Of course the main thing on fans’ minds this Saturday is whether Rafa will stay.
The talks have been going on since last Thursday and the longer they last the more chance there is that Rafa will walk away and not sign.
Fans also talk about Sean Longstaff and the imminent bid reported to be coming from Manchester United of £20M or £25M.
If we wait a year that valuation could be £50M and we should still not sell.
And some fans wonder why there’s reporting about transfer targets with Rafa still locked in talks.
Newcastle fans – love Rafa
We are told if Rafa doesn’t sign for Newcastle that life goes on.
We shall see – we hope Rafa signs sooner rather than later and then we can all celebrate and really enjoy following who Rafa will be signing this summer.
Remember – there’s always hope and miracles do happen.

Not too bad if you get 20m for longstaff. Can be spent elsewhere. A reliable winger or two perhaps from the championship. #NUFC need better wing play.

Rafa Benitez has consistently said he wouldn’t tell the #nufc board what to do, so I find it tough to believe this report suggesting he’s demanding £100m in his contract. Still a long way to go in talks, but they need to get a move on.

I suspect the talks between Ashley and Rafa are finished.. They won’t agree ashley won’t change now after 12 years… We will hear no more until Rafa leaves at the end of his contract #nufc

Aye 20m for a young English tallent who performed better than most of what was on show whenever he played. There’s not a chance in hell #nufc will sell him for 20m.

One of our many good looking players.
He’s a good looking bastard alright Beth! Fortunately – for me at least – an even better footballer! #nufc

I think Ashley is trying to get a deal completed to sell the club, then for the new owners to announce Rafa has signed a new 5 year contract and can sign and sell who he wants! #NUFC
