Newcastle fail in approach for Roma star

Premier League side Newcastle have not succeeded in their approach to sign Roma winger Carles Perez this summer.

Il Tempo have reported about potential departures from Roma this summer, saying that while the Magpies were interested in the Spaniard, the operation has failed to take off now.

The Magpies were willing to spend about €15 million to sign the ex-Barcelona man, the report says. But it looks like Perez is now destined to stay at the Stadio Olimpico this summer.

Interest from Newcastle was widely reported but it looks like the move may not happen now. The Spaniard did feature quite often in the friendlies for Jose Mourinho’s side.
