Newcastle United fans are absolutely loving the latest tweet from Allan Saint-Maximin.
The club are on the brink of a takeover, with PCP Capital Partners finally set to own the club 18 months after agreeing a deal.
There was a big breakthrough on Wednesday, and it looks like the Saudi-backed consortium are finally set to complete a takeover.
The excitement around the club is incredible. Fans have gone from wanting Steve Bruce out after seven games without a win to being on the brink of supporting the richest club in the world.
It’s been an astonishing 24 hours. Thursday could bring us the news we’ve been waiting for. Mike Ashley should no longer own Newcastle United.
While the fans are excited, the players should be too. They will now be playing for a club with ambition beyond just surviving in the Premier League.
The takeover will also help us keep our best players – namely Allan Saint-Maximin.
The Frenchman is an incredible footballer who has bigger ambitions than being in a relegation fight. He could play at a much higher level than Ashley’s Newcastle.
But with new owners, the club can give Saint-Maximin what he wants.
The 24-year-old has been active on Twitter this morning, posting a video of a very happy man saying ‘good morning’. There is no caption, but Toon fans think they know exactly what it is in relation to.
Considering the news is flooded with Newcastle takeover talk, it seems highly unlikely that Saint-Maximin is unaware of what is going on behind the scenes.
Fans think he knows about the takeover. And it’s a deal that could take the club, and Saint-Maximin, to new heights.
