This should have been an exciting time for Newcastle fans with the club raking in £123M from the Premier League yesterday and Rafa Benitez all ready to have a busy transfer window.
Mike Ashley’s aim last January was to sign up Rafa to a new deal but as we have found out with Ashley – nothing is ever easy, and he’s also stubborn.
This is now the end of the fourth week of negotiations with Rafa’s representatives to get him to sign a new deal, but nothing has happened.
It always looked like David Moyes would not stay at West Ham and that the Hammers would really like to sign Rafa.
Both West Ham Chairmen David Gold and David Sullivan are in some trouble with their fans after some poor results this season and the team fighting relegation.
That was even more reason they would go after Rafa who is a favorite with Hammers’ fans, and they have.
Not only that but it looks like they will be willing to give Rafa all he asks for in London.
If we lose Rafa Benitez to West Ham – the dream is over, and it’s that man Mike Ashley responsible again.
He has been a complete and utter disaster for the club.
And it appears even when he (says he) wants to sell up and leave the club he seems to be making sure our future is ruined before he finally leaves.
He needs to get Rafa signed up quickly.
