Last month Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) took over at Newcastle United after buying the club from former owner Mike Ashley for £300m and are reportedly willing to spend £5bn in initial investment over the next five years which will cover infrastructural development, academy and transfers.

They have been linked to a host of top managers as well as top players but the earlier years is not going to be easy, they will battle hard to get into Europe before they can attract the right set of players and if there's a manager who could do the job, it is former Arsenal and PSG manager Unai Emery who is currently at Villarreal.

Unai Emery began his coaching career at Lorca Deportiva, the last club he played for in his professional career. He has also managed Almeria, Valencia, Spartak Moscow, Sevilla, PSG, Arsenal and is currently at Villarreal. He has won 11 major trophies in his career including four UEFA Europa League titles.

Emery is reputable for masterminding Europa League triumphs, he has won four of the five Europa League finals he has played, losing only to Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea in 2019. He won three consecutive Europa League titles with Sevilla between 2014 to 2016. He has a net worth of $13m.
