Would the world's richest club take him on the strength of ONE performance?

The 26-year-old has made it no secret that he desires a move away from St. James’ Park this summer but Rafael Benitez slapped a hefty £35m price tag on his midfielder in an attempt to ward off reported interest from the Premier League. But it has emerged that Real Madrid could be willing to negotiate that price.

Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool and Juventus have all been linked with the French international, who impressed during this summer’s European Championships.

The article in The Chronicle suggests that Real Madrid could offer a player in part-exchange for the 26-year-old, although there is no name mentioned.

Sissoko has played over 100 times for Newcastle in the Premiership since joining from Toulouse in January 2013.

His performances ranged from spectacularly game-changing to frustratingly erratic but he feels that he needs to be playing at a higher level than the Championship to further his career.
