They claim that the Spaniard is the top target for the Saudi-backed consortium, should their takeover of the Toon finally be approved.
They also state that the club are confident that the takeover will finally go through after the arbitration case set to take place in July.
This has drawn the attention of these Toon fans who are hoping that Benitez returns.
“Rafa with a blank cheque is a fantastic thought but it’s just not going to happen is it.”
“I hope so, he has unfinished business with us.”
Do you think Benitez would come back to Newcastle?
Yes, it is possible
No, he has had his time
This post continued to draw in Newcastle fans who had their say.
“Come home Rafa”
“I would have Rafa over Bruce all day but I would rather us go for a Zidane or Conte if we get this take over please don’t say they wouldn’t come money talks”
“Rafa the best manager in world football without a club!!!! Fact”
“I will cry buckets……”
It is clear that many Toon fans would love to see Benitez back on Tyneside, but it seems as if it all hinges on Newcastle’s arbitration case in July.
