Newcastle United break transfer record for Miguel Almiron

Miguel Almiron

The specific fee was not released by the clubs, though it's been heavily reported to be $27 million and ATL confirmed that the amount sets a new MLS record for an outgoing transfer. MLS sold Alphonso Davies of the Vancouver Whitecaps to Bayern Munich for just over $10 million a year ago, and this deal almost triples it. Additionally, Almiron is now the most expensive signing in Newcastle history, and has signed a five-and-a-half-year deal with the English Premier League side. Atlanta United supporters won't be happy about losing their playmaker, but they will definitely cheer for a major part of their 2018 MLS Cup title.

Since joining prior to the club's inaugural season in 2017, Almirón was a two-time MLS Best XI selection, a two-time MLS All-Star, the 2017 Newcomer of the Year and a two-time finalist for the Landon Donovan MVP award.

"We have someone who can score goals and give assists", said the Newcastle boss, who plans to play Almiron just behind Salomon Rondon. "I know that the people here really love football and that the fans are really behind the team". We wish him nothing but the best in his career.

"This is also a landmark day for Atlanta United", said Eales.

Anthony Davis tells Pelicans he won't re-sign
The only way Boston could land Davis before the February 7 trade deadline is if it deals Irving. According ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski , Davis has asked the New Orleans Pelicans to trade him.

The fee involved is believed to be around £21million, meaning the Toon have broken their transfer record for the first time since signing Michael Owen from Real Madrid for £16million back in 2005. He scored 13 goals this past season for Atlanta.

Almiron arrived in MLS from Argentine club Lanus for over $7 million in December 2016 and has dominated the league from the start.

Both Barreca and Almiron could be in line for their debuts in Newcastle's match against Tottenham in Saturday's early match.

Newcastle climbed to 14th in the league table following their impressive win over Manchester City on Tuesday in the Premier League.
