Saudi Arabia in talks to buy Newcastle United from Mike Ashley in £340m deal

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the Saudi state is in talks with Mike Ashley to but Newcastle United for around £340m and it is expected to be completed in just a few days. 

The deal is being led by The Public Investment Fund on behalf of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman together with a group of investors organized by British financier Amanda Staveley.

This deal is considered to be the biggest move by the Saudi state into the sports world until now. Saudi Arabia hopes to use sports as a means of leveraging influence in the West. 

Earlier talks between Mr. Ashley and Ms. Staveley didn’t end well. Also, an unsuccessful attempt was made by Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nahyan, a member of the UAE ruling family accompanied by an investment group led by former Manchester United chief executive Peter Kenyon. 

Talks are already in the advanced stage but it is believed it could still fall off. 

As Prince Mohammed is keen to improve Saudi Arabia’s global image, the involvement of Saudi could be seen as a PR initiative designed to abate the criticism of the country’s shocking human rights violation.

Iranian athlete wants to compete for Germany in Tokyo

Iran’s only female Olympic medalist Kimia Alizadeh wants to compete for Germany after leaving her country earlier this year. She also blasted at the Iranian lawmakers. 

She hopes to rebuild her life in Germany and continue her Taekwondo career. 

At a Taekwondo club in Luenen, Germany on Friday, while talking to journalists she said, “Even if I do not make it to the Olympics, it does not matter because I have made up my mind.” 

“I am sure that I will be judged by many, but I am just 21 years old and can attend world tournaments and future Olympics. However, I will spare no effort to get the best result at this time as well.”

Kimia won her bronze medal during the 2016 Olympic in Rio de Janeiro, making her the first female athlete to win a medal for Iran. But soon her joy turned into frustration due to the barriers imposed by her country. 

She even accused the Iranian government of sexism. Also, she criticized the mandatory rule of wearing the hijab in her Instagram post.

با سلام آغاز کنم، با خداحافظی یا تسلیت؟ سلام مردم مظلوم ایران، خداحافظ مردم نجیب ایران، تسلیت به شما مردم همیشه داغدار ایران. شما مرا چقدر می‌شناسید؟ فقط آنطور که در مسابقات، در تلویزیون، یا در حضور مقامات دیده‌اید. اجازه دهید حالا آزادانه، هویت سانسور شده‌ام را معرفی کنم. می‌گویند کیمیا پس از این چیزی نخواهد شد. خودم از این هم فراتر می‌روم و می‌گویم قبل از این هم چیزی نبوده‌ام: «من کیمیا علیزاده، نه تاریخسازم، نه قهرمانم، نه پرچمدار کاروان ایران» من یکی از میلیون‌ها زن سرکوب شده در ایرانم که سال‌هاست هر طور خواستند بازی‌ام دادند. هر کجا خواستند بردند. هر چه گفتند پوشیدم. هر جمله‌ای دستور دادند تکرار کردم. هر زمان صلاح دیدند، مصادره‌ام کردند. مدال‌هایم را پای حجاب اجباری گذاشتند و به مدیریت و درایت خودشان نسبت دادند. من برایشان مهم نبودم. هیچکداممان برایشان مهم نیستیم، ما ابزاریم. فقط آن مدال‌های فلزی اهمیت دارد تا به هر قیمتی که خودشان نرخ گذاشتند از ما بخرند و بهره‌برداری سیاسی کنند، اما همزمان برای تحقیرت، می‌گویند: فضیلت زن این نیست که پاهایش را دراز کند! من صبح‌ها هم از خواب بیدار می‌شوم پاهایم ناخودآگاه مثل پنکه می‌چرخد و به در و دیوار می‌گیرد. آنوقت چگونه می‌توانستم مترسکی باشم که می‌خواستند از من بسازند؟ در برنامه زنده تلویزیون، سوال‌هایی پرسیدند که دقیقاً بخاطر همان سوال دعوتم کرده بودند. حالا که نیستم می‌گویند تن به ذلت داده‌ام. آقای ساعی! من آمدم تا مثل شما نباشم و در مسیری که شما پیش رفتید قدم برندارم. من در صورت تقلید بخشی از رفتارهای شما، بیش از شما می‌توانستم به ثروت و قدرت برسم. من به اینها پشت کردم. من یک انسانم و می‌خواهم بر مدار انسانیت باقی بمانم. در ذهن‌های مردسالار و زن‌ستیزتان، همیشه فکر می‌کردید کیمیا زن است و زبان ندارد! روح آزرده من در کانال‌های آلوده اقتصادی و لابی‌های تنگ سیاسی شما نمی‌گنجد. من جز تکواندو، امنیت و زندگی شاد و سالم درخواست دیگری از دنیا ندارم. مردم نازنین و داغدار ایران، من نمی‌خواستم از پله‌های ترقی که بر پایه فساد و دروغ بنا شده بالا بروم. کسی به اروپا دعوتم نکرده و در باغ سبز به رویم باز نشده. اما رنج و سختی غربت را بجان می‌خرم چون نمی‌خواستم پای سفره ریاکاری، دروغ، بی عدالتی و چاپلوسی بنشینم. این تصمیم از کسب طلای المپیک هم سخت‌تر است، اما هر کجا باشم فرزند ایران زمین باقی می‌مانم. پشت به دلگرمی شما می‌دهم و جز اعتماد شما در راه سختی که قدم گذاشته‌ام، خواسته دیگری ندارم.

Furthermore, Alizadeh accused the country’s lawmakers of lying and injustice towards the Iranian athletes. 

Alizadeh was in Netherlands earlier this week to meet the taekwondo officials. The German Taekwondo union has spoken in her favor and letting her represent and compete for the country.

She said, “If the German government assists me and I can go through this process as fast as possible, I might be able to make it to the Olympics too.” 

According to recent reports, she even received offers from Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, and Bulgaria to compete. 

Kimia said, wore everything the government asked her to and “repeated everything they told me to say. … None of us matter to them.”

Kimia said she just wants “a peaceful life,” and she’s not looking back.

“I have a great feeling to have made a decision for my life that would definitely change my future,” she said. “I think it is not even clear enough now and, in the years to come, I will understand what a good decision I made.”

Many Iranian athletes have left the country in recent years due to government intervention.
