There is a report in BNN Bloomberg that American entrepreneur Carla DiBello has been involved as an advisor for the Saudi-backed consortium in their talks for a takeover of Newcastle United.
The report cites sources, who wished to remain anonymous, that DiBello is working alongside Amanda Staveley on the deal to acquire Newcastle United. She may even continue on in an advisory role should the takeover be successful.
Carla DiBello– assisting Amanda Stavely with Newcastle takeover?
Requests made for comments to both the Saudi sovereign wealth fund as well as Carla DiBello have as of now gone unanswered. DiBello is also known to be a friend of American celebrity Kim Kardashian West.
The 35-year-old runs a consulting firm called CDB Advisory, which specializes in deals between North American companies with the Middle East.
This story adds little tangible evidence and only cites anonymous sources that DeBello is working alongside Amanda Stavely in her attempt to acquire Newcastle.
However, her involvement is just another unverified claim in this whole Saudi takeover saga. We just don’t know what to make of the entire situation, to be honest.
It seemed very promising when first reported by the Wall Street Journal a few weeks ago. But little has been added since that initial report to give us further hope that this deal will see the light of day.
