Itâ€™s getting hard to believe, with all the reports flying around, that Harry Redknapp will not be offered the manager job at Newcastle United.
Mike Ashley – almost certain Harry Redknapp is his first choice
Harry will get a fabulous offer from new owner Mike Ashley who is reported to be willing to offer a top package that will lure Redknapp away from Portsmouth. The reports say the offer will contain a Â£5M/year wage packet.
Ashley certainly has the money, but already the Newcastle venture has cost the Billionaire a lot more than he had bargained for. However, that doesnâ€™t seem to have quelled the appetite of Ashley to make Newcastle great again. You canâ€™t help but think the passion of Newcastle around football has already taken hold on the successful businessman.
And of course Mike prefers to watch the game from the stands with the supporters, so heâ€™s a real fellow with real passion for the club. Thatâ€™s some of the good news for the Newcastle faithful.
If Harry Redknapp gets the job there are reports that seem to be jumping the gun, but say he will make a move immediately for Pascal Chimbonda from Spurs. Not sure we need him with Habib Beye looking so good, and of course Newcastle already have a bid of around Â£5.5M lodged for Arsenal’s 22 year-old Lassana Diarra. And Diarra may be willing to hold off on a decision until he sees who takes over at Newcastle.
Donâ€™t be surprised if we still end of with Lassana at Newcastle since Chris Mort is still negotiating with both Arsenal and the player.
What do you think about all this?
