The Everton fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern are discussing reports linking an experienced manager with a move to their club.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Rafael Benitez has emerged as a potential replacement for Roberto Martinez should the club decide to dispense of his services.
Benitez will be available this summer should Newcastle United be relegated from the Premier League at the end of the season due to a break clause in his deal at St James Park.
Martinez is under increased pressure at Goodison Park following a season of underachivement and with the fans now against the once popular Spaniard it appears that his time at the club could be up at the end of the season.
Our landlord here in the Tavern feels Benitez would be an ideal candidate to replace Martinez and has brought success at the club’s he has managed, and one the Everton fans would no doubt be happy to have at their club.
The Everton fans in The Tavern are delighted to be linked with Benitez and feel he is exactly the sort of manager the club should be targeting.
