Howe feels the "high-class opposition" will offer insight into the standards of Champions League football and on his two eye-catching recruits added: "The supporters will hopefully fall in love with both players I think. Sandro comes with an incredible reputation and, from what I've seen in the very short time that we've been together, that reputation is there on merit.

Despite playing less minutes in his 2021-22 season (2422) compared to Trippier's 2022-23 season (4100), Livramento was still able to run the England international close in some key areas. With neither man being afraid to go forward, both players scored one goal during their respective campaigns, but Trippier did provide more assists (nine) and more crosses into the penalty area (26) than Livramento, who had one assist and eight crosses into the penalty area.

The 26-year-old was the Magpies' talisman for two seasons before Howe's arrival but found himself on the fringes as Newcastle stormed up the table last year. Despite that, Howe accepts his departure is something the squad will feel.
It's probably a bit high given he had a year left on his contract, but relative to what the Saudis have spent on Fabinho from Liverpool or (Sadio) Mane from Bayern Munich it doesn't seem in anyway outside of the market that the Saudis have created.
