A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a post from NUFC HQ, which has relayed a report from Football Insider regarding Rafael Benitez and his potential move to Everton.

Newcastle's all-time top League goalscorer is but how many goals did he score for the club?

It claims the Spaniard has been told to avoid the Toffees’ job and that Benitez was getting cold feet over the role after Everton fans expressed their disappointment at the news that they were going to appoint him as their next manager.

It has since been suggested that Everton have withdrawn their interest in the former Newcastle and boss.

However, it was this initial report that got these Toon fans talking.

I wouldn’t have him anymore”

They don’t deserve him”

Rafa 50 games 15 wins 13 draws 22 defeats, bruce 16 wins 13 draws 21 defeats… Rafa is no talisman. Loves to try and park the bus with no other options, awful manager”

@ronsmollett

Are you pleased Everton aren't appointing Benitez?

Yes, he could still come back

Yes, he could still come back

No, I don't want him back

No, I don't want him back

With Benitez not taking the Everton job, he is still available for job should the proposed takeover eventually go through.

This post continued to draw in many Newcastle fans who had their say.

Imagine if he comes back to Newcastle now and wins something.”

I wish he would take the Everton job so once the takeover has gone through we can get an attack-minded, non-negative football manager”

@mickyjohnston39

“The Newcastle job isn’t available and won’t be for the foreseeable future as Ashley loves Bruce and there is no takeover happening so he might as well take the Everton job”

@PaulProud3

So it looks like Benitez’s wait for a job goes on, while a potential dream return to Newcastle is still a possibility.
