Newcastle United have invested in this winter transfer market. The new owners have fulfilled the expectations from the last few months and they have spent a total of 102,1M€. These signs can be enough to secure the stay in the Premier League.

Kieran Trippier was the first one to come after surprisingly leaving Atlético de Madrid. To change a Champions League and current LaLiga winner team for another one that is fighting to avoid relegation is something we do not see everyday. It is clear that his personal reasons and the potential of Newcastle were key factors.

Chris Wood was the next one in a very curious movement as well: Burnley’s star striker joining a direct opponent for relegation. Surprises of life, but you know, money can do anything.

Trippier has added technical quality to the XI of Eddie Howe in a specific position that really required attention. Furthermore, Wood is a luxury alternative to the usual strikers from the English team, apart from substituting Callum Wilson. A pure ‘9’ that is used to earn points by himself.

Newcastle strengthened the defense with Matt Targett and Dan Burn. The first one is a short term solution for the left back, where the club also had problems (he has just come on loan until June). On the other hand, Burn is a very liked profile by his coach: left foot central defender with consistency on his game and able to play the ball from backwards.

“I’m buzzing to be here. I never thought I’d be in this position so to be a Newcastle player and to be around St. James’ Park, it’s something I’ve dreamt of since I was a kid, said Dan, who played for Newcastle until the age of 11.

The bomb sign has been Bruno Guimarães (42,1M€). The Brazilian comes from Olympique Lyon and, at the age of 24, is one of the best midfielders in Europe, apart from having a huge potential. His performing in the Champions League impacted the world and then he has established himself as a truly all terrain.

According to Squawka Football, only two midfielders out of the top five European leagues have created more than 35 scoring chances, made more than 35 tackles and completed more than 35 dribbling in the current season: Bernardo Silva and Guimarães himself.

This way, this is the first big sign from the new ownership, who look forward to invest in the future at the same time as saving the present. We can’t forget that Newcastle were a step away from completing the addition of Hugo Ekitike (19 years old) for 25M€.

The ‘Magpies’ have taken the lead compared to their opponents with these five additions and with this squad they should be able to avoid relegation. However, names do not win games and Howe will have to settle the new players to the team as soon as possible.
