Mike Ashley set to lower Newcastle asking price

Newcastle United fans may finally get what they have wanted from the club for a number of years.

According to a report by the Shields Gazette, Mike Ashley is prepared to lower his asking price for the Magpies in an attempt to sell the club.

The Newcastle owner is thought to be willing to accept an offer in the region of £300million, after having previously wanted offers upwards of £380m.

He had put the club up for sale almost a year ago and it is believed an original bid had been made for the club over the festive period, however, he rejected it and broke off talks with Amanda Staveley in January.

However, as pressure from the club’s fans continues to grow, Ashley appears to be ready to lower his demands and could now look to initiate a sale.

The Verdict:

Newcastle fans will be pleased that the owner will reduce his demands, although many will feel the news is far too late.

The club failed to add significantly during the transfer window this summer and manager Rafa Benitez’s future still remains uncertain as he is in the final year of his contract at St. James’ Park.

However, for any potential buyers, Newcastle will need to improve results on the pitch, as they have not won a game in the Premier League this season.
