American professional boxer and promoter Floyd Mayweather has expressed a desire to buy the Premier League club, should the opportunity arise.
“In the US we call it soccer, but the Newcastle football team is an unbelievable team. A hell of a team” he said when asked in a fan Q&A in Newcastle whether or not he would like to buy the club as quoted by TMZ.
He then smiled and told the crowd, “If the people want me to buy the Newcastle team, let me know!”
Mayweather, who brought in $915 million in the past 10 years, $115 million more than any other athlete, without collecting a single paycheck from a team owner or an eye-popping sponsorship deal.
