Looks like Newcastle’s Saudi ownership has made its first step towards bringing the toon army towards the top of the Premier League.
It’s been reported by Le10Sport writer Alexis Bernard that Mauricio Pochettino is very close to becoming the new Newcastle United manager.
This would clearly symbolise new found ambition as an amazing project seems to be taking shape at the club going forward. There have also been reports of a colossal contract offer sent to the representatives of Kalidou Koulibaly to entice him towards the Premier League.
Pochettino was on a shortlist of potential managers to take the Newcastle hot seat under new management. Whether that happens or not remains to be seen, but this would be one of the biggest transfers in the summer and certainly something to keep an eye on.
But once again, nothing is done and dusted until there’s a signature on the dotted line. But one thing is certain, Newcastle are serious.
