Floyd Mayweather Jr wants in on soccer, as in the Premier League, with Newcastle United in his sights, and Cristiano Ronaldo to be one of his marquee signings.The retired boxing legend earned an estimated 100 Million from his fight with Conor McGregor last year and is now keen to invest it in a football club.
“You better believe if I were to invest in Newcastle I would be back partying there often,” he told the Daily Star. “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.”
Ashley reportedly wants around $500 Million for the purchase of the club, which he has owned for the past decade. No chance Floyd ponies up, he doesn’t have that kind of cash. We know the only thing he likes doing more than flashing his cash is running his mouth.
