How Newcastle United's mighty £280m post-takeover team could look - according to Football Manager
My word, it's an exciting time to be a Newcastle United fan, isn't it?
The Magpies saw their eagerly anticipated £300m takeover finally confirmed yesterday afternoon, which could see the club become a Premier League powerhouse and challenge the likes of Liverpool, Man Utd and Chelsea for silverware.
Understandably, supporters of the club have been dreaming of the world class stars who could arrive at St James' Park in the not too distant future, with a major squad overhaul potentially on the cards as the new owners look to flex their bulging financial muscle.
For a bit of fun, we cracked open the most recent edition of the highly-popular game Football Manager, and simulated the big-money takeover of the Magpies, before taking a look at how their side looks at the end of next summer's transfer window spending spree.
This is how Football Manager 2021 predicts a post-takeover Newcastle United will line up on the first day of next season.
