Newcastle United may not yet have a name to convince top stars to join their club but they certainly have the money to rival any club in the world, if that is coupled with good negotiations they can certainly get anything or anyone they want in world football today.

The club's new owners are yet to publicly lay out their immediate plans for the club and a battle of money is already waiting to happen between the Saudi backed club and Dubai backed club Manchester City over who will have Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers.

Manchester City sees Brendan Rodgers as Pep Guardiola's replacement when the Spaniard departs in 2023 when his contract expires after seven years at the Etihad while Newcastle United sees him as the man who will undertake the transition of the club into the next level under the new era.

Leicester City is owned by Thai billionaires and values Brendan Rodgers at £16m and has a contract until 2025. City will wait till 2023 before making a move for Rodgers but Newcastle United are believed to want to move immediately and pay Rodger's release clause of £16m and have him begin their rebuilding process.
