6 Likely Targets For Cash-Happy Newscastle After £305m Take Over

Saudi-led Consortium has finally completed the £305m take over of Newcastle United, ending the 14 years reign of Mike Ashley's on Tyneside. After the news of the complete sales emerged in late September 2021, Many big profile players have been touted as potential arrivals at St. James Park considering the enormous cash spree of the new owners who will be keen to make Newcastle United another PSG or Manchester City of recent times. Questions have already been asked whether current magpies boss, Steve Bruce will continue next January, with Antonio Conte reportedly in the news as his replacement.

In this article, SirKinGsEliTe has identified six(6) likely targets for the cash-happy Newcastle United owners, as they sort to make Newcastle United a heavyweight in the European football stage.

#1. Mauro Icardi

Argentine forward, Mauro Icardi remains one of the deadly potent striker in the world but lack of sufficient game times at Paris Saint Germain especially with Lionel Messi's arrival last summer transfer window, may lure the Forward to accepting a switch to Premier league and become a protagonist in the Newcastle United team should the new owners make an offer.

A fellow Argentine in Sergio Aguero, joined Manchester City after the club was taken over by the rich oil moguls from Qatar, in the summer of 2010, and went on become the Club's top Scorer and a legend, a path that will surely delight Mauro Icardi to follow should Newcastle United come calling.

#2. Philippe Coutinho

Brazilian attacking midfielder, Coutinho has endured a frustrating Barcelona career that has been blighted by injuries. In the summer of 2019, he joined Bayern Munich and impressed, winning a treble that include the 2020 UEFA Champions league.

He returned to Barcelona in the summer of 2020 but have struggled to replicate his usually form which is mainly due to injury. Since coming back from Injury this season, he hasn't been afforded the much needed time to regain his sharpness and may be tempted to move on should a suitable offer come from the rich Saudi-led Consortium.

#3. Marcelo

Marcelo's contract with Real Madrid is due to expire next summer, and with David Alaba and Mendy still in their prime age, it is likely Forentino Perez may not offer the Brazilian a new contract.

With a huge project as Newcastle United's new owner, Marcelo may be tempted to join premier league football should the Magpies coming knocking.

#4. Matthijs de ligt

The dutch defender's move to Juventus was motivated to enhance his defensive abilities and learn from the likes of Chiellini and Bonucci, with his agent Mino Raiola likely to listen to offers for the young defender after two years in Turin.

With a project as Newcastle United current take over, De ligt and Mino Raiola may listen to a suitable offer from the Magpies new owner.

#5. Gabriel Martinelli

A technical gifted forward, Gabriel Martinelli has not been given much time to continue his development and that is a situation the player and his representative does not want.

With Mikel Arteta preferring Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe in the right and left flank of the forward line, the chances of Martinelli's becoming a mainstay in Arsenal's starting Eleven may be slim, and may be tempted by the prospect of joining Newcastle United should they table a suitable offer.

#6. Aaron Ramsey

Wales and Juventus midfielder, Aaron Ramsey has endured a mixed career in Turin and has featured sparingly this season under Max Allegri, with reports the ex-Arsenal midfielder is considering his time with the Old Lady.

A move back to Premier league may be on the card, with a suitable offer from Newcastle United more likely to appease the box-to-box midfielder who earns in excess of £250 per week.
