Los Galacticos

Los Galacticos

Speaking again to Sky Sports, Big Sam all but ruled out whacking the big money on a Real Madrid style Galactico, focusing instead on getting bodies in at the back. The gaffer said:

"Without any reassurances in that area yet, I am confident if they need any convincing, I can convince them that a heavy investment needs to be made in terms of the transfer market. He made a massive, heavy investment in the first place which is hopefully, in the short term and the long term, great news for Newcastle United and for me. We are all hoping we can move in the transfer market and bring some good players to the football club.

I am not talking about the 'galactico' stars that are being mentioned - that is just a nonsense at the moment. We need three or four solid, very, very good defenders from wherever it may be, and we will be a force this year. But we need to get them first. If he wants to give me a little gift after with a galactico, I won't say no.'

A thinly veiled dig at the Ronaldinho link perchance?
