Newcastle United: Fans applaud key takeover information about PIF and MBS - Newcastle United

Loads of Newcastle United fans are applauding key takeover information that has circulated on Twitter which could help the Tyneside club’s cause.

There has been controversy over piracy issues in Saudi Arabia with regards to showing Premier League games, mainly from their broadcasts on beoutQ and Arabsat.

question mark

Which of the following players was never signed by Kevin Keegan for the Toon?

There is an argument that the top flight could demonstrate this as a close link to the country’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) or crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), and therefore this could have a negative effect on whether England’s highest division approves of the deal or not.

However, Arabsat is not solely a Saudi company, as countries like the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have part ownership. Sheik Mansour, who is the owner of Manchester City, is the Deputy Prime Minister of the UAE, and so it is hard to see how the Premier League can fail the bid but allow City to continue as they are, as per the tweet.

Are you bothered by the piracy issues?

These members of the Toon faithful applauded the analysis:
