Newcastle United Plans To Bring In Top Players Around the World


Newcastle United acquisition by Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, on behalf of the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF) turn the club into one of the richest football clubs in the world. It is known that the wealth of Saudi Arabia PIF is around 320 billion dollars, passing through the wealth of Manchester City owners, Sheikh Mansour, and Juventus, which is owned by Agnelli’s family.


With that fresh money, it is believed that the English Premier League’s (EPL) club will make a massive purchase on the upcoming transfer window. Some of the top players around the world are reported to have entered the club’s shortlist. According to The South African, one of the best players, Lionel Messi, is included in Newcastle’s shortlist. This rumor emerges due to Messi’s unsettled at his new club, Paris Saint Germain (PSG). The severity of the French media coverage is thought to have broken the concentration of the megastar. The strength of the funds owned by Newcastle is believed to be more than enough to bring in the player with the six Ballon D’or.


Other than Messi, several media also reported that Italian and Juventus youth star, Chiesa, is included in the shortlist. Based on the Transfermarkt website, Juventus’s forward is worth 70 million euros. Other players such as Timo Werner (Chelsea), Franck Kessie (AC Milan), Lingard (Manchester United), Sterling (Manchester City), Kepa Arrizabalaga (Chelsea), and two other Juventus players, Ramsey and Matthijs de Ligt, are also included to the club’s shortlist.


It is interesting to see the new challenger in the EPL competition known to the world is always tight from season to season.
