It seems that Lucas Vázquez will not have many minutes this season, and many teams are interested in his services. In his back to the Premier League, after just one season in the Championship, Newcastle want to make a complete squad with the aim of maintaining many years in the best British League. Rafa Benítez is currently the manager of The Magpies and he wants to sign Lucas Vázquez because he can give you a lot of alternatives in the attack, being player with a lot of versatility. The former Real Madrid coach already has four Spanish players in his squad (Mikel Merino, Jesús Gámez, Manquillo and Ayoze Pérez) and he wants to sig the fifth one. Benítez’s plan is to sign more players who are born in Spain and according to English newspapers Mirror, Newcastle will do everything possible to sign the Galician player.
Rafa Benítez knows very good Lucas Vázquez because they coincide in his stage at Madrid. In fact, he was the coach who requested Lucas return after his great performance at Espanyol, where he played a complete season, being a usual player in the starting 11. However, Lucas has played very good games at Real Madrid, being a very important player, but who seems that he needs mores minutes. The amount of players in the midfield and in the attack has prevented him to have a certain continuity in the squad. In fact, he was not included in Zidane’s list in the Champions League final.
Newcastle want to take advantage of this situation and they will try to sign him in the current transfer market. There is no doubt that the arrival of Kylian Mbappé (or not) to Real Madrid will be crucial in this transfer because if the French young player signs with Los Blancos, Lucas Vázquez will have even less minutes than before.
