How the takeover of Newcastle United will facilitate the biggest raid on English clubs.

Money will no longer be a problem for the Magpies but how to spend it as the take over of Newcastle United by Saudis guarantee them massive fund which has always been a concern under the frugal Mike Ashley. This certainly is exciting moment for the Magpies who have watched with envy the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and others splashed the cash while they resort to loans or bargain buys especially free agent.

The first port of raid after the takeover by Saudi's Public Investment Fund led by Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman which makes Newcastle United one of the world's richest clubs is Manchester United where some players who have struggled to win regular place in their starting line up maybe tempted to move.

For a young prospect like Donny van de Beek, it's been a torment since his move from Ajax last summer having played just 511 minutes in the Premier League last season and has only made three appearances in all competitions this campaign. Even a loan move to Everton could not materialize so the 24-year-old would be happy with the opportunity to join Newcastle. Eric Bailly, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial are other players who have struggles so much as well.
