Newcastle Takeover

Led by the crown prince pictured above who is also the current deputy prime minister of Saudi Arabia, who has his own personal wealth of around £7Billion, the £260Billion of the the PIF is bound to see the NUFC transfer coffers vastly increase in comparison to the Ashley years, along with the competitiveness that seems to run with them and Qatar this might trigger a bit more rivalry with the blue half of Manchester owners.
