The Bin Zayed Group have given a statement confirming that every aspect of the Newcastle United takeover has been completed
Back in May, the Zayed Group had come out and claimed that the company had agreed to the terms and conditions of the takeover and had consented on the £350 million deal.
The current founder of the Newcastle United team is Ashley who bought the club for AED1.6 Million (£134.4) back in 2007. Although because of the constant backlash that he received on neglecting the team and its player he had put up the club for sale three times.
Finally, Sheikh Nahyan responded to the bid and the deal to take over the Premier League football club Newcastle United will be finalized any day now.
“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to build on the strong support, history and tradition of the club.”
