Newcastle told to sign international duo; could cost £1m-a-week to get deal done

Newcastle have been told to go out and sign Welsh international duo Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey this January, who could come with wages of £1m-a-week between them.

Those are the thoughts of former Liverpool and Wales striker Dean Saunders anyway, who told Talksport that Ramsey and Bale would immediately improve the Newcastle team.

Both Ramsey and Bale have been tipped to move on from their respective clubs. Juventus and Real Madrid are open to both leaving, with the pair on huge wages. Ramsey is said to earn around £400k-a-week in Turin, while Bale’s mammoth £600k-a-week salary has been well-documented.

But despite those figures, Saunders believes Newcastle are one of a few clubs who can afford to pay it. And Saunders believes Bale and Ramsey would instantly improve the Magpies.

“If I was Newcastle I’d go and sign both Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey. And I’m not just saying that because they’re Welsh. But they’d definitely improve that team, and they’re available,” Saunders said.

“Money talks. Aaron Ramsey is on 3-400 grand a week. Only about four clubs in the world can pay the wages, and Newcastle are one of them. The problem is getting players in who can improve them. I think Bale would improve them, and Ramsey’s an improvement. They both need to be playing football, and Newcastle can afford the wages.”

There would be an element of risk with these deals for Newcastle. But if they could get both Bale and Ramsey playing their best football, then it could be a game-changer.

Of course, the risks come with their fitness records and the size of the wages. They might take small cuts, but they’ll still be the highest-earners at the club.

However, with the way things are going, PIF and Newcastle might need to take some risks and go for a few big personalities. And in fairness, Ramsey and Bale fit that mold.
