Newcastle fans expecting Benitez to leave

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez has admitted that his club will more than likely have to sell players before they are able to spend this summer.

Ki Sung-yueng has moved to St James’ Park on a free transfer, while Kenedy has arrived on loan from Chelsea to boost Newcastle’s squad ahead of the new campaign.

The Magpies are still desperately short of options, however, and it seems that Benitez will find it difficult to boost his squad until players are sold.

It does seem to be an incredible situation for a club of Newcastle’s size.

Whilst West Ham United have splashed the cash to considerably improve their squad this summer, the Newcastle fans appear to be in for another frustrating summer.

Speculation surrounding the future of Benitez continues to drag on, and a number of Newcastle fans have insisted that they would not blame the Spaniard if he walked away.
