I wouldn't be surprised to see Ibra rock up there for a year....to sort of give them some personality and someone to attract some headlines
Staveley had an interview with Sky Sports News and though she said it'd take time for them to become a top side, she mentioned about reviewing the commercial side of things. Within three years of the 2008 takeover, Manchester City increased their commercial revenue from €21.1M to €138.5M and now it is at the point where their commercial revenue isn't that much lower than ours. The PIF have their fingers in many pies and I expect their commercial revenue will artificially go up at a similar, probably faster rate to what City's did.Why would half these players even want to go to Newcastle?
Taking FFP into account they can spend 200m over 3 years so most of these players are a no go unless they figure out how to increase their money into the club to make sure FFP is ok
The Newcastle fans will be back on the streets protesting if any of that lot are their "statement of intent" signings.From a United perspective surely a cut price Jessie Lingard, Martial or VDB will be enticing to Newcastle with the added message of 'we mean business' by buying a United player.
