Real Sociedad look set to sell their Swedish striker Alexander Isak for a huge profit.
Newcastle will pay the Basques 70 million euros for his services. In this way, two records will be set – the English will break their top transfer achievement for an amount paid for one player, and the Spanish will receive the highest one in their club history.
Diario Vasco adds that the deal will also include various bonuses worth a total of 5 million euros.
So the team from San Sebastian will sell Isaac for much more than they bought him. He arrived at Real in 2019 for 15 million euros from the Borussia (Dortmund) team. The Swedish national will also become the most expensive purchase of the “magpies” since they became the property of the Saudi consortium.
The Swedish AIK youngster, who is the child of Eritrean parents, has 44 goals in 132 games for Sociedad. He is only 22 years old and is tipped to be one of the most talented players in his position in European football.
Isaac also has 37 appearances with 9 goals for Sweden’s national team, having been part of the squad for the European Championship last year.
He has already opened his goal tally this season, scoring against Barcelona last weekend.
