Newcastle United Premier League Club is about to change hands. According to reports, negotiations between owner Mike Ashley and a Saudi-controlled buyer consortium are about to close. that the potential new owners want to stimulate the club with fresh money and want to get prominent names to Newcastle.
As “ESPN” wants to know, trainer Steve Bruce should first of all believe in the Magpies and be replaced by a top coach. Accordingly, four candidates are on the new owners’wish list. Besides Mauricio Pochettino, Massimiliano Allegri and Rafael Benitez, the consortium is also said to have targeted BVB coach Lucien Favre
Since both Benitez (Dalian Yifang) and Favre have even longer term contracts with their current employers, the two are probably considered to be more of a third choice. Absolute candidate is former Tottenham coach Pochettino, who has not taken a new job since his dismissal last November and has meanwhile also been treated as a hot candidate at the coaching posts at FC Bavaria.
With Pochettino’s radiance, the new owners want to draw big names to Newcastle. According to the report we announced the official announcement of the takeover of the club by the consortium in the near future.
