According to Eurosport France journalist Manu Lonjon, Newcastle United prospective new owners are planning to hold a big strategic meeting concerning the club’s takeover and immediate future on Tuesday.

The French journalist was the first to break the news that Magpies owner Mike Ashley had finally agreed to sell the club to Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund earlier this month, and he appears to be very much in the know about the latest concerning every move of the impending takeover.

The PIF, Amanda Staveley and Reuben Brothers are the major parties pushing for the takeover, and they now plan to meet in order to refine the project, make a list of profiles and names for different positions ahead of their ownership of Newcastle.

For such a meeting to be scheduled, it means everything is going on smoothly and as planned concerning the takeover, and the Premier League is said to be carrying out its owners’ and directors’ test.

As the Eurosport France journalist earlier claimed, an official announcement regarding the success of the takeover remains planned for next month, and as The Athletic’s David Ornstein has suggested, Ashley letting go of Newcastle is looking very likely this time.
