The Bellagraph Nova Group (BNG) has claimed that it would be eyeing up players like Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo amid talks of a possible takeover of Newcastle.
The Daily Telegraph reports that the Singapore-backed company has made a £280m bid for the Premier League club.
And the newspaper added that BNG recruited help from former Newcastle strikers Alan Shearer and Michael Chopra as part of its takeover plans.
The company's Twitter page outlined its vision in the sports world and suggested a world-class player of Ronaldo's ability is a "true representative of our values."
BNG tweeted on Monday: "While seeking to expand our boundaries and thriving for excellence, the BNG is on the quest of new sport adventures which leads us to establishing new synergies with different clubs and players such as @Cristiano who is a true representative of our value."
According to Sky Sports, BNG's negotiations with Mike Ashley's Newcastle are believed to be in the 'advanced stages.'
The publication added that the company, whose HQ is based in Paris, is willing to "massively contribute" to Newcastle's overall development.
"Bellagraph Nova Group's founders (have) already provided a LOI (Letter of Intent) as well as a proof of funds on August 10," reads BNG's statement.
"In addition to the engagement to the Newcastle Football Club and community, Bellagraph Nova Group enlisted help of [former] England captain Alan Shearer and former player Michael Chopra."
Ronaldo currently has two years remaining on his Juventus deal, but his future has been cast in doubt in recent weeks after the club's Champions League exit.
