A few weeks ago there were rumors circulating that Newcastle United had interest in Bayern Munch defender Niklas Süle.

While that noise deafened a bit, the volume just got cranked right back up per Sport Bild’s Christian Falk. According to Falk, Süle — who has been rumored to want a move to England — is mutually interested in a transfer to the newly rich English club.

Given their new status as a potential European power, Süle is now said to be considering a move to The Magpies:

Süle is in the midst of a fantastic campaign for Bayern Munch, but his contract ends in 2022. The defender is big, fast, physical, and technically-skilled — a perfect profile for a modern day center-back.

While Newcastle United is certainly not going to be the only club interested in Süle, the big man’s potential departure from Bayern Munich would represent a big failure in planning. To let such a valuable asset leave for free would be a big loss to the team — on the field and in the club’s bank account.
