IT WASN’T ME

Soccer 360 - - Premier League -

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.
