Newcastle United sacked Steve Bruce after his 1000th game. This was expected sooner or later because of the new Saudi ownership. Newcastle has confirmed that Graeme Jones will step up temporarily. The fans expect a good manager and an even better sporting project.
The ambitions have risen at Newcastle United ever since the new Saudi ownership. Paulo Fonseca, Unai Emery, Antonio Conte and Roberto Martinez are all on the list. The management job is a desirable one since the new Saudi ownership.
Newcastle United to be a title contending team soon?
The net worth of the current owners (Saudi Public Fund) is estimated at €320 billion. This implies that they can target big players without any hardships. According to Il Bianconero, the Magpies are in pole position to sign Aaron Ramsey. Juventus are ready to let him go because of his high wages but this would be no problem for Newcastle.
The Magpies are also tipped to buy Phillippe Coutinho. FC Barcelona is in debt and suffered losses of around €500 million . Newcastle United can take advantage of the situation and a nearly good offer might convince the Spanish giants. The story of Coutinho with FC Barcelona has not been up to the mark. Struck with injuries, FC Barcelona might let go of the Brazilian.
According to Stretty News, Newcastle is also trying for Anthony Martial. He had a good start at Old Trafford but has gone only downhill since then. Manchester United would not hesitate to let go of him if a good offer comes. According to Caught offside, goalkeeper Nick Pope is also a target for Newcastle United. This comes as a surprise to the fans. As the club is linked to big-name players as well as quality players.
