Football Manager 2022: Newcastle Receive Huge Transfer Budget Following Saudi Takeover

Amanda Staveley celebrates Newcastle scoring against Tottenham in the Premier League.

Newcastle United will be handed a hugely generous transfer budget on Football Manager 2022.

The Magpies have recently been taken over by the Saudi Arabia-based consortium Public Investment Fund (PIF), including PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media, who bought out the hugely controversial previous owner Mike Ashley after almost 12 months of talks with the Premier League which prematurely ended as a stalemate.

After a ruling in Qatar regarding their recent ban on the Premier League broadcaster beIN Sports, which has a huge foothold in North Africa and the Middle East, this enabled the takeover to go through, much to the delight of the Toon supporters up and down the country.

Sports Interactive, the developers of the Football Manager games, have consistently produced titles across the years that reflect real-life games, providing a more immersive experience when it comes to their virtual football management sim.

To reflect the recent events in the North-East, this is no exception as they will be given all of the financial power like some of the Premier League's biggest clubs.

Football Manager 2022 Newcastle Takeover

Football Manager 2022 will be released on 9th November 2021.

With the Football Manager 2022 Beta now available, gamers have had the opportunity to analyse some of the transfer budgets from clubs across the world before selecting which team they will start their managerial adventure with. 

Newcastle is one of those sides that has taken a huge interest in this year's game - with many curious in regards to what their budget will be to sign players.

Out of Context Football Manager provided the answer to the question many have been asking, with their budget set to be £200 million.

Newcastle are likely to be one of the most played clubs in this year's game, with many looking to bring some of the top players in world football to St James' Park in their bid for domestic and European glory.

It will be interesting to see whether the lack of Champions League football can attract players to Newcastle, or whether players will have to navigate a few seasons by climbing up the table before these sorts of deals can take place. Time will tell.

Football Manager 2022 will be launched on 9th November 2021 for PC via Steam and Xbox Game Pass.
