Newcastle might make seven ‘alternative’ acquisitions, including stars with a purpose to prove.


Newcastle look to rebuild their side following the completed takeover that recently made them the richest club in the world, and here are some alternative signings they could make

Newcastle United have recently become the richest club in the world after Mike Ashley’s persistence paid off, as he received £305million from a Saudi consortium led by British businesswoman Amanda Staveley.

Ruben Neves has emerged as one of the Premier League’s most promising midfielder’s since earning promotion from the Championship with Wolves back in 2018.

The Portugal international has been linked with a move away to some of the Premier League’s ‘big six’ due to his exceptional performances at Molinuex since signing for the club in 2017, but Newcastle could step in and make Neves the driving force in their midfield.

The 24-year-old is only under contract until the summer of 2024, and Newcastle could increase the £50,000-a-week salary that Neves reportedly receives at Wolves, although they. Brinkwire presents summary news.
