He scored six goals in all competitions during the 2017/18 season, laying on three assists for his team-mates as Newcastle United finished tenth in the Premier League.

Ironically, Newcastle's biggest signing of the summer was the £9.5m capture of Yoshinori Muto, though he may not fit into the starting XI once Salomon Rondon's imminent loan move is completed.

Muto, who underwent medical and agreed personal terms with the Magpies last week, has joined the Premier League club on a four-year deal.

"Salomon has been in the Premier League for a while and he knows how demanding it is", Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez said in a club statement. The sale of Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic to recently promoted Fulham for a reported £22 million suggests that the money is there.

Marcus Rashford handed the Man Utd No.10 shirt against Bayern
Since the 20-year-old burst onto the scene in 2015, he has become one of the most highly-rated young players in the world. On a day when runaway champions Manchester City dismantled Chelsea at Wembley, it was not a good sign.


The players have been in talks with owner Mike Ashley during pre-season to agree this year's bonus scheme.

Speaking to reporters (via the Evening Chronicle) after Newcastle's poor 4-0 friendly defeat to Braga, Benitez told of his frustrations at the club heading into the new campaign.

"We did not do things the way we have to".

Now a tough early-season fixture list means it will be hard to muster a good start.

White House tells China to fix trade practices
The 25 percent duty would be applied to the proposed list of $200 billion of Chinese products announced on July 10. So far this year, the trade gap is up more than 7 percent from January-June 2017.


The former Real Madrid and Napoli manager has made no secret of his disappointment at Newcastle's backing of him in the transfer window, having this to say on the state of his squad and what can be done about it. You can see it, you have 52,000 [in the stadium]- you have 300,000 fans - they are very clever, they know what is going and at the same time they know they have to support the team because it is the only way to guarantee the team stay up.

When pushed on if he knew of any deals happening anytime soon, Benitez said: "I have no idea". "I wish you all the best".

"We have to wake up - that's it".
