Newcastle owner Ashley wants Benitez commitment after delivering Almiron

Newcastle United are set to break their transfer record by signing Paraguay midfielder Miguel Almiron from Major League Soccer side Atlanta United, according to British media reports. 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.

The 24-year-old Paraguayan attacking midfielder has moved to St James' Park after agreeing a five-year contract.

Almiron departs Atlanta after two scintillating seasons, during which the Paraguayan global notched 21 goals and 28 assists in 62 appearances while leading Atlanta to an MLS Cup triumph in just their second season in the league.

Almiron has established himself as one of the best players in MLS, having been included in the All-Star XI and Best XI in 2017 and 2018.

Almiron joins the Premier League side for a club-record fee of $27million after a successful two-year stint with Atlanta United, where he played an instrumental role in last season's MLS Cup victory. We have someone who can score goals and give assists.
