According to reports carried out by the Sun, Newcastle United are currently considering a move for Real Madrid attacker Lucas Vazquez.
Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez certainly has a widespread knowledge of Spanish football and he tapped into his contacts recently to acquire the services of Mikel Merino.
Recently it has been claimed that Benitez is looking at Atletico Madrid attacker Angel Correa and now according to Spanish football expert Pete Jenson, the Magpies boss is said to be plotting an ambitious move to sign Lucas Vazquez from Real Madrid.
Speaking about Vazquez’s potential move to Newcastle, Jenson claimed, “I think it’s one of a few [Spaniards] who might turn up at Newcastle. There is overbooking at Real Madrid and Rafa Benitez does know the club very well.
“He has that vast experience of European football and having been recently at Real Madrid, I think not just Spanish players but Madrid players.”
Vazquez has featured prominently for Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane but he is not a first team regular for Los Blancos and a move to Newcastle United to work alongside Benitez could prove to be an enticing prospect.
