It has been quite a busy summer transfer window for Newcastle United so far. We are already in the final month of Rafael Benitez’s contract, which is set to expire at the end of June. The Spaniard has been linked with a move away from the Tyneside, with Roma a potential destination.
The uncertain future of Benitez has also taken a considerable hit in Newcastle’s business in the transfer window, with very few players being linked in recent weeks. But most importantly, it has been the takeover talks, which has dominated the news, of late.
It was believed that the Magpies were on the verge of a takeover from Bin Zayed Group with club owner Mike Ashley being involved in serious negotiations in recent days. But, among all these clouds of uncertainties, Newcastle fans haven’t had a great time, and it has been rather evident when looking at some of the reactions from social media.
Most of the fans were fuming at the lengthy negotiations over the Bin Zayed takeover and the fact that it could potentially end in a no go.
Waiting for this Newcastle takeover to happen is genuinely stressful

Rafa Nadal gets to the French Open Final.
It's raining in British summer time.
Newcastle are supposed to be in the midst of a takeover but no one knows what's happening and don't actually believe it.
Some things never change.#nufc

Conservative Newcastle fans, meanwhile, are still in support of Rafa remaining at the club beyond this summer.
Trophies??? we just need a stable, balanced club, heading in the right direction with a competent owner and that has the fans on side…
Then…. we might be able to retain a manager like Rafa Benitez.

The optimistic Newcastle fans also played their part as a successful takeover could potential make Newcastle one of the biggest teams in England.

Some were quick to troll Newcastle’s transfer targets amid ongoing talks of a massive takeover.
a week ago:
– Newcastle 25/1 to sign Mbappe
– Newcastle 25/1 to sign Gareth Bale
– Sheikh Khaled takeover ‘complete’
– Newcastle want to sign 32 year old Scott Dann for 6m.

And it also applies to the other side of the spectrum.
Even if the takeover happens at newcastle, there is 0 chance mbappe goes there, why would he go from neymar and verratti to ayoze perez and shelvey😂
