There are claims tonight from Kuwait that a deal is under way to buy Newcastle United, a story broken by The Kuwait Times…..
‘Sources at Kuwait’s Arabi Club yesterday said that its Chairman Jamal Al-Kazemi is “seriously thinking of buying the British Newcastle United football club”. They explained that “he has finalized all conditions that enable him to acquire the club by next week”. The actual negotiations with Newcastle owner Mike Ashley will be clear,” they said. Incidentally, Ashley has wanted to sell the club since 2009. He bought the club known as “Magpies” in 2007 for £134.4 million and it is said that he is willing to sell it for less than £80 million’.
Don’t really know what to add but we thought it would be remiss not to put it in front of you.
The price of £80m seems very unrealistic…unless it meant he was gaining that on top of having the debts he is owed by Newcastle United paid back as well.
With Newcastle United never say never about anything.
