• £21m record signing to make debut against Wolves
• Manager says midfielder has impressed in training
After persuading Mike Ashley to break Newcastle’s transfer record by spending £21m on importing Miguel Almirón from MLS, Rafael Benítez could be forgiven for feeling slightly nervous.
He may be expected to wonder whether the Paraguay and former Atlanta playmaker – in line to make his debut at Wolves on Monday – will vindicate his judgment. Since becoming Newcastle’s owner, Ashley has, after all, been notorious for demanding his money’s worth and took considerable coaxing into smashing a record set by Michael Owen’s £16m move from Real Madrid in 2005.
