Acquisition of Newcastle officially completed
If I could just quote my best friend, a Newcastle fan as fervent as anyone else, when he reacted to the official news directly from the club that Mike Ashley is the owner and St. James’ Park is under new management.
🤝 An investment group led by the Public Investment Fund, and which also includes PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media, has completed the acquisition of 100% of Newcastle United Limited and Newcastle United Football Club Limited from St. James Holdings Limited .
– Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) October 7, 2021
Quotes about the completed acquisition are read as follows (more information can be found in the link directly above);
“All necessary approvals have been obtained from the English Premier League and the acquisition was completed on October 7, 2021.
The Investment Group is made up of long-term patient investors who have full confidence in the future success of the Club. Today’s announcement is the conclusion of a thorough and detailed process that has enabled the Investment Group to reach an agreement that benefits all stakeholders and will put Newcastle United in a good position to pursue a clear long-term strategy. “
But despite the enormous wealth at the disposal of Yasir Al-Rumayyan and the conglomerate responsible for pulling Tyneside out of Ashley’s clutches, the club must adhere to current FFP regulations when it comes to its long-awaited spending spree.
This is good news though, as Newcastle will be allowed to spend over £ 200 million without violating FFP regulations because Ashley has left the club in relatively good shape according to Mail online.
What does that mean for the upcoming shopping excursion for Steve Bruce and company? Here are five players Newcastle could realistically buy in January.
It seems almost inevitable that Norwich will fight again to avoid the fall. Although Newcastle are in a similar position at the moment in the Premier League table, the size of the club in domestic terms will undoubtedly continue to attract players given the salaries the Magpies will be able to spend. One of those players should be Max Aarons.
A modern fullback who has plenty of room for progression, Aarons would make a long-term starting right back that can certainly be seen as an upgrade from both Emil Krafth and Javier Mamquillo. Aarons also meets the requirements of the locals, and since he’s been courted by bigger clubs before, Newcastle should take this opportunity to jump in.
Although Samuel Umtiti has had a considerable fall from grace, the French international will undoubtedly be available in January after Barcelona failed to find a buyer for the former Olympique Lyonnais standout player this summer.
Newcastle could target the center-back as an upgrade from players like Fabian Schär, Ciaran Clark and Federico Fernandez to accompany Jamaal Lascelles at the heart of defense. The downside, of course, would be Umtiti’s track record, but if he could stay healthy, the purchase could be a blow to the club at a cut price.
Donny van de Beek; Newcastle coup
In what would be a huge transfer blow for Newcastle, stabbing the much-appreciated Donny van de Beek would be a really shrewd business.
VdB has had an incredibly difficult life since moving from Ajax to Manchester United in the summer of 2020, with the Dutch international appearing only 20 times in the Premier League. Despite his frustration, Ole Gunnar Solskjær is said to not want to lose the Nijkerkerveen native, but the chance to put on the show in Newcastle’s midfield while still earning hefty salaries – or higher – might be too good of an opportunity to leave. pass; an opportunity to get your career back on track.
A name that many in England may not have heard of before, the Dutch international attacking midfielder is having an outstanding season in the 2021-22 Eredivisie campaign for the Feyenoord giants.
Til, a product of Az Alkmaar’s vaunted youth squad, has spent time in both Russia (with Spartak Moscow) and on loan in the Bundesliga with SC Freiburg before returning home to Feyenoord. He offers goals just behind the main striker, but also a high degree of technical proficiency thanks to his AZ upbringing. He would be ideal for Newcastle boss Steve Bruce in terms of scoring goals that didn’t come from Callum Wilson or Allan Saint-Maximin.
The third Dutchman to make the list and for good reason, Owen Wijndal, another AZ Alkmaar product, would follow Myron Boadu, Calvin Stengs and Teun Koopmeiners out of the AFAS Stadion this season after their international colleagues left for France and Italy. .
Wijndal, like Aarons, is a modern defender who possesses excellent pace, a high degree of technical skill and tactical balance given his ability to thrive both in a possession-based system and to be direct with the ball in the final third. Although the club can spend a huge sum starting in January, being prudent in terms of how it is built, focusing on both immediate improvement and long-term growth, should be vital.
