Justin Allen of the Sun, who broke the story of the Bin Zayed Group’s potential takeover of Newcastle, still claims that it is progressing.
Justin took to Twitter this morning with this update:

While there is nothing new in this. There is still hope that we will be rid of Mike Ashley at some point. Even if it is taking longer than we can stand.
We also have this tweet from Sky Sports’ Keith Downie:
The one-year deal that sat on Rafa’s table would’ve had us back here again next summer, even in January probably. It was a short term fix. There’s nothing to say at this stage the Spaniard can’t be brought back in the event of a takeover in the future #NUFC

While it is true, that for Newcastle fans it is the hope that kills. We never would have thought that Rafa Benitez would have been the manager under Mike Ashley for three seasons.
That was beyond comprehension when the club was mired in the relegation zone in 2016. But it happened and we are all the better for it.
This takeover may also happen. Let’s just hope it does and that it doesn’t destroy us in the process.
