Newcastle United are ready to spend big in 2022, but their list of targets in January and the summer could be very different.
Some of the world's biggest names are set to move next year, and arguably the two biggest and most exciting names are Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.
Will Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland move to Newcastle?
But could Newcastle and their millions get involved? Well it is clear not beyond the realms of fantasy and Betfair make them just 12/1 to pull off what would be one of the biggest transfer coups in soccer history. If you think they could persuade Paris Saint-Germain to do a deal in January, then you are looking at 35/1.
If not Mbappe, then could Newcastle be tempted by Erling Haaland? The Norwegian megastar has a clause that allows him to leave in 2022. That means he will be available for less than £80million - a sum which will be well within the grasp of the club's new billionaire owners.
If you believe that they could close a deal for the Borussia Dortmund sensation in January it is 50/1, but that drops to 16/1 in the summer.
Newcastle are being linked with a host of names in January and some of them look a lot more plausible than the likes of Mbappe and Neymar.
