Miguel Almiron to Al-Shabab

Newcastle Star Set for Shock Move to Saudi Arabian Giants: Al-Shabab Seals Deal for Cult Hero!

In a stunning development, Newcastle United‘s fan-favourite, Miguel Almiron, is on the brink of a sensational move to Saudi Pro League club Al-Shabab. Sources reveal an initial agreement has been reached, with the player reportedly open to the exciting venture in the Middle East.

The Magpies, grappling with substantial financial losses, are in dire need of funds to bolster their squad in the January transfer window. With stars like Bruno Guimaraes, Kieran Trippier, and Callum Wilson linked to potential exits, Almiron’s unexpected departure could kickstart Newcastle’s efforts to balance the books.

Approaching his five-year anniversary with the club, Almiron has etched himself into Newcastle’s folklore as a cult hero. Despite a stellar 2022-23 season, contributing to 15 goals, the Paraguayan hasn’t replicated that form this year, making him a potential asset to offload amidst the club’s financial struggles.

The move to Al-Shabab, a six-time Saudi champion, could make financial sense for Newcastle as they navigate the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules. While the idea of a Saudi club acquiring Almiron might raise eyebrows, there are no regulatory obstacles preventing such a transfer.
