TWO consortiums now eyeing £300m takeover at NUFC should Saudi deal collapse – The Times

The Times’ Chief Football Writer Henry Winter has revealed that TWO American groups are eyeing up a move for us should the Saudi-backed takeover fall through.

Some may fear this is an ominous sign that another saga awaits, however, he insists that the current bid is at a ‘well-advanced stage’, insinuating that it may be past the point of no return – which is excellent news!

Here’s what he had to say, stating that both ‘interested’ American parties have the required funds to do a £300m deal – but may not get the chance to make a move should the Saudis pass the final takeover hurdle via Premier League approval:

So, it appears there are several parties interested in buying Newcastle right now, making potential buyers like London buses all of a sudden!

That said, the Saudi-backed buyers are said to have been granted ‘exclusivity’ on the deal until mid-May, meaning the Americans couldn’t try and hijack the current deal on the table even if they wanted to right now.

Interesting claims from Winter, but he also states that ‘everybody is expecting’ a Saudi takeover to go through – despite complaints over ethics and broadcast deals, with rival clubs also said to be fearful of the threat a ‘well-funded’ and ‘newly ambitious’ NUFC could pose:

Knowing our luck and the recent agendas against NUFC, the Saudi deal will fall through, we’ll get bought out by the American’s, and you’ll have an army of journalists on social media blaming us for the assassination of JFK and Iraq War!

  1. It has been going on too long for it to happen. As for other irons in the fire? If it is true are we set for another long wait. Feeling down.


  2. “Knowing our luck and the recent agendas against NUFC”

    Hello children – can we spell Paranoia?

    Only a Newcastle fan would complain because there are only THRE buyers lined up.

    Suppose we should be happy – it’s only a couple of weeks ago that you were still spouting things like “we’ve been here before” and “he’s lied in the past”.

    What are you going to do when Ashley sells up Charlie? You’ll have nothing to write about!


  3. I am concerned about Americas human rights record, racism, mass shootings……………….


  4. Fair play to H Winter pointing out that the other premier League clubs are just self interested in preventing the Toon from repeating the feats of 1996 to 2004 and muscling in on their private party!!! Except this time if it happens we will be taking over the party in coming years….⚡
