Floyd Mayweather Jnr has hinted that he could invest in Newcastle and lure his friend Cristiano Ronaldo to join the club.

Mike Ashley has been under intense pressure to sell the club, and it was reported that a deal that was said to be in place to sell the club last October fell through – with Ashley describing the process of striking a deal “frustrating.”

The English billionaire is reported to have placed a fee in the region of £350m on the club, and Mayweather had indicated interest in investing in the club.

The 41-year-old said he loved to invest in businesses, and revealed that the City of Newcastle was the major reason he was showing interest in investing in the club.

"I love Newcastle, these boys like to celebrate as hard as in any city in the world, I got to know some of the players last year and they are good guys," he explained

"I am always looking at new business opportunities and I love all sports but I invest with my head and not my heart.

"Invest with the heart is the fastest way to lose money but if someone puts together a business plan then my people can look at it and tell me if I can make money, then I would invest.

“Maybe football is not my game but I have connections everywhere.

"Cristiano is a friend of mine for a long time and he could even finish his career in Newcastle."

Question of whether Cristiano would like to work again with Benitez would be the first thing Mayweather needs to answer if he gets to secure Newcastle.

And with the goal machine CR7 not ready to turn to a defender soonest, all things being equal, this dream from The Money Bag himself is way off the mark
