He now intend to invest in football by buying Newcastle United. The American insists that he like to invest with his head and not his heart.
“I am always open to new business opportunities and I love all sports, but I invest with my head not my heart, he added

“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.”
