The Chronicle has received an update from the Bin Zayed Group today.
And before we get to that there was further evidence earlier today that a takeover of Newcastle is in plain sight with the Chronicle reported earlier today that another application has been made to take SJH Investments Ltd off the register of St. James’ Park Holdings at Companies House.
This is more housekeeping to get United ready for a takeover.
And now ChronicleLive is just reporting they have received a message from the Bin Zayed Group today – “all good” with the acquisition is what they received and that everything is progressing well.
This coincides with the end of the Eid holiday in Dubai – and it’s very possible the group will issue new updates in the coming week.
The Chronicle again says there is a lot of doubt about the takeover, but what is happening over the last couple of weeks are the things that happen when an acquisition is being executed.
Not sure what more we can say about that other than Mike Ashley has said nothing about what’s happening with the takeover or with Rafa’s new contract.
And once again the absent and silent owner has created more confusion and chaos at Newcastle in yet another transfer window.
This may be the biggest mess he has created in his 12 years at Newcastle – as we pointed out this morning.
Hopefully, we will get more (good) news on the takeover next week.
This mystery takeover by Sheikh Khaled continues to take place in plain sight.
