We seem to be finding out a lot more about the potential buyers for Newcastle, or at least who they are not, since now Los Angeles Galaxy owner Philip Anschutz has come out denied having any interest in buying the club.
Philip Anschutz – no interest in buying Newcastle United
Anschutz, who is the 31st richest person in America, was reported to be one of the two US-based consortiums looking to buy the famous Premier League club. The other one was reportedly led by Clark Hunt, who has also recently denied any interest in buying Newcastle.
Anschutz’s AEG company issued a statement that confirms that they not in any talks about buying Newcastle.
The statement is as follows:
“Neither AEG nor anyone affiliated with the organisation are in negotiations or are contemplating the purchase of Newcastle United Football Club,”
This doesn’t say we do not have two interested parties, only that we have no idea now who they are.
But we have to start thinking the chances of getting a buyer for the club before the January transfer window are starting to recede, and Ashley should put together a Plan B, in case he cannot sell the club before next summer.
What do you think?
Comments very welcome.
