‘Absolutely 0 Chance He Goes’ ‘We Gotta Be Talking £150M’ Newcastle Fans React Following Chelsea Inquiry

Chelsea have “made an enquiry” for Newcastle forward Alexander Isak, according to the Daily Mail.

The English tabloid claim that the Blues are aware that they would have to break the British transfer record in order to secure the Swedish international’s services.

Moises Caicedo’s £115m switch to Stamford Bridge last summer is currently the record but Magpies fans on X say they would demand a lot more than that to sanction his sale:

Newcastle have made it clear that Isak is unavailable

When Arsenal were sniffing around earlier in the year, the Magpies were adamant that they would not allow the player to leave.

The club do have issues with complying with the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability rules but it is expected that others will be sold to balance the books.

It would be a huge blow to Newcastle’s project if they lost their top scorer from last season so you understand their reluctance to let Isak go.

What has Isak said about his future?

The 24-year-old has repeatedly stated that he is not interested in a move away from St James’ Park. Speaking earlier this month, he said:

“I am enjoying myself at Newcastle, and I had the best season in my career – that should not be underestimated. I love everything about the club; the fans, and the city.”

“It (my future) is not something I will speculate about, I have no thoughts on leaving. There has been no talk about it at the club and I have received no information that they could would have to sell me.”

It seems unlikely, therefore, that Isak would push for a move to Chelsea, which will certainly help Newcastle’s cause to keep him.
