News today in the Mail that Rafa Benitez is considering staying on at Newcastle even if we are relegated.
But he wants assurances from the club on certain issues such as money being available this summer and he wants the improvements to the Benton Training grounds to begin immediately.
He has apparently already given his input on changes he wants made to the plans.
He also wants a complete overhaul of the Newcastle squad this summer.
Here’s our extensive report on what Rafa wants from Newcastle and the chances he will stay on at the club.
We really hope this news is true – but you never know.
Meanwhile Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter – here are some typical tweets.
If Rafa is keen to stay everything else must be put aside by the fans to show their love and loyalty for him. #nufc

I would be absolutely delighted with a year (hopefully just one) in the wilderness, if Rafa stays on. Clear the decks, build again #NUFC

I’d give Rafa the jobs (and salaries) of Charnley, Graham Carr, and let him have total control. #nufc
