After a saga that lasted a year and a half and when it was completely forgotten that the Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, wants to shop in the Premier League, Newcastle has become one of the richest clubs on the planet.
The Magpies are preparing serious investments, but the new owners do not plan to rush but want to gradually raise the club. Thus, in the January transfer window, they will practically only patch the holes in the playing staff and tailor a team capable of surviving in the elite without any problems.
He will leave big investments for the summer. According to the British Telegraph, although the new management can allocate around 225,000,000 euros for reinforcements in January, the plan is to spend up to 60,000,000 on changes in the playing staff.
Newcastle will not try to reach the stars overnight, although due to the weak investments of the previous owner Mike Ashley, they could seriously strengthen at the start of the new calendar year and remain within the limits of financial fair play.
The new ownership structure has not yet appointed a sports director, nor an executive director. No decision has been made on who will lead the team from the bench. Today, Steve Bruce played 1,000 matches in his career against Tottenham, and maybe the last one as the coach of the team from St.
James Park. He has a lot of work ahead of the new management of the club and he does not want to rush. They will gradually create a club capable of disrupting the hierarchy in English and then European football.
That way, the new owners won't waste money.
At least not in the first transfer period. They don't even want to be sheep for shearing, aware that clubs around the world will try to extort as much money as possible for the players who will be on the radar of Newcastle.
At the start, the new top Magpie wants to let everyone know that they will not overpay for reinforcements, at least not at the beginning and to a large extent. They will still have to put his hand a little deeper in the pocket of the biggest English and European clubs, in order to convince the top-class players to move to the north of England.
The impression is that the first reinforcement in the new era of the club could be Burnley stopper, James Tarkowski. His contract with Burnley expires at the end of the season, and he could seriously strengthen the backline of Newcastle for acceptable money.
Given the defined budget, it is clear that the Magpies will not bring expensive reinforcements such as Harry Kane, Timo Werner, John Stones ... Players with whom the club from St. James Park is currently connected since the change of ownership took place.
Stories about Lorenzo Insigne could also come true, considering that the Italian will enter the last six months of his contract with Napoli in January. In any case, Newcastle will act wisely and bring only as many reinforcements in January as it takes for the club to gain stability in the Premier League.
