Newcastle United's new - and extremely rich - owners are apparently not going to play with the financial muscle when the January transfer window opens. The Spanish newspaper Sport believes, at least, to know that the sports management in Newcastle, on the other hand, will wait until next summer before investing heavily in new players.
Thus, however, it is not excluded that the Premier League club will invest in new players when the January transfer window opens. Sport reports that Newcastle, who have plans for a small January investment, have inquired at FC Barcelona, where Clément Lenglet tops Newcastle's wish list.
Although FC Barcelona has had a disastrous start to the new season, Ronald Koeman has apparently not been willing to shake the bag and give the 26-year-old Frenchman a real chance at the Catalan big club. Lenglet's playing time this season has been limited to four La Liga matches - and 95 minutes on the pitch.
