Some more outlandish transfer claims have emerged ahead of a potential Newcastle United takeover tonight.
The news – which must be taken with a pinch of salt – comes from France, with an ‘exclusive’ from Foot Mercato claiming that the Saudis have identified THREE ‘dream’ signings once their £300m arrival at St James’ Park.
This adds to the list of big names being linked with exciting yet unlikely moves to Tyneside should a takeover go through, however I don’t think anyone will be getting too carried away yet.
With the deal not yet official and us having no idea who they’re planning to have as their long-term manager, it’s tough to know how top targets will have been identified.
That said, it’s worth stating that Roman Abramovich made his own signings at Chelsea following a big takeover – regardless of managerial uncertainty.
