IT WASN’T ME
Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley has revealed that he is in talks to sell the club. The news, if true, will be welcomed by many fans who are hoping Rafa Benitez will be handed a hefty transfer budget to strengthen the squad and help fight off relegation. However, given the timing of this news, a number of fans are skeptical and feel it could just be an excuse to not spend money in the January transfer market. Nonetheless, there are reports that there are at least two bidders who have proven to be serious about buying the club, both of whom wish to remain anonymous in order to get the deal done. Mike Ashley has set an asking price of more than £300 million.
