The Times are claiming that Mike Ashley would now consider offers of £380million to sell the club and that some interested buyers have signed non-disclosure agreements recently.
Speaking earlier this season Ashley said in that PR stunt “If somebody would like come along and take this seat and fund Newcastle with a nought on the end with their wealth more than me, I will not stand in Newcastle United’s way. “One of the reasons I’m doing this interview is that I don’t think you’ll find there’s many people out there who will actually stand up and do it. “I’ve put my £250million into the football club. Guys, that’s it. There’s no more from me. Now the club has to generate its own money.” Newcastle United have not commented yet on this. Thoughts?
