newcastle fan groups urge mike ashley to sell club to consortium led by saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin salman

Newcastle supporters have joined forced to demand Mike Ashley sell the Premier League club to a Saudi-led consortium.Reports emerged last week claiming a consortium led by Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has tabled a £340million for the club. Getty - Contributor 2 Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is unpopular among Magpies supporters Ashley was said to be furious after the details of the potential takeover were leaked to the press.A collective of supporters’ groups, including the Magpie Group and Toon For Change, issued a joint statement amid the takeover speculation.The statement said: “Tony Jimenez, who was reportedly appointed by Mike Ashley in January 2008 to sell Newcastle United, once said: ‘Mike wanted me to sell the club on the basis of my relationships with the Middle East. If he had played his cards right, Mike could have sold Newcastle to Abu Dhabi before they bought Manchester City’.“Fast forward 12 years that have seen a catalogue of disastrous appointments, staggering mismanagement, commercial and sporting stagnation, baffling decisions and two relegations at a club that was playing Champions League football four years prior to Ashley taking over. AFP or licensors 2 Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is heir to the throne of the Saudi Arabia royal family, whose total wealth reportedly amounts to around £1TRILLION “Now, we understand that one of the wealthiest investment groups in football history has made what has been described as an acceptable bid for Newcastle United. Reports suggest the finances are in order, due diligence has been completed and proof of funds has been confirmed.“Amanda Staveley previously brokered the Manchester City deal on behalf of the Abu Dhabi group. The expertise is there. The money is there. The last remaining hurdle is Ashley’s answer.“Mike Ashley has long said that he would step aside once there was somebody that could take our club to the next level. Previous takeover attempts have apparently proved to be a waste of his time.“However, we believe that this time he has a concrete bid, proof of funds is not an issue and there is a willing buyer. If he really does want to sell the club as he has said, he should accept the offer and end this toxic relationship once and for all.LIVE on talkSPORT Check out all the LIVE commentaries coming up on talkSPORT, below...
