EPL: We’re in market to compete – Newcastle Utd’s new owners respond to Mbappe transfer

Newcastle United’s part-owner and director, Amanda Staveley, has said that the club aims to compete for world-class players under their new Saudi owners.

Staveley said this while responding to Paris Saint-Germain Kylian Mbappe’s transfer question.

According to her, Newcastle are in the transfer market to compete for the best players in world football.

On Thursday, the Saudi Arabia-backed consortium led by Staveley completed its £305million takeover of Newcastle, bringing an end to Mike Ashley’s 14-year reign in charge of the club.

“But we need the infrastructure around the world-class players. We will get there, and we already have world-class players, we want to make sure they have the support around them.

“You do need a big balance sheet in football, but we are not here to be irrational, it is a state investment fund and there to look after the people.

“We have to do a full review, where the operations are, what we are looking at in January, but it is going to take a little time.”
