Newcastle United have been approached by Chinese investors according to ‘breaking news’ on Monday night.
Sky Sports have the exclusive and say that this is ‘real’ interest.
It is some time now since we have seen any media claims of interest in somebody buying Newcastle United and/or Mike Ashley wanting to sell.
Sky Sports are insisting that this is genuine interest and that Mike Ashley is ‘considering all options.
Having bought the club simply as a business, the only guarantee was that Ashley would one day sell it.
With that likely to happen as out of he blue as when he bought it in 2007, who knows whether this is a genuine possibility as per the Sky Sports exclusive.
With the 10 year mark just having passed us by, most Newcastle supporters will feel that the owner has been here a lot longer than anybody imagined.
Having returned to the Premier League and with increased TV cash deals now in play, maybe the optimum time to sell?
