How Newcastle United’s jaw-dropping £500m side could look in 22/23 - according to Football Manager

The Magpies are expected to spend big in the summer transfer window.

This summer promises to be an exciting one for Newcastle United and their supporters.

With plenty of money to spend and a renewed sense of optimism surrounding the club, the Magpies continue to be linked with a whole host of new acquisitions.
