Alexander Isak became a Newcastle United player.
Alexander Isak underwent medical tests and signed a long-term contract with Newcastle United. According to the media, the cost of the transfer of the Real Sociedad forward will be 65 million euros, plus five million in bonuses. Initially, information about 75 million appeared.
Such money transfer will be the biggest in Newcastle history. It is also the biggest sale in the history of Real Sociedad, and after activating the bonuses, it can also be a record operation involving a football player from Sweden.
22-year-old Isak left Real Sociedad after three years in his colors. The best for him was his mid-season in Spain, during which he scored 17 league goals. In the last one, he only hit the net six times. The Swede started the new game with a goal against Barcelona (1: 4).
– I’m delighted we did. It was a huge, important decision for me, but it is a decision that I am really happy with. Newcastle is a great club with a history that everyone wants to play for. He has amazing fans. They were an important part of why I came here. I believe in the club design. Newcastle plays a very attractive soccer game and I want to be a part of it, said Isak.
The striker is the third new addition to “Magpies” after Sven Botman and Nick Pope. The English club also bought Matt Target, who has been rented so far.
