Newcastle United-focused Twitter account @NUFC360 recently posted a tweet sharing the news that Saud bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, who is a Saudi Prince, has followed the Magpies’ official Twitter account.
This news has delighted some Newcastle fans who have been sharing a positive reaction to this development in response to @NUFC360’s post. Prince Saud is King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud’s only child from his second marriage, meaning he is biologically a half-brother to Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
As a result, it may be fair to say that Prince Saud is likely an important man in Saudi Arabia.

Seems legit. He only follows 90 odd, yet has 135k followers. Nufc is the only team/sporting outlet that he follows. He’s practically from Byker in my eyes now.

What do we think?
Sky Sports recently reported that “PCP Capital Partners’ proposed takeover of Newcastle United is nearing completion after the Saudi-backed consortium paid a deposit and exchanged contracts with club owner Mike Ashley”. As per The Daily Mail, this takeover would make Newcastle United “the wealthiest club in the Premier League”. With that in mind, it may be understandable why some Magpies supporters have been excited by this recent Twitter activity from Prince Saud.
