With some newfound riches incoming, Newcastle United might be looking to solidify its defense.

According to Sport Bild’s Christian Falk, Newcastle United might be planning a big splurge — and it could include Bayern Munich defender Niklas Süle being the focal point of its backline.

Newcastle United’s ownership structure is about to change and there is expected to be a huge influx of cash into the club. With Süle being a free agent after this season, the English club can more than afford to bulk up his salary — not only because of the newfound cash in its coffers — but because there would not be any pesky transfer fee for the club to pay.

For Süle, whose appearance in the “WhatsApp” scandal outed his desire for a move to the Premier League, this could be a good landing spot — where he could fill a pool with Scrooge McDuck-type money and dive into it every day after training if he would like.

The Bavarians, however, are expected to make a strong push to keep the talented and physically gifted defender.

Buckle up for this transfer journey...it could be a bumpy ride.
