Fans who have long called for financial backing will be delighted to learn that Newcastle as are short as evens to be the top-spending club in the summer transfer window.
A spokesman from SportNation.Bet said: "If this rumoured takeover gets completed then we could well have a new English powerhouse on our hands.
“Already a huge club with a massive fan base, the billions injected into the club could well bring silverware to Tyneside just like it has done with Manchester City, something that is suggested in the projected odds."
However, most of us have been through this many times before. As long as Mike Ashley is at the club, we don't expect to be splashing the cash.
