Benitez to ask for £100m to buy up to SEVEN first-teamers with his Newcastle future still uncertain

Date Posted,April 24, 2017

Rafa Benitez has been assured he will be backed with transfer cash, ahead of crunch talks on his Newcastle United future.

Magpies boss Benitez is set to ask for ­£100million to ­relaunch the club in the Premier League next season after securing promotion on Monday by beating Preston — with as many as SEVEN new first-team players.

But, more crucially, he wants control over who gets bought, so he is accountable for the side’s performance.

Benitez admitted there was still “work to do” ­before ­finalising his future, and hopes that will include face-to-face talks soon with owner Mike Ashley.

Senior club sources reassured the Spaniard and his staff on Tuesday that he will be handed the scope to make United competitive in the top flight.
