Newcastle United were taken over by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund last October and made their first change a month later, by appointing Eddie Howe as manager.

The Magpies have managed three wins in their last three league matches and that’s seen them get out of the relegation zone. They are 17th in the table with 21 points after 23 matches and trail 14th place Brentford by three points, with two games in hand.

Howe was given new players in January and it should further improve the Tyneside club’s chances of staying in the Premier League. Despite Newcastle’s recent run under the orders of the ex-Bournemouth boss, they could look at José Mourinho in the summer.

The Portuguese tactician is now at AS Roma and according to Leggo, via, he has ‘no assurances’ from the Friedkin Group over new signings in the summer.

Newcastle’s current owners, on the other hand, will have no such issues. It’s even claimed the PIF are ‘most intent on tempting’ the former Chelsea manager with ‘promises of a pharaonic signing campaign’.
