The financial power of Newcastle United was best felt by Milan, who tried to bring Sven Botman for months, but in the end the defender ended up at St. James Park.
As well as being able to steal players from under the noses of the giants, Newcastle United look determined to show that they can also sign players from today’s best teams.
Reports from Spain suggest the Magpies have made a move for Real Madrid striker Marco Asensio in what would be their most high-profile signing yet.
Asensio is not that standard at Real, so it could very easily happen th at he leaves the Santiago Bernabeu and heads to England.
AS writes that the royal club wants at least 50 million euros for the Spanish international, an amount that does not represent a big challenge for Newcastle United.
By the way, in addition to Botman, Matt Targett, who was bought from Aston Villa, and reliable goalkeeper Nick Pope arrived at the club, which will have high ambitions in the new season.
So far, 66 million euros have been spent on three transfers, less than last year when the transfers of Bruno Guimarães, Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood cost 100 million.
The Magpies are the richest club in the world thanks to the PIF fund headed by Judge Prince Mohammed bin Salman and his personal wealth is estimated at $18 billion.
