Report – Newcastle Ready To Sign Rafa To New Deal


There’s a report in the Shields Gazette which has just been released that says that Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is ready to sit down with Rafa and “finalize Rafa’s contract.”

Presumably, that means Rafa will soon be signing his new deal to stay at Newcastle.

But in the article, there doesn’t seem anything to back up the claim – unless the local reporters are hearing something behind the scenes that something is about to happen?

Rafa Benitez – report Mike Ashley ready to do the deal? 

The talks on Rafa’s contract started last Thursday so this is now the 7th day of talks, with a meeting having taken place last Thursday and communication having continued by email and phone since that time.

The report is upbeat and positive, but we’ll believe it all when the club comes out and issues an official statement that Rafa Benitez has signed a new deal to stay at the Tyneside club.

We hope the report is accurate.

We’d also like the deal to be for five years (at least), but for Rafa to sign a long term deal he needs cast-iron assurances that he will be heavily backed by Mike Ashley in the transfer windows coming up.

Rafa will only stay if he is able to build a top team at Newcastle that can challenge every season for Europe.

And start to win trophies!

Comments welcome.

    If it’s come from the Shields Gazette, the oldest regional sail paper, it must be true

    I’ve just read that article and it’s pure speculation. Everything else is based on stuff we already know such as £100m for transfers over the next 2 years (they changed it to 4 transfer windows to make it sound different).

    Oh and sky sports have linked us to signing Harry Wilson for £25m.

    Forget the fact that the link is smileypooemoji, how the hell can he be rated £25m? Take away Liverpool, he’ll be about £10m.

    Hopefully Mikey will do the biz and get this sorted soon. Rafa is just being silly and not helping the situation. Does he not realise Mike is the owner and must control the finances properly. We are so lucky to have a business titan in control. Isnt that right froggy? 🙂 hiya Jib me old flower. 🙂

    OLG,
    I once read a Tom Sharpe novel called The Throwback, it was set in the wilds of Northumberland and one of the central characters reminds me of you.

    I’ve got a good feeling that things are going Rafa’s way and well soon have a team worthy of the manager!
    Surely bad news would have been leaked by now; it’s probably Rafa stringing them along now! Lol
    Howay man Rafa !!

    Lovem or Hatem,
    Is his prediction that a probable meeting between Ashley and Rafa to discuss the contract would be ten days ago in London somewhere going to come true, maybe not!

    @ Jail

    I thought I read Jib’s prediction as something else but like most predictions it will probably not come true
