Newcastle United have been searching for a top-class striker all summer long and finally, it has been official that they have signed one. This is a striker that perfectly fits the profile that Eddie Howe has been targeting.
They have signed none other than the Swedish sensation and Real Sociedad forward Alexander Isak. But this deal wasn’t done so smoothly as this saga went on for a number of weeks because of the reluctance of the La Liga side to sell their star man.
Alexander Isak Contract details
However, this deal wasn’t cheap as well for Newcastle as according to widespread reports in the English media, the Premier League side has signed the striker on a deal which is a total package of 75 Million Euros in which the 70 million is fixed and the remaining 5 Million are variables in the deal.
The 22-year-old forward will be the club’s record signing and this deal has massively been beneficial for Sociedad because apart from the transfer fee, they’ll also receive 10% of any future sale of Isak. And now that Newcastle have signed Alexander they”ll drop the idea of signing their other leading target of the Watford striker Joel Pedro.
Eddie Howe has now the opportunity to unleash the potential of the Swedish striker and try to make him one of the best players in the world. Isak also has the opportunity to create a legacy at the Premier League side cause with the new owners they are building a strong team and he could be the heart of the team. All in all, it would be interesting to see if Isak can live up to the expectations that he has created.
