There was another negative report from the Mirror this morning that Rafa Benitez could leave Newcastle for West Ham in the summer with the Hammers targeting the former Valencia and Liverpool manager if current manager Slaven Bilic doesn’t produce improved results before the end of this season.
At the beginning of the season when West Ham got off to a very poor start there were also reports the London club could go after Rafa if results didn’t improve.
We think there’s very little chance that Rafa would leave Newcastle for the Hammers – unless owner Mike Ashley messes with Rafa in the summer – but that would be stupid if the owner did that.
Rafa Benitez – Newcastle manager
Can see Rafa going in the summer with no backing but to West Ham!? ? He would want a bigger club and better owners not smaller & worse #NUFC

Would it really be a surprise if Rafa left for West Ham? Not for me it wouldn’t, if Mike messes him about then he’ll be away #nufc

REPORTS: The Mirror again claim West Ham have #NUFC manager Rafa Benitez on their shortlist if Salven Bilic leaves.
Getting boring this.
