Abraham set for Newcastle loan switch

United boss Rafael Benítez reportedly travelled to speak to Abraham directly this week on the Spaniard's own wedding anniversary to persuade the former Bristol City man to join him for the 2017-2018 season.

But, according to United Kingdom based tabloid, the Daily Mail, Magpies boss Rafa Benitez will win the race thanks to his relationship with Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo.

Manchester City have also been in touch with the 34-year-old, who has 12 months left on his current deal but is set to quit Serie A after two seasons.

U.S. rock stars Foo Fighters have surprised fans with the release of their first new music since 2015. The track begins softly with a gently strummed guitar over Dave Grohl's subdued vocals.

Leicester and Brighton were also keen on Abraham, but Newcastle have won the race, according to the Daily Mail.

The deal is now expected to be completed as early as this weekend. The Englishman really has the potential to become a future Chelsea first teamer and a season-long loan deal for Newcastle could turn out to be a brilliant bit of business.

The report claims that Benitez even went to St George's Park on his wedding anniversary to convince Abraham to make the switch to Newcastle.
