Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter after The Telegraph revealed that Rafa Benitez will leave the club in the summer unless new signings are brought in this month, as the Spaniard reaches breaking point at St. James’ Park.
The former Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid boss is ready to depart the Tyneside club if he does not get the two players he demanded in the January transfer window, with Atlanta’s Miguel Almiron, Juventus’ Moise Kean, Iranian full-back Milad Mohammadi and Lyon’s Martin Terrier mentioned as targets in the aforementioned report.
Benitez would prefer to stay on Tyneside, but feels like his position is becoming untenable having constantly been ignored by Mike Ashley in his pleas for new arrivals.

The relegation-threatened Magpies are set to have another £55million in the bank before the end of the month thanks to television money, but it does not appear that will land in the hands of Benitez to spend on new arrivals.
Understandably, having seen their club constantly neglected by Ashley as they struggle to maintain their Premier League status, Newcastle supporters have grown tired of the situation…
I mean this should come as no surprise to anyone.

He’s the glue. That’s keeping most fans together at present. Tin hats on. When he’s gone and Ashley still at the helm.
