A big Rafa Benitez hint has emerged from Sky Sports’ Keith Downie in the last few moments.
Speaking on Sky Sports News this afternoon, he’s stated it’s “almost inevitable” that Amanda Staveley and the Saudi-backed consortium bidding to buy Newcastle United will make a move for Rafa Benitez if and when a deal goes through.
Here’s what Sky’s north-east correspondent has had to say in the last few moments when asked the following question during a Q&A session on the proposed NUFC takeover in the last few moments:
Q: Given how much Staveley wanted Benitez to be the manager in 2017/18 do you think likely they will make approach for him to return?
So, not only does he insist he’d be “very surprised” if the potential new owners don’t make another move for the Spaniard, he feels it would be an offer the former Newcastle boss couldn’t turn down.
One to watch if a deal does go through in the coming days/weeks!
Would you like to see Rafa back at the helm?
