Newcastle are preparing a move for a respected transfer boss who was previously linked with a move to Manchester United.
Newcastle United are planning to spend big in the January transfer window, and they want the guy who brought Kylian Mbappe to PSG to supervise their business.
Newcastle are reportedly poised to make a move for Antero Henrique, a respected transfer chief who was formerly connected with Manchester United, following the Saudi Arabian investment fund’s takeover.
After the group, lead by financial expert Amanda Staveley, got a £300 million proposal agreed in April 2020, the long-awaited takeover spiraled for another 18 months.
The Magpies were initially turned down because they failed the owners and directors test, but they were able to close the transaction this time.
Toon supporters can now expect a complete makeover of the team, coaching staff, and academy system, with Steve Bruce’s fate likely to be decided within the next 24 hours.
Their new financial backing has made them ten times wealthier than Manchester City, with Staveley admitting that the Premier League title is their long-term goal.
The Saudis are ready to bring in someone to handle their transfer business and are eyeing one of the best in the business, in order to waste as little time as possible.
Former PSG sporting director Antero Henrique has reportedly been approached about a possible post on Tyneside, according to Footmercato.

The 53-year-old is credited with bringing Falcao, James Rodriguez, Alex Sandro, and Pepe to Porto, as well as bringing Kylian Mbappe to Paris.
Henrique is currently unemployed after leaving the Ligue 1 giants at the end of the 2018/19 season.
Previously, the Portuguese transfer magician was linked with a move to the Premier League.
Man United were reportedly interested in employing him as technical director in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first full season in command, according to The Sun.
