The £6m contract exit clause is red herring and this is the only reason Rafa Benitez has stayed at Newcastle United.

Sunday morning has brought reports that the Rafa Benitez contract clause has run out.



It is that which has ensured Rafa Benitez has stayed at Newcastle United.



This is the contract clause that has been talked about pretty much ever since the Spaniard agreed to stay on after relegation and certainly ever since that January 2017 transfer window when Mike Ashley refused to allow his manager to sign any players.

There was claimed to be a £6m clause, whereby if Rafa walked out he would have to pay Mike Ashley that amount, the same working the other way if Mike Ashley sacked his manager.

It is that which has ensured Rafa Benitez will stay at Newcastle United and see out his three year contract, before walking away for sure this summer.

There is no way that Rafa Benitez will want two Newcastle United relegations in four seasons on his CV.
