Liverpool and Barcelona target Franck Kessie has attracted the attention of Newcastle United thanks to their new owners, PIF.
The Premier League could be having some drastic changes in the near future, due to Newcastle’s new owners.
A lot of fans were already getting fed up of Manchester City and Chelsea’s owners spending absurd amounts of money each year but Newcastle’s could go even crazier.
Roman Abramovich, Chelsea’s owner, is the third richest owner in the Premier League with a net worth of £9.6billion.
Manchester City’s owner, Sheikh Mansour, comes in at second place with a healthy £22.9billion.
And finally, the richest owners in the Premier League are now Newcastle United’s owners, the Saudi Public Investment Fund, who clock in at a staggering net worth of £320billion.
Comparing that to Liverpool’s owners, Fenway Sport Group who are the 12th richest owners in the League, who are worth £2.14billion, it’s pocket change for Newcastle’s owners.
Newcastle Enter the Race for Franck Kessie
The Magpies new owners have a lot of money and they’re already making problems for Liverpool.
The Reds have been eyeing Franck Kessie from AC Milan, whose contract expires next summer, for the past couple of months now
Kessie’s representatives and AC Milan executive’s are currently at a standstill with his contract talks.
This has opened the door for Barcelona and PSG, as Spanish publication Elnacional reported earlier this week.
According to multiple sources, Liverpool are currently lying in wait and scoping out the situation.
However, in a recent report from Tuttosport, they claim that Kessie has been added to Newcastle United’s list of potential transfers in the future.
LFC Transfer Room Verdict
This could be bad news for Liverpool. Newcastle’s owners don’t seem to be afraid to flex their wealth early on.
However, I trust that Michael Edwards and Jurgen Klopp will only be interested in players that want to come to Liverpool to play for our historic club, not just for the money.
