Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman wants to buy Newcastle and have the best figures.

After the possibility that Lionel Messi did not continue in Barcelona was leaked, many teams, at least those with enough money, dream of having the Argentine crack in their ranks. Is not easy; It is not even a fact that the ‘Flea’ ends his career in a club other than the Catalan one; But there are those who stalk the scorer of the Spanish League to make him a millionaire and tempting offer.

Thus, an Arab sheik wants to enter the Premier League of England, buying one of his most famous clubs and taking Lionel Messi as his main figure. An investment group would buy Newcastle United for 380 million euros with the intention of building a team of stars and returning it to the foreground of a competition with teams from the world’s strongest such as Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal. and Tottenham.

Behind the investor group is Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who, according to journalist Ben Jacobs (covers Middle Eastern football for TalkSports), wants to bring Messi and the best players to put together a team in the magpies.

What seems difficult is for Messi to accept the alleged future offer, since Newcastle did not qualify for any international competition; In addition, there are teams like Inter Italia, which have the weight of their history to attract the ‘Flea’.
