Real Madrid’s Baptista eyes Newcastle move

He said: “I want the chance in pre-season to show our new coach Bernd Schuster I should be a part of his plans. If things do not work out here I will have to look at other options in Spain and England.

“Newcastle is a big club but before I consider a move I need to know about my future with Real.

“I believe I showed at Arsenal last season that I can play in England, score goals and make goals.

“I’m sure my future will be sorted out in the next few weeks.”
