Plenty of Newcastle United fans have lauded a claim about the prospective takeover in the North East from Manu Lonjon as he shared some key information on his official Twitter page.
As per the French journalist, he has revealed that from a close source of his, they hope that the deal for the Saudi-led consortium to take over from Mike Ashley at St. James’ Park is imminent and that the official announcement to fully confirm the bid could take place within the next 24 to 48 hours.
Do you believe that the announcement could be made within the next two days?
Indeed, there has been lots of speculation already as to if and when the proposed takeover of the Tyneside club will eventually go through, as there have been a number of stumbling blocks which has meant that the deal has been delayed somewhat.
In addition, there have been loads of different claims from various outlets and journalists as to when exactly the official announcement would be made, but Lonjon believes from his close source that he has finally found the answer.
These members of the Toon faithful lauded his claim on Twitter, and are naturally excited that the club could be on the verge of changing hands:
Manu has been spot on so far, let’s hope he’s right again!! #NUFC
