‘Same as Dani Alves’: Newcastle want £52m ace tipped for Barcelona
Monaco right-back and reported Newcastle United target Vanderson “has the quality” to play for Barcelona and shares the same raw potential as youngster Dani Alves, former Gremio coach Tiago Nunes has told Sport.
When it comes to generating profit, Monaco is as prolific as anyone.
Aurelien Tchouameni, Sofiane Diop, Fabinho, Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy, Youri Tielemans, Rony Lopes, Thoms Lemar, Anthony Martial, Terence Kongolo, Guido Carrillo and Tiemoue Bakayoko joined the Principality club for a combined fee of around £115 million and left somewhere in the region of £400 million pounds.
And that’s not even mentioning academy graduate Kylian Mbappe.
And just eight months after signing proper right-back Vanderson for just £11m, Monaco could be in line for another big win. Barcelona, Manchester United and Newcastle are already showing interest, according to Sport Les Monasques tempting asking price of £52 million.
Then Vanderson would be worth every penny if he emulates Dani Alves’ trophy-laden magic at Camp Nou.
Could Monaco ace Vanderson be Barcelona’s new Dani Alves?
“Vanderson has the quality (to play for Barcelona),” says Nunes, who coached the 21-year-old at Gremio.
“The comparison with Alves comes to mind because Dani was one of the greats. Dani is a player who has played on the wing, but has also been a midfielder many times. Venderson has the quality and physicality to attack space.
“Because he is direct, he has a lot of power. He scores goals, he has potential. I see the same potential as Dani Alves.”
Newcastle are long-time admirers of Vanderson. The likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Brentford missed out when Monaco completed a bargain deal for one of the game’s most exciting young defenders earlier in the year.
However, it remains to be seen whether Newcastle are willing to shell out a colossal fee for another right-back when they already have Kieran Trippier.
