Mike Ashley, the longtime owner of Newcastle United, has no intention of staying out of a club for a long time. He wants to take over Derby County in financial trouble.
Sky Sports reports that. The acquisition would involve almost 60 million euros. Ashley has spent the last 48 hours talking to the temporary members of Derby County, who has already received 21 points in the deduction due to the financial slump. Ashley‘s bid would have been the highest to come in so far at The Rams, who are being trained by Wayne Rooney.
It would mean a quick return from Ashley to the football world. In October of last year, he sold Newcastle United to the new owners from Saudi Arabia, ending his fourteen year period at The Magpies. Newcastle supporters were only a bit happy about this as Ashley wasn’t a popular owner.
Former Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is preparing a formal £50m offer to buy Derby County.
