As the January transfer window opens, Newcastle transfer news on the possible signing of a forward player is coming thick and fast. According to Madrid Universal, Newcastle United are willing to pay £50m for Brahim Diaz who is currently out of favour at Real Madrid. In 2019, Brahim Diaz moved from Manchester City to Real Madrid for an initial fee of around £15m. Since joining Real Madrid, his career has gone downhill. After spending three consecutive loan spells at AC Milan, he is currently getting game time at Madrid due to an injury to Vinicius Junior. However, once the Brazilian comes back, Diaz will once again struggle for game time. Thus, it will open the door for Newcastle United and Eddie Howe to sign the Spanish forward if they are willing to pay his transfer fee of £50m. It will be interesting to see how things unfold with Brahim Diaz.
