According to Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe, superstar players like Neymar of Paris St. Germain and Cristiano Ronaldo of Al Nassr are beyond of Newcastle United’s financial grasp.
Following the purchase of Newcastle by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) in October 2021, the club is now among the wealthiest in the world.
The club has been connected to transfers including players like Neymar and Ronaldo.

Howe added, “We could not possibly be able to afford those players.”
They are the world’s top athletes. We must look below the surface to locate young players and develop them into the best players they can be since we will never be able to pay such transfer fees and wages at the moment.
Newcastle has spent roughly £250 million on new hires since the takeover, including Kieran Trippier, Bruno Guimaraes, Sven Botman, Nick Pope, and record-breaking purchase Alexander Isak.

“Now, we haven’t hired in that manner. We are now unable to hire in this manner due to financial constraints, but we must also add the proper individuals and athletes to the team.
“I’ll admit that choosing a player on the transfer market is a difficult decision; you can’t just choose a name and sign them.
“What we’re doing needs to be carefully considered, both financially and in terms of the players,” the manager said.
