Barcelona Give Pardew A Headache!
For three months in the summer Alan Pardew tried to - and convinced - Mathieu Debuchy to come to St James' Park. However ...
... Mike Ashley wouldn't up the odds when his French club kept moving the goal posts.
The French international has made the right noises of late - saying he would "jump at the chance" to join Newcastle.
But Debuchy saga took another twist - according to reports this morning.
Suddenly Barcelona are interested in signing the long-term Newcastle target.
The 27-year-old full-back has recently admitted his disappointment that a move to the Magpies from Lille could not be agreed in the summer.
But, let's be honest, he could well be tempted by the Spanish giants.
