Newcastle United fans have wasted no time in creating a catchy chant for their summer signing, Sandro Tonali, and it has quickly become a fan favorite.
Tonali, who arrived at Newcastle from AC Milan in a club-record £55 million deal, is regarded as the club’s most significant signing of the transfer window thus far.
The 23-year-old midfielder made a name for himself in Italy during his time with Milan, accumulating 130 appearances for the club.
His arrival in the Premier League has generated excitement among Newcastle fans, who have already devised a chant to show their support and appreciation for the talented player.
Sandro Tonali made his debut appearance for Newcastle United on Tuesday in a match against Rangers, which was held as part of Allan McGregor’s testimonial.
Despite being his first game for the club, Tonali has already garnered a significant following among the Newcastle supporters.
The traveling fans at Ibrox Stadium showcased their enthusiasm for the Italian midfielder by creating an epic chant dedicated to their new star player.
The chant undoubtedly adds to the excitement surrounding Tonali’s arrival and highlights his growing popularity among the Magpies’ fanbase.

Newcastle fans sang: “Sandro Tonali, Sandro Tonali! Drinks Moretti, eats Spaghetti, he f**king hates Sunderland!”
Tonali isn’t the only new face at Newcastle this summer as the club have also snapped up 18-year-old Gambia winger Yankuba Minteh.
Newcastle boss Eddie Howe talked up Tonali, but refrained from labelling him as a ‘marquee’ signing.
He said: “Marquee is not necessarily the right word. For me it’s good players and bringing in players who will elevate the group.
“Sandro is one of those players who can elevate everyone around him. He’ll fit in really well to how we play.
“The early signs are very positive. He’s a great lad as well so he’s fit in really well so far. I can’t wait to see him in a Newcastle shirt.”
Newcastle enjoyed a superb campaign last season as they secured Champions League qualification following their fourth-placed finish.
How will Howe’s side fare next season with Tonali on board? Let us know.
