    Sounds like Boohoo and the Factories being investigated and uncovered in Leicester.

    Well that’s Newcastle fucked! According to Mac All these 100m players have signed and now they can’t afford them!

    Always looked flimsy. Far too many question marks and the longer it went on the more unlikely it was to go ahead.

    Maybe Ashley wanted to pick the team and still have his seat on Board?? Feel sorry for newcastle fans, Ashley appears to have a firm grip on ownership and intends to keep it that way

    Brian, Ashley may be guilty of a lot of negatives in respect of Newcastle but I can’t see how this deal not happening has got anything to do with him. The Saudis pulled out due to all the circumstances surrounding it which we are all aware of and seemingly because of the uncertainty in football due to Cov19.

    It was always likely to be a difficult takeover and the longer it went on with no PL approval the more likely it was to falter.

    The Saudis also refused to confirm who would actually own the club and I think that’s a fair reason to not approve it. What were they hiding?

    Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed that the club broke their transfer record following the capture of Victor Osimhen from Lille.

    The Nigeria international cost 70 million euros and if the wages and bonuses over the duration of his contract are included, the fee could rise to 100 million euros.

    Before Osimhen smashed the transfer record, Napoli’s most expensive acquisition was Gonzalo Higuaín, who cost €39 million when he was signed from Real Madrid in July 2013.

    Speaking with Sky Sport Italia on the signing of Osimhen, Laurentiis stated : “Gattuso and Giuntoli both wanted him, and they convinced me to part with €70m.

    “With bonuses it can rise to €80m, and if you consider the wages which rise over the course of the deal overall this is a €100m+ deal.

    “He is not a player we are expecting to be ready right away. He is not a 25-30 goal scorer, but he should bring an extra element of great play to the team, scoring and providing for his teammates”.

    Aurelio De Laurentiis confirmed that Osimhen will wear Napoli’s number 9 shirt for the upcoming season.
