Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be disappointed to hear some of the latest reports coming out of the club involving one key man.
It has been no secret that the situation revolving around Rafa Benitez has been one of the biggest concerns for a number of the locals in the bar and there will be some concerns that developments have not been happening.
The Spaniard wants a new deal to remain with the Magpies, however, he wants reassurances from the board about the club’s transfer business and will not sign a new contract unless he is given a competitive budget this summer, and he is not getting them according to a report in the Shields Gazette.
As with the locals in the bar, Benitez is growing frustrated at how slow the talks are progressing, having started before the season ended and do not look to be close to agreeing to a deal.
The Newcastle fans in the Tavern will be desperate to see Benitez sign a new deal at St. James’ Park and will be frustrated that his future still has not been resolved as they head into the transfer window.
The Toon Army will have wanted to have already started to bring a number of additions in this summer, however, with the current situation, it looks as though they could be late to the window once again.
