Boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather Jnr, has said he is looking to buy Premier League club, Newcastle United.
Mayweather retired last year, after ending his glittering career with a 50-0 record, following his TKO victory over UFC star, Conor McGregor.
The American earned in excess of $100million for that bout and is now ready to invest some of it in football.
Newcastle have been on the market since last October, with Sports Direct boss Mike Ashley keen to walkaway from the club.
“You better believe if I were to invest in Newcastle I would be back partying there often.
“I love Newcastle. Those guys like to party as hard as any city I have been to anywhere in the world. I met some of the players last year – and they are good guys. I am always open to new business opportunities and I love all sports, but I invest with my head not my heart.
“Investing with your heart is the quickest way to lose money. But if somebody put together a business plan and my people looking over it and went ‘Floyd that can make money’ then I would invest. Soccer might not be my game but I’ve got connections everywhere.
“Cristiano Ronaldo has been a long-time supporter and buddy of mine, so I might even be able to get him to finish his career off at Newcastle,” Mayweather told the Daily Star Sunday.
