The Northern Echo are reporting today that there will be further talks between Rafa Benitez and Mike Ashley after yesterday’s round of negotiations failed to bridge the gap between the two men on Rafa’s new contract.

While there are some reports out that seem positive about yesterday’s meeting the report in the Northern Echo, from an experienced correspond (Scott Wilson) – is worrying.

There were meetings yesterday in a secret location in London but they did not reach any firm conclusions – we assume that’s one-way or the other – Rafa to stay or go – but it looks like Mike Ashley is not going to make this easy.



Rondon is one older player Rafa wants to sign and that could be the litmus test on whether Benitez agrees to stay with Ashley still the owner.

Time is of the essence because Rafa’s contract runs out the end of June and there are stories today that behind the scenes last season Rafa was constantly frustrated by the Newcastle hierarchy and the way the club was being managed from the top.

Rafa and Ashey agree it is important to bring young emerging players to Newcastle continuously in the hope that Rafa and his team can develop them into first-team players.

Rafa also wants more freedom as to how he spends the transfer money and is willing to be judged on how he uses the money – but he wants Ashley’s age limits on players relaxed significantly.
