Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern have already had a concerning transfer window with plenty of uncertainty looming over St James’ Park, however, they could see things change in the near future.
Rafa Benitez’s future has been a key talking point for a number of weeks and the locals are hoping to see him sign a new deal in the near future. The Spaniard has just one year left on his current deal but he remains committed to the project at the Magpies.
It is believed he wants certain assurances from the board with regards to the transfer window and, according to reports, he is confident he will get the majority of them should he sign a new deal. The Northern Echo are claiming Benitez is under the impression that Mike Ashley will give him a lot of what he is asking for once he commits his future to the club.
The recent news will delight the Newcastle locals in the Tavern as they believe that Benitez has not signed a new deal yet due to the uncertainty surrounding the future of the club and a lack of financial backing from Ashley.
However, if he were to get those assurances then there should be no reason why Benitez will not sign a new contract, which would undoubtedly help kick-start Newcastle’s summer as they seek to bring in new players who possess the ability to significantly strengthen the first-team squad.
