as he did in his first, last season.

That £30m would eclipse the £21m the Guardian reported Newcastle paid for Miguel Almiron on deadline day this year, breaking a transfer record that had stood since Michael Owen joined the club in 2005.

The odds on Newcastle – whose frugality is well-publicised – breaking their transfer record again for a player who has been unable to force a regular starting place this season and has one year left on his contract look remarkably slim.

Newcastle fans on Twitter do not seem impressed by Chelsea’s demands either, and many of them feel that Kenedy is absolutely not worth that kind of money.

We’ve put together the best of the incredulous reaction from the north east, as the supporters encourage their club to funnel their investment elsewhere this summer…
