Rafa Benitez has revealed he has already had discussions with the club (Lee Charnley) on the transfer budget, the plan for the future and his possible contract extension.
These talks will continue next week, and Rafa himself is hoping he can get things agreed as quickly as possible, so that seems quite positive with still four games to play this season.
We assume Rafa knows what Mike Ashley plans to do in the summer, and it may not be to sell the club.
It could be that Ashley may have changed his mind after Newcastle with Rafa at the helm have done so well this year.
Ashley may actually help Rafa in the summer transfer window and then we will see where Newcastle can go next season!

This is some of what Rafa has said in his press conference today about the future:
“I have had conversations with the club and we will talk again next week.”
“My representatives are talking with Lee Charnley and they will again.”
“It is about my future and everything else too. But we will see what happens.”
“It is good if things are resolved quickly.”
“I don’t want to talk about my ambitions. We have to talk, the ambitions of the club are the ambitions of the fans.”
“We have to try to do our best with this massive club”
