Rafa Benitez to walk out of Newcastle and wait for Premier League offer

September 20, 2019

Rafa Benitez intends to remain in England if he decides to leave Newcastle United at the end of the month.

The Toon manager’s contract expires at the end of the month.

The Daily Mail says there has been minimal progress in discussions at the end of the season and Benitez is resigned to the fact that his time at the club is over given the longstanding inability to agree on how best to approach in the transfer market.

Barring a dramatic turnaround in relations, there is unlikely even to be talks this week and Benitez’s contract will simply expire at the end of the month.

At present the Newcastle manager has a lucrative offer from Dalian Yifang but is more likely simply to stay in England with his family and see how the coming months unfold.
