Rafa Benitez and Newcastle still in talks: This is the Spaniard’s demand to board

While discussions are ongoing, both parties are hopeful a formal agreement will be reached sooner rather than later.

Some supporters have grown anxious at the delay in confirming Benitez’s continued presence or otherwise.

Although sources close to the talks have insisted there is nothing sinister in the protracted nature of the negotiations, which were always expected to last weeks rather than days.

The fact that the former Liverpool and Real Madrid manager did not exercise his right to walk in the immediate aftermath of relegation is a reflection both of the effect public support for his appointment has had on him, and his belief that he can restore the club’s fortunes given the right backing.
