American boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has declared an interest in buying Premier League side Newcastle United.
For the past few years, the current owner of Newcastle United, Mike Ashley, has been reported to be interested in selling the club, and he may have gotten a buyer now.
According to a report on Sportbible, which was also reported in the Daily Mail, Floyd Mayweather explained in a question-and-answer session that he was interested in Newcastle United.
In January this year, an unnamed Saudi Arabia billionaire was linked with a move to buy Newcastle United, but nothing came out of it.
Floyd Mayweather is most probably the richest athlete or sportsperson in the world.

Even after retiring, the man, known as the 'Money Man', is still making a lot of cash thanks to some clever business investments.
The 43-year-old has many mansions in America, lot of cars and private jets and there is probably nothing which he cannot buy.
He has extended his money to his children, who also drive exotic cars around in America, and friends are not left behind either.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that Floyd Mayweather is not taking anything for granted, demanding $600 million for his comeback 2020 fight with Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The Money Man earned a whopping £300 million when he fought the Notorious Irish fighter McGregor back in 2017.
Now the undefeated boxing king is working closely with UFC President Dana King to arrange rematches with McGregor and Khabib on the same day.
If that comes to pass, Mayweather is looking at making the highest pay-per-view event in boxing's history.
