Another telling sign a £300m Saudi takeover is imminent as reliable NUFC site makes huge claim

This takeover saga has dragged on a little longer than most wanted it to, but there’s been more and more signs emerge over the bank holiday weekend to suggest this really is about to happen – and soon.

Last week, George Caulkin tipped it to be announced this week, a House of Saud site said similar, North-East reporter Ian Murtagh claimed on Friday that Mike Ashley’s 13-year reign was coming to an end and, over the weekend, the BBC’s Dan Roan said the deal ‘will go through’.

To add to all of the above, the reliable NUFC.com – a site that rarely speculates or puts its neck on the line – shared a short but sweet update last night, stating the deal will be ratified and announced before the weekend.

Here’s a snippet from their latest post on Sunday evening:

We understand that the much-heralded purchase of Newcastle United by a consortium comprising the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, Amanda Staveley and the Reuben brothers will be ratified and announced before next weekend.

That will follow the granting of formal approval of the deal by the Premier League – a process that has taken around five weeks, due in part to controversy over the Saudi involvement and efforts to restart the season.

Another reassuring sign that it really is a matter of when, not if, with many on Twitter believing this is another clear indicator that we’ve got nothing to worry about and will hear the news we’ve all been waiting for this week:

As stated above, they were the first to share news of Keegan’s sudden departure during his second stint at St James’ Park and don’t seem to comment on big rumours such as this unless they know it to be a fact.

Get those cans out of the freezer and back in the fridge lads and lasses, it looks like we’ve not got long to wait now!

  1. Until there is some kind of clarification from either side or Amanda Staveley standing in the centre circle with a scarf above her head, This is nothing more than a “Lock-Down” story to keep people interested !

    Why would the supposed buyers be looking at a new manager and players when they haven’t even bought the club yet ?
    I hope I am a mile wrong but can see Ashley walking away with 17 million quid for Mrs Doubtfire’s transfer fund for the summer here !

  3. Just read a latest ******* from the mail. Apparently a legal document has surfaced about the Saudi link to pirate tv broadcasting from beaut.q or some shat along those lines and is now putting more shat in the way of this deal.
    How??? When the Saudis are competing with bein sports for the tv rights for the premier league’s viewing in Saudi Arabia, can they be had over for previous misgivings????
    For me… these guys are trying to put a fee things right in their own camp by buying us and investing in sports tv and movies with their interests in Warner brothers.
    Media and premier league need to see sense and push this through.

  4. It seems that everybody from the U. S. government, to UEFA, la liga, and the Premier league, are in cahoots to rob Newcastle United from any chance of future success.
    Is it so abhorrent to the rest of the world, that we have a decent football club???
