Javier Manquillo has become Newcastle United’s fourth signing of the summer after completing a move to St. James’ Park from Atlético Madrid for an undisclosed fee.
The 23-year-old defender has signed a three-year contract with the Magpies and has joined up with Rafa Benítez and his new team-mates at the club’s training camp in Ireland.
Newcastle couldn’t resist taking a swipe at their bitter rivals Sunderland in the process.
Javier Manquillo turned out for the Black Cats last season on loan under their former manager David Moyes.
Taking to their official website and social media outlets to officially unveil Manquillo, Newcastle couldn’t resist adding in the cheeky quip: ‘some things are just better in black and white.’
The caption was accompanied with a photo of Manquillo wearing his new club colours, smiling broadly at the camera with thumbs up.
