So, if this happens, we've got one of the best managers in the world and a billionaire Arab who wants to challenge his Man City-owning cousin ?

Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan.

Sheikh Khaled is an Emirati
He wears a Arab hat,

He watched the premier league and said, give me some of that.

He wanted Rafa Benitez and the famous black and white

and when we win the Champions League, we’ll sing this song all night...

From the Telegraph...

"sources close to those talks have reacted with scepticism to claims Al Nehayan has beat them to it, with two well-placed figures dismissing claims Ashley has sold the club as “bullshit” and “complete bollocks.”

Confused

RE: SOLD.. ????

Ashley was in the middle east a few weeks ago, Abu Dhabi i think it was. He has paid club bonuses 2 weeks early. Everyones relative silence on this is deafening, so I believe this is a genuine attempt to sell/buy. I take all media stories with a pinch of salt, as we all know a "club insider," or "sources close to Ashley" etc are all made up shite to keep us reading the papers, Twitter etc.

We'll see. But I'll try not top get my hopes up.

Its in the Mail report on it.

They seem to think the sticking point is how closely related Sheikh Khaled Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Sheikh Mansour are

'Infatuation'. That has been the word used to describe the Bin Zayed Group's admiration for Liverpool - the club Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nahyan dreamt of owning.

Midhat Kudwai, the managing director who signed off Bin Zayed's letter to the Chronicle , which confirmed the group's interest in Newcastle United , is a fervent supporter. Someone who fancied himself having a role in a new era at Anfield.

For a variety of reasons, it did not happen. The group's pursuit last year has been well-documented - proof of funds was the issue as they attempted to put a £2bn package together - but this was not the first time Sheikh Khaled showed an interest.

A source close to PCP Partners has claimed the Bin Zayed Group approached them in 2016 about making a joint-bid for Liverpool but 'they couldn't provide proof of funds'.

Clearly, this is a long-held interest and it is only in recent times that Sheikh Khaled has turned his attention elsewhere and seen the potential of Newcastle at a much cheaper price.

While fans understand why the £2bn takeover attempt failed with Liverpool, similar questions have arisen when it comes to Sheikh Khaled following through and putting money on the table with the Magpies.

The intentions of his camp are not in doubt - they want to take over a Premier League club with great tradition - but just as Peter Kenyon wrote a letter with Newcastle's blessing to confirm his interest, the Bin Zayed Group have done likewise with a written statement.

Now, they have to put their money where their mouth is - and that is the elephant in the room. Mystery surrounds Sheikh Khaled's exact wealth and a Sheikh Mansour style spending spree is fanciful in any event.

Sheikh Khaled's exact relationship with the Man City owner is curious, too. The reality is Sheikh Khaled is a distant relative but Bin Zayed Group did not initially play down a more direct association with one of the world's wealthiest men.

A source with knowledge of the situation in the Middle East, who has previously been contacted by the Bin Zayed Group, claims Sheikh Khaled 'definitely does not have the kind of money the press is touting about'.

Initial giddiness - a Newcastle player's representative went as far to say his client 'will sign a new contract and they will make a great team' on Monday - has given way to caution on Tyneside.

Newcastle fans have been here before and do not want to be let down. It is up to Sheikh Khaled to prove he is what he says. A man to take the Magpies forward.
