Newcastle will have to pay £9 million to secure Brendan Rodgers

Newcastle United are still waiting for their first win in the current Premier League campaign, with relegation already a worry at this early stage. 

The Magpies suffered a 1-0 home defeat against Brighton and Hove Albion yesterday, with things going from bad to worse at St James’ Park. And, it now appears as if Newcastle will have to pay above the odds to secure a potential replacement for Rafa Benitez, as according to Sun Sport, Celtic will demand £9 million for Brendan Rodgers.

Brendan Rodgers comes with a stunning £9 million compensation price tag.

The Celtic boss is on the radar of both Premier League outfits and he could be tempted to end his time in Scotland in the near future.

Newcastle’s woes continues in the top-flight of English football, so a managerial change could be in the offing with Mike Ashley tasked with making a big decision.

THE VERDICT:

Newcastle United could do with freshening things up at St James’ Park, with the Magpies seemingly heading down a blind alley under the guidance of the Spaniard.

Although, £9 million compensation is a steep figure when you take Mike Ashley’s backing into consideration, so other options could potentially be weighed up if Benitez was to be relieved of his duties.

Brendan Rodgers has secured a number of trophies during his time in Scotland and even managed to lead Swansea City to Championship play-off final delight, so he knows how to win games.
