The news that the Premier League team Newcastle had sold out has been a small half-year ago. According to reports, Newcastle owner Ashley has reached an agreement with the Saudi Arabian Crown Prince and a consortium led by Mohammed The Newcastle club will be sold for 300 million pounds. Unfortunately, in the end, the Premier League failed to complete the background and funding investigation of the new boss and the board of directors. This also made the Saudi consortium wait for a full 17 weeks and finally abandoned the acquisition on the grounds of unstable global economic environment.
The failure of Newcastle’s selling this time also made Newcastle fans happy and missed the opportunity to become a Premier League giant. The British media "The Sun" reported that fans of the "Magpie" Newcastle had initiated a petition online earlier, hoping that British Prime Minister Johnson could intervene in the investigation of the acquisition of Newcastle United, which has temporarily obtained 93,000 signatures.
Although some major British officials pointed out earlier that the British government would not intervene in this incident, British Prime Minister Johnson decided to respond to the request of the "magpies" fans and agreed with their views: "I am so happy that the Ombudsman Pledge to follow up this case, and the FA should issue a detailed statement on this matter."
