Fans React On Twitter To News That Rafa Deal Is Close

With the news coming through form multiple sources that Mike Ashley has agreed to all of Rafa’s conditions and that a deal is close for Rafa Benitez to become manager of Newcastle for at least the next three years – delighted Newcastle fans took to Twitter.

The news is that Mike Ashley has agreed to all the conditions Rafa put forward and we would expect the club will want to get this deal completed now as soon as they can – with some other big club said to be interested in the 56 year-old Spaniard.

As part of the deal Chief Scout Graham Carr is expected to step down and Rafa has already begun to discuss transfer targets with Lee Charnley – whom he met with on Monday.

Sources close to the negotiations have said it has all been overwhelmingly positive on both sides – and Rafa is now back home in Liverpool discussing it with his wife and two teenage daughters.
