Plenty of Newcastle United fans online have reacted with excitement after Amanda Staveley provided some interesting quotes regarding the club’s transfer ambitions.
When asked about the possibility of signing someone like Kylian Mbappe, Staveley told The Sun: “We are in the market to compete for world-class players.
“We have great ambitions — I hope it’s going to be a game-changer for Newcastle United.
“But if you don’t put the infrastructure around that world-class player and you don’t have a team that can play with him, you’ll get nowhere.”
Though she also spoke about the need to improve training facilities, and her desire to show St. James’ Park a ‘bit more love’.
The quotes were later shared on Twitter and they didn’t take long to catch the eye of many NUFC supporters.
Would Ralf Rangnick be a good appointment for Newcastle?
Here’s what these Newcastle fans said…
“Don’t you just love what you are hearing??”
“I still can’t believe this is all happening man. Reading stuff like this just makes it all even more mental! Keep having to pinch myself.”
As we are currently in between the summer and winter transfer market, it may take some time before Newcastle can flex their new financial muscle.
Once the window opens, however, according to the Mail Online, the Saudi takeover will allow Newcastle United to spend over £200m on their squad while still passing Financial Fair Play regulations.
Still, the fans seem pleased to see some realism shown by Staveley to go alongside all the new ambition.
