Newcastle boss Steve Bruce should be given out until the end of the season, at least to prove that he is the right manager to steer the club towards European football.

The Premier League is ratifying a plan to buy £ 300 million from the club from the Saudi consortium backed by Amanda Staveley, which includes Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Max Allegri, Mauricio Pochettino and former Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez are among a number of big names presented as potential replacements for Bruce once the takeover has passed the relevant mandatory checks in the coming weeks.

However, those involved in the takeover have not approached a potential new manager and believe Bruce should have at least until the end of the season to assert his claim.

Yasir Al-Rumayyan, head of the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF), will take over the presidency of Newcastle, along with PCP Capital Partners, in particular Staveley, involved in the day-to-day management of the club.

Al-Rumayyan’s goals are for Newcastle to win trophies and qualify regularly for Europe.

However, within the organization there is an awareness that the rules of financial fair play will curb the desire to win a multitude of multi-million pound signatures.

With all the contractual issues between the two sides complete and the test of owners and administrators well advanced in the Premier League, it is believed that the takeover at St James ‘Park could be completed by the end of April.

Bruce, 59, guided Newcastle to 13th in the Premier League standings and a meeting with Manchester City holders in the FA Cup quarter-finals before the football suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic.

– Born in Ripon, Yorkshire in April 1973

– Married in 2011 to Mehrdad Ghodoussi, of Iranian origin. They have a child Lexi, born after the start of Staveley’s work at a business meeting

– The family has houses in Dubai and London’s Park Lane

– She was spotted in the stands of St James ‘Park in October 2017 before Mike Ashley announced his intention to sell the club

– Staveley was credited with the organization of the takeover of Man City by Cheikh Mansour to Thaksin Shinawatra in 2009

– Also in 2009, she was involved in an unsuccessful attempt to take control of Liverpool, moving away when the Fenway Sports Group valued the club at £ 1 billion.

– She almost bought Newcastle United in January 2018, via its financing vehicle PCP Capital Partners

“New owners will want to buy big”

Jamie Redknapp, speaking on The Football Show:

They will invest, they want to buy big players and bring Newcastle back to where they should be again.

Times have been tough for Mike Ashley. He has not always been loved by Newcastle fans and he has not always helped himself. Perhaps this would be the best way for the two sides to separate and give new owners the opportunity to put the club back on a straight and narrow line, and so that everyone can enjoy their football there again. top because it’s a great place to play.

A good Newcastle challenge for the top six is ​​what we all want. More than anything, he tries to find a factor of well-being. When you go to watch Newcastle, we spend half of our time talking about the disconnection between the owner and the fans, and it’s not ideal.

Football is hard enough like that already and right now there will be a little bit of positivity about the club once it’s over; we hope this will happen as soon as possible.

“The challenge of the first six will not be easy”

Jamie Carragher, speaking on The Football Show:

I’ve been talking about Mike Ashley for so long. I don’t think he wanted to be there, and I don’t think Newcastle fans want him to be there.

The big problem the new owners will have is the same as all the other clubs have when they think they can challenge the first four.

I look at teams like West Ham and Everton who have invested a lot of money into it, thinking that they could really challenge the first six and even the first four.

However, it’s very, very difficult and all of a sudden, before you realize it, you’re in big financial trouble yourself because you’re really trying to attack these top clubs.

It will be very difficult to bring Newcastle back to its place in terms of challenges for a champion title. I do not see that, but in terms of challenges for European places, trying to get into the top six is ​​not easy.

The great thing for Newcastle is that the fans had a manager they loved Rafa Benitez and Mike Ashley lost him, and they brought in Steve Bruce, who I think did a brilliant job. But he’s still not universally loved up there, for whatever reason.

The interesting thing now is whether this is one of the first decisions. You talk about buying and selling players, but the most important person in a football club is a manager and I would like Bruce to have the opportunity to show what he can do in terms of the transfer market.

But it will be the biggest decision these new owners will have to make. Are they staying with Steve Bruce? Or will they try to recover Benitez or another great manager? It’s probably more important to the fans than the players they bring.
