Newcastle Fans Flock To Twitter On Fantastic News Of Potential Sale

Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter upon hearing the news that Amanda Staveley has officially bid around £300M for the club.

The news coming through from Sky Sports (Keith Downey) and locally in the Chronicle (Lee Ryder) is that the two sides are talking – and that has to be a good sign that some deal is possible.

While Mike Ashley is almost certain to turn down the first bid, surely a deal can be negotiated in the range of  £340M?

It’s looking good that a deal can be agreed and even before the end of the week according to sources familiar with the ongoing discussions.

Here are some typical tweets – with the very last one simply outstanding.

This is really good ….

    Key is that Mike Ashley is willing to negotiate & wants a sale, he is just unhappy with terms/structure/figures of initial PCP offer. Time to negotiate & find a middle ground. #NUFC

    jesper from last night

    The deal for the property has to be closed and cleared funds in the sellers bank by midday 22nd December…that I do know. If he misses that deadline them my mate as underbidder will do the deal on the same day.

    I also know from Ashleys perspective he wants the money from the sale of the toon cleared and in his bank by the 15th December…had that confirmed from a third party as well.

    That’s all easy done…they’ve got just over three weeks to finalise the instalments and advertising bit…the deal is 90% done and MA will make sure it gets done.

    Luke Edwards from the Telegraph.

    My information is that the bid from AS is well short of MAs asking price and there is a lot of suspicion as to why it has been leaked out.

    Old Posada might still be right about the Stalking Horse.

    Why want a relegation clause.
    If they are rich enough they have money to spend, a top manager and a transfer window coming up.
    Surely they would be able to make their own luck.

    Staged payments.
    Leveraged buy out. Bad news.

    i see the Conspiracy theorists are hard at work this morning
    i do understand the natural apprehension regarding any deal involving Ashley but it time to give shire a break
    he’s given nothing but 100% solid information for weeks long before the press got wind of it and folk are still trying to undermine him at every opportunity
    if you don’t like it /believe it fine but let the rest of us enjoy the moment as they have been few and far between for a very long time

    From a supply and demand perspective, the thing that has always puzzled me is that because there are only 20 Premiership Clubs in the most valuable and watched league in the world and almost all of them are not for sale why therefore isn’t there more prospective buyers as £300 million is not a lot to pay if you are a wealthy individual, consortium or state.

    Putting it into perspective, someone recently paid $450 million for Leonardo Da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi.

    PCP’S first offer was supposed to be less than 200 mill??
    I don’t like Ashley but that’s a bit cheeky isn’t it?
