Remy Won't Sign For Newcastle!

He told the London media on Friday "I will not join Newcastle, I will stay at Queens Park Rangers."

Arsenal could make a move for Remy after Olivier Giroud’s injury, while Chelsea could also move for the player.

Both can pick Remy up for £8.5million.

Bringing to an end the saga that Newcastle could get him back.

Yesterday's article ...

United have offered Loic Remy another chance to be a Toon hero, but only if he changes his contract!

Alan Pardew would like to bring him back to St James’ Park for a second spell, but only if the club pays the same deal that fell flat at Anfield last month.

Remy has in his contract he will sign for any side playing in the Champions League for £8m ... but for Newcastle it would be £16m.

That does not wash with Mike Ashley, and it's hardly surprising.

Apparently today there was fresh interest from Arsenal, who have been rocked by Olivier Giroud’s ankle injury which could keep the striker out of action for the rest of the year.

The Gunners could, like Liverpool, get him for HALF the price Newcastle would have to pay.

Remy’s talks with the Gunners at the start of the summer broke down due to his wage demands ... and if the truth was known, the same thing happened at Liverpool ... although they claim it was a problem with the medical.

Do we want him? He said in July there was no way he would return to Newcastle, so why take a player who wouldn't be happy?

Money is his GOD. He snubbed Newcastle in the first place because QPR agreed to higher wages. Yet when they were relegated they couldn't afford him!

Remy has been playing hard to get with Newcastle all summer, suggesting he wasn't happy with Pardew's bizarre ambition to finish tenth and not aim for European football.

It has been suggested Queens Park Rangers supremo Tony Fernandes drew up the price list that means Newcastle would be asked to cough up twice what Arsenal would pay. But it was Remy himself who did the deal.
