Newcastle United fans here in the Tavern will be praying that their side can secure a European spot next season, with the summer transfer window being of huge importance.
The Magpies struggled to ensure consistency last season, so Rafa Benitez will be looking to work on this before the start of next season. However, it appears as if he is a possible managerial target for another Premier League club, as according to Sun Sport, Benitez was considered as an alternative to Claude Puel.
Worryingly, Rafa Benitez was considered as an alternative to Claude Puel, but Brendan Rodgers is more likely.
Indeed, the Spaniard has already said that he will be staying at St James’ Park this season, but with talks about a new deal seemingly making very little progress, perhaps Benitez will look for a shocking escape route.
Sadly, after receiving interest from West Ham United prior to them appointing Manuel Pellegrini, it looks as if supporters now have a reason to be worried once again.
Both Leicester City and Newcastle United will be looking to push for a European spot next season, so they may develop a rivalry in their quest to secure a place in the top-six. Many of our local northerners are feeling rather stressed after hearing that Rafa Benitez is a possible target for the Foxes, having been considered as an alternative to Claude Puel.
