Newcastle’s purchase of Prince Mohammed bin Salman continues to be controversial. Saudi Arabia’s public investment fund will pay around € 343 million for 80% of magpies.
In front of Newcastle will be bin Salman, suspected of ordering the death of Jamal Khashoggi, a journalist critical of the Saudi regime, who was in exile in Turkey.
“My message to Newcastle’s owners is that moral values must prevail in this business. Money cannot buy everything in the world and a no to the prince was going to be important to show that. In addition, we will be putting the credibility of English football in question, ”Khashoggi’s widow Hatice Cengiz explained to the BBC.
It is recalled that Jamal Khashoggi was murdered on 2 October 2018 when he went to the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul. The order, according to an international investigation, is said to have been given by Mohammed bin Salman.
