Newcastle United are currently looking for a new manager, but who currently holds the hot seat in our Football Manager 22 simulation?

Newcastle United's STUNNING £300 million starting XI and manager for opening game of 2024/25 - according to Football Manager 22

Ever since Newcastle United’s takeover by the Saudi Arabia backed consortium last month, speculation across the football world has been running rampant about which players could sign for the club and just how quickly they can rise up the domestic and European competitions.

Not long after the ‘beta’ version of the latest instalment of the Football Manager game series, FM22, was released – giving players a chance to play an early access period while the final aspects of the game are being finalised.

The football management simulation game has been wildly popular since it’s initial release in 1992 and is now played by football fans and professional players alike.

‘FM’ is also used as a player database by football clubs due to their worldwide scouting network of around 1,300 scouts which developers use to ensure full accuracy across the game.

We decided to simulate THREE YEARS into the future to see how Newcastle could line up at the start of the 2024/25 Premier League season and the results have been as fascinating as you might expect.

Some of the top talents from across Europe have made their way to St James’ Park and the club are under the management of one of football’s greatest ever coaches.

Here is how FM22, the full version of which is available to buy on November 9, expects the Newcastle United starting XI to look for the first game of the 2024/25 Premier League season:
