Since November 2021, Newcastle from England became the newest millionaire team in the football world. The club was sold to a public investment fund from Saudi Arabia for 353 million euros, almost 2 billion reais.
The first season under the new ownership was complicated, and the club fought to avoid relegation from the Premier League, but the essential signing of Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimarães helped the team stay up this year.
Newcastle is almost securing qualification for the next edition of the Champions League, a competition that the “Magpies” have not played in for 21 years, but there are still a few rounds to go, and Tottenham is close behind.
Cristiano Ronaldo returns to England
In addition to reaching the final of the League Cup but losing to Manchester United 2-0 at Wembley, the current season is evaluated as a highly successful work.
The club’s owners, excited about the performance, want to invest heavily in the upcoming transfer window. The intention is to transform Newcastle into the seventh big team in England and fight for the Premier League title year after year. It’s worth noting that Al-Nassr, Cristiano Ronaldo’s team, also belongs to the public investment fund, and it was speculated that CR7 would return to England in July.
However, the Portuguese star said he is focused on playing for Al-Nassr. Neymar has also been rumored to join the team, and as he is currently out of form at PSG, it cannot be ruled out. Bruno Guimarães has been essential in Newcastle’s incredible Premier League campaign.
The club’s owners are keen to attract top-quality players to St. James’ Park, and are reportedly willing to spend big to achieve their goals. While the prospect of signing Lukaku may be a long shot, the Magpies are expected to pursue other marquee signings in the coming transfer windows. Overall, Lukaku’s return to Chelsea and Newcastle United’s ambitions in the transfer market are shaping up to be some of the biggest stories of the upcoming Premier League season.
