“If the people want me to buy NUFC, let me know!’ – Takeover teaser arrives from US legend – Watch here

Speaking on Tyneside over the weekend, Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has hinted he’d be interested in buying Newcastle United.

The 43-year-old has been in the north-east over the past few days as part of his ‘an evening with’ tour at the 02 City Hall, and gave an intriguing response to reports linking him with an interest in the club.

Here’s what the former boxing champ had to say when asked the following question by local promoted at Newcastle Legends MD Steve Wraith:

Q: “Last time you were in Newcastle, it was reported in the media that you were very, very interested in buying Newcastle United, the football club?

‘In the US we call it soccer, but the Newcastle football team is an unbelievable team. A hell of a team’

‘If the people want me to buy the Newcastle team, let me know!’ 

He visited Newcastle in 2017 – meeting sections of the NUFC squad as a result – and was bizarrely linked with a potential takeover in May 2018, but I don’t think anyone will be holding their breath on this one!

I wonder what next!
