The Premier League club are reportedly in the of nearing a mega takeover by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF).
Max Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino are the high profile managers being considered as a possible replacement for the former Manchester United player should the takeover sail through.
However, the possibility of reaching out to a new manager has not been considered by those involved in the takeover yet, insisting that the current boss should be given at least a chance until at least at the end of the campaign.
Yasir Al-Rumayyan who serves as the head of the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) is likely to be named as the new chairman of Newcastle, with PCP Capital Partners, in particular Staveley, involved in the running the club’s daily activities.
