ClearTV Media chief executive Henry Mauriss has lodged a £350 million bid to purchase Newcastle United, according to thesenior football correspondent Ian Dennis.
The article is reported by Main Newcastle Writer Lee Ryder of, further describing the American’s intentions to be in charge of the St. James’ Park outfit by next season start:
Recent reports from the World Trade Organization revealed that Saudi was supporting pirate satellite TV beoutQ, and with that threatening to deal a blow to the chances of buying Newcastle from PIF, Mauriss pounced.
Mauriss is now training his team to relocate if the £300 million offer from the Public Investment Fund to buy Newcastle falls through, and his legal team believes that it would take him less than three weeks to clear the Owners’ and Directors’ Review of the Premier League.
Meanwhile, the Amanda Staveley-led bid has failed to pass the test. It’s been more than nine weeks since the Premier League started interviewing her.
On the other hand, the Reuben Brothers and the Saudis faced another series of questions sent to them last weekend, just days after they answered initial questions comprehensively.
