3 Things Newcastle Would Do To Their Team Now That It Has Been Acquired By A Saudi Billionaire

It is no longer news that Mike Ashley has sold Newcastle United to Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, Amanda Staveley, and the Reuben brothers. The new owners of Newcastle are extremely rich and it is expected that they will immediately start looking into turning the club into an elite club. This article will focus on 3 changes the new owners of Newcastle United will likely make to the team.

1. Newcastle will probably employ a new manager to replace Steve Bruce:

One of the most likely things the new owners of Newcastle will do is to sack Steve Bruce and employ a top-notch manager who would attract world-class players to the club. Steve Bruce had been under pressure since he took over Newcastle United and the new owners might feel that he does not have the glamour which is needed to take Newcastle to a greater height.

2. Newcastle would invest a huge amount into their team in other to turn it into an elite club:

Another thing that is expected to happen now that Newcastle has been acquired by billionaires is that Newcastle will most likely invest millions of pounds in signing new players. The same transformation was witnessed after Arab billionaires took over Manchester City some few years ago and billions of pounds have been spent on the team since then. Today, Manchester City has become a big team in England and Europe.

3. Ticket prices might increase considering the huge transformation that is expected in Newcastle United:

Another thing that could happen in Newcastle United is that a time will come when ticket prices of the club's matches will increase. If the new owners splash a huge amount of money on the team as we all expect, ticket prices will not remain the same for long. It looks like Newcastle United will look towards turning their team into an elite club and the prices of the club's ticket will also transform.
