Lots of Newcastle United fans have reacted to a report from the Daily Mirror that states that the Tyneside club are set to have a further £200 million injected for extra investment in club improvements and players once a takeover is completed.
As per the article, Mike Ashley could sell the Magpies within the next few days to the Saudi-funded consortium led by Amanda Staveley, whom could be ready to make a series of three-yearly injections into the Toon to try and build them up into Champions League challengers.
The reported figure available is £200 million, but it could be more if NUFC are challenging at high levels. The money would likely be spent on new signings, but also on a revamp of the club’s training ground, academy and internal workings to allow it to generate further income.
The Mirror also writes about whether Steve Bruce would stay in the job or potentially be replaced by Rafa Benitez, and what calibre of player they could possibly buy.
These supporters reacted to the news on Twitter:
Sorry Steve Bruce but if it’s true about the £200m that won’t be you who will be getting it it will either be Rafa Benitez, Poch or Allegri

Nobody knows what the size of the cash injection is going to be. This is pure guess work and I’d rather have abit communication from them first and foremost. Building the club up again will happen given time.

I hope someone has checked that Bruce doesn’t have a £200m payoff if he is released from his contract 🤣
