We’re sure that Mike Ashley told Rafa Benitez in January that once we were safe in the Premier League, he would begin his efforts to sell the club again.
That explains why Rafa has been very cool over the last three months or so and why he has even talked long-term about Newcastle and about the changes that must be made in running the club.
And if Mike Ashley wants to sell Newcastle, there’s no better person to explain the future than Rafa Benitez.
All he would have to do for potential new owners is to go through his detailed blueprint for the club and the changes that are necessary and how the club should be run.
Rafa Benitez – potential new owners should look at his blueprint
And Mike Ashley could even have a quick deal this summer.
Rafa’s blueprint he went through with Mike Ashley last May was largely ignored by the owner, but there’s no better manager than Rafa Benitez to take Newcastle United forward and back to greatness.
If Amanda Staveley is really interested in still buying Newcastle, then she should come in with a straight cash offer of £300M for the club.
The Telegraph reported today there have been two new buyers express interest in buying Newcastle over the last few weeks.
More performances like against Manchester United and Southampton will probably bring more would-be buyers to the club.
The more, the better because competition for the club will drive the price up and we could have a quick deal.
But Rafa Benitez is key to all of this – as he has been since he joined the club.
Did I say Rafa was the perfect manager for Newcastle?
