SOLD.. ????

MIKE ASHLEY has agreed to sell Newcastle for £350million to the cousin of Manchester City’s Arab owner Sheikh Mansour.

SunSport understands contracts have been signed and submitted to the Premier League between Ashley and Dubai-based billionaire Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan

That should cheer the Mackems up..

" No Comment " is a good sign, in the past it would have been denied straight away...

RE: SOLD.. ????

Yeah and the fact it's already apparently a done deal with paperwork submitted and not the usual interested parties looking to make an offer, make this feel different

Could explain while Rafa's contract talks have been dragged out

A word of caution here. Press Association reported last year that the reported Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan offer for Liverpool “did not get past the vetting stage because it was deemed neither credible nor worthy of being put to the ownership

RE: SOLD.. ????

Here’s some grim news for anyone who fancies a quiet life. Newcastle’s slow-burning takeover saga could be about to conclude, with the Dubai-based billionaire Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan reportedly set to be on the verge of releasing them from their Mike Ashley-shaped yoke. He is a half-brother of the Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour, and Newcastle are yet to deny that a deal is afoot, offering nothing more than a “no comment”. Just remember to log out of Twitter, and perhaps all of the internet, when we are all discussing their duopoly at the top of the league in five years’ time.

Love the last line

Will believe it when it's all actually announced. Suspect its a diversionary tactic for Rafa deal not being done

A few years ago there was a novelty song about Tillkaratne Dilshan, so anything is possible.

Morning! My policy on here is to refrain from weighing in unless I’ve got something useful/interesting/factual to add. On #Nufc takeover, the club won’t comment, the Premier League haven’t commented. What I do know, however, is that Ashley has been in sale talks for a while now.

This is the time - as it was back in Nov / Dec - for a deal to happen, because it allows a buyer to influence that one vital area (aside from who the manager is), which is player trading. A number of parties have been (& still are) talking & some have got further than others.

At this stage, it’s worth sprinkling a bit of salt on everything, if only because this is such a familiar path. And there is plenty of cynicism about this new report from those in & around the sale process. “It’s a word beginning with ‘b’,” one says. That word isn’t ‘brilliant’.

Other potential bidders believe that Ashley is serious about selling this time - albeit his mind has been elsewhere recently because of Debenhams fiasco - which is mildly reassuring but, again, we’ve heard that before. I think that’s about it for now. Cheers.

One other thing: a personal suspicion (albeit with a bit of circumstantial evidence), is that Ashley’s Debenhams losses (£150m?) & takeover interest are connected to delay in Benítez contract resolution, one way or the other, but those talks are still ongoing.

Talks will carry on until the transfer window closes and then Ashley will call the Arabs tyre kickers.
