NOTW reports sale of 12 NUFC players for £12m
British newspaper News of the World is reporting that Newcastle United are set to offload as many as 12 first-team players in a bid to reduce the clubs over-inflated £74 million wage-bill to a more acceptable £30 million.
However, in a hilarious anecdote, the newspaper stipulated that the 12 first-team players, which as been tipped to include Obafemi Martins, Fabricio Coloccini, Sebastien Bassong, and Jonas Gutierrez, will bring in a combined £12 million in transfer revenue.
The figure therefore forecasts a £1 million per player transfer ratio. Toon fans will laugh and tell the editors of the newspaper that they expect that much from the sale of one Sebastien Bassong only.
