The Newcastle Evening Chronicle understands that Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford will come under serious consideration once United confirm Steve McClaren as the clubs’ new Head Coach.
Bamford played under McClaren during 2013/14 season at Derby and despite an unhappy loan spell which returned just 2-goals in 23 appearances the England under-21 striker is said to be open to a switch North as opportunities at Stamford Bridge look limited. Bamford impressed in the Championship with Middlesboro last season and were it not for his troublesome ankle issue the youngster may have fired Boro into the BPL. However the move would come at a cost – around $17 million – representing a large investment for a player unproven at the top level who would be expected to deliver quickly. Newcastle will prioritise a striker(s) and with Charlie Austin seemingly out of reach United have been forced to target more realistic options in order to bolster their squad and avoid a repeat performance of last seasons’ capitulation.
