Andy Mattioli

Carles Pérez was rumored to be close to a move to English side Newcastle United.

The young Spaniard seemed to want increased minutes of playing time and thus a sale looked like an inevitable solution for the 23-year-old winger.

According to Il Tempo, however, the move to Newcastle is off the table now, with Roma wanting to keep Pérez for the duration of the upcoming campaign.

Newcastle were reportedly close to offering €13 million for the Spaniard. However, negotiations never took off with the capital club making it clear that Mourinho wants to include Pérez in his plans going forward.
