Steve Bruce.
Steve Bruce.

The Bayern Munich star name-dropped the Magpies when discussing his future at the German giants.

He said: “From a Bavarian village, and having spent his whole career at Bayern, it is hard to imagine Muller playing for anyone else.

“But I’m not fixed to this club. I have a special relationship, I love Bayern before I started playing for them, but when there is a situation where you have to decide maybe to play for a different club it would be no shame and no problem at all. Maybe like with Thiago [Alcântara, now at Liverpool].”

He adds: “I like it. But some cultures… speaking and such, special dialect, I don’t understand everything ah. Newcastle? Ah, I don’t know…”

Ex-Barcelona man wants to replace Steve Bruce at Newcastle United

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is interested in becoming the next Newcastle United boss, according to reports.

It has been said that Van Bronckhorst was ‘very keen’ on becoming Magpies manager in the summer of 2019.

But Mike Ashley opted for Steve Bruce as the man to take the North East club forward.

However, reports suggest that the Dutchman is now interested once again, and will hope if Newcastle part ways with Bruce.

Newcastle United goalkeeper could leave during summer window

Goalkeeper Karl Darlow could end up leaving the club this summer, according to some reports.

The 30-year-old has started 25 Premier League games this campaign.

However, after a good run of form, the Englishman was dropped by Bruce for Martin Dubravka.

The Athletic claim that Darlow is ‘upset’ at losing his place, because he felt he was closing in on an England call-up.

Miguel Almiron unhappy at St James’ Park?

The player spoke to a radio station in his native Paraguay this week.

"I'd like to play on the team that’s fighting for more,” Almiron told ABC Cardinal.

“It's a difficult moment for us,” said the 27-year-old. “We need to be together and calm – and to help the team to stay in the Premier League."
