Do you think that Allan Saint-Maximin will be able to compete in the UEFA Champions League with Newcastle one day?
YES, I THINK SO
NO, I DON'T THINK SO
This can happen if the takeover happens

According to WhoScored, Saint-Maximin has been Newcastle United’s best player in the Premier League this season, earning a team-high average overall rating of 7.32/10 from his 22 appearances in England’s top flight.
With that in mind, it may be understandable why Toon fans may want to keep Saint-Maximin at the club, which is how it appears these Newcastle supporters feel.
