Newcastle United: Saudi consortium deals fresh blow to potential takeover

Newcastle United: Saudi consortium deals fresh blow to potential takeover - Newcastle United News

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) group looking to buy Newcastle United have dealt a fresh blow to the chances of a takeover going through.

As per The Mirror, the KSA consortium has reportedly ‘turned its attentions’ to Inter Milan and is ‘working on’ a deal with the current Serie A league leaders.

Newcastle takeover blow

The news that the group is turning their attentions elsewhere suggests that they are starting to lose interest in a takeover at St James’ Park.

Is the KSA takeover of Newcastle over?

Yes

Yes

No

No

At the moment, there has been no clear pathway made for the KSA’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) to come back onto the table, and it is vital that this happens if the original bid has any chance of coming back into fruition.

There is also the pending arbitration case between Newcastle and the Premier League, which may produce a negative result for the former.
