Takeover Talk: Yankee Dollars

Takeover Talk: Yankee Dollars

Despite Ashley`s insistence that the club is now off the market, the Sunday Mirror today quotes unnamed sources from a US consortium who are interested in bidding £180m, dependent on where the club ends up next season.

The price looks set to plummet dramatically (naturally) should Joe Kinnear fail to keep the club in the top flight with a quite frankly ridiculous £134m stated as the bid for a Championship Newcastle. Overall it carries even less credibility than the various rumours of Chinese and Arabian interest.
