Big takeover update after news that Newcastle price has been agreed with Staveley - reports
By Laura O’Leary
A report has surfaced suggesting that Amanda Staveley and her PCP group have agreed to buy Newcastle United for £300 million, though club sources are rejecting the development, according to the Chronicle.
The report, cited by the Chronicle as being from Indonesian outlet Semuanyabola, claimed that the price of £300million had been agreed and that a deal would go through in December – ahead of early estimates.
It also claimed that Benitez would have a huge transfer fund available to him, with the report estimating that between two transfer windows Benitez could spend up to £500 million.
However, the Chronicle claims that a deal is no closer to being done than it was a few weeks ago,
It goes on to say that a bid has yet to be made by Staveley and her PCP partners, which would ruin Mike Ashley’s goal of selling the club by the start of 2018.
