So Mike Ashley has put a price of £100m on the club, trying to take some cash and run from the mess he’s made.

After getting the club relegated from the Premiership Fat Ash is trying to recoup some of the money he so-called ‘invested’ into the club. Having loaned the club around £66m, so the new buyer will really get the club for £34m plus the amount of the loan to take the price to £100m.

Once you strip away the high earners and players who didn’t cut it at the club Newcastle should receive around £40m from player sales. Investing around £20m for new players would mean the new buyer only needs to spend around £80m to save the Toon. A bargain in anyone’s book!
