The reports are for a £300 million bid which is currently being negotiated.

Who is buying Newcastle United?

The deal for the purchase of Newcastle United is headed by Amanda Staveley, Saudi Arabia’s Private Investment Fund and the Reuben Brothers. Once agreed the final details will be passed to the Premier League whom can then authorise the sale.  The Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia has total estimated assets of £256billion meaning they would instantly be one of the richest owned teams in the world.
