The Athletic article states it’s a no go as Rafa never breaks a contract.
It’d be interesting though. I feel given he’s a local he’d want to at least show we are on the right track before we are leaving. Otherwise both Reds and Blues would have grievance with him.
I've just read Louise Taylors article on the Guardian website, this paragraph is most interesting :
"Until fairly recently Rafael Benítez, Bruce’s predecessor, had been earmarked to return to Newcastle. The much-decorated Spaniard has joined Everton but the consortium still retains the benefit of his detailed, intelligent plans for a club he knew inside out and shares a similar taste for forensic detail. Newcastle fans are often stereotyped, erroneously, as hopelessly romantic and deeply unrealistic but one of the reasons they adored Benítez was his attention to the small print."
Could be interesting times ahead. Newcastle will pay our manager much more than we do plus he has the opportunity to catapult himself into the big leagues. In a way it mirrors Ancelotti going back to Madrid. Interesting times ahead.
