Miguel Almiron will be staying at the ‘best club in the world’ Newcastle United this summer.
That’s according to the Paraguayan’s agent Daniel Campos, who has certainly changed his tune since Eddie Howe arrived as head coach.
During Steve Bruce’s two-year reign, Campos regularly spoke about the likelihood of Almiron leaving St James’ Park amid interest from clubs in Spain and Italy.
However, in recent interviews, Campos believes now Almiron will stay at Newcastle, whose owners have ambitions of challenging Europe’s elite.
Not too long ago was Almiron discussed as a potential summer departure among the Magpies fanbase having barely featured under Howe.
But the 28-year-old got his opportunity before the season was out - starting eight of the remaining games, which included a goal of the season strike against Crystal Palace.
‘He is at the best club in the world’
“He is at the best club in the world, Campos told Versus Radio. “He is happy with prominence; I don’t see any possibility of change now,
Speaking to the same station last month, Campos said similar, revealing Almiron has a staggering £60million release.
That, of course, is very, very unlikely to be activated/
Campos said: “There are always rumours about players in the transfer market, however, we don’t have any definitive interest shown by any club.
“Usually, the clubs negotiate within themselves but don’t contact the agent. He has a release clause of £60 million.
“He is happy to stay at the club and most importantly, he is playing.”
Almiron scored two goals for Paraguay on Friday afternoon during their 2-2 friendly draw with South Korea.
