Do you think that Allan Saint-Maximin is in the know regarding this takeover?
YES, HE KNOWS
NO, HE DOESN'T KNOW
I absolutely adore you @asaintmaximin

That is massive for a player to like a Tweet about a potential new owner though!

He liked the tweet. Legit. Must say that’s very interesting

What do we think?
Following Richardson’s tweet, @alekhbariyatv, which is a “Saudi state news channel” as reported by talkSPORT, also posted a tweet announcing that the Premier League have approved Newcastle United’s takeover.
It may be fair to say that it appears as though this takeover could really be imminent, considering all of this Twitter activity and the fact that a Newcastle player, in Saint-Maximin, has even given an indication that the takeover could be on its way.
With all of this in mind, it’s not surprising that Newcastle fans have been excited by this news, especially when you consider that this takeover could see them become the Premier League’s richest club, as explained by The Daily Mail.
