Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to what their side is going to manage to do this summer in terms of bringing in new players.
The men from St. James’ Park are back in the top flight for the new campaign but there can be no doubt that they’ll need more players before they can think about getting up the table.
With Rafa Benitez in charge, though, there is a real sense that they’ll be able to ruffle some feathers in 2017/18 and now it looks as though they could be about to get another potential boost.
Indeed, in a rather big development, Chronicle Live is claiming that Mike Ashley is open to offers in terms of a potential takeover for the club.
Certainly, with the way modern football is now even the rich owners are looking to sell-up to the mega-rich as the game at the highest levels continues to splurge money.
For sure, then, the Magpies may be tempted to follow the same route to ensure a club of their size gets the maximum out of its potential.
Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
