Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to a very worrying update on the future of Rafael Benitez.
According to L’Equipe, via GFFN, Benitez has entered talks with a Lyon-based football agency in order to explore job opportunities in Ligue 1.
The report claims the Spaniard has been offered a two-year deal by Newcastle, but is keeping his options open with Score Agencies now set to represent his interests in France, whatever they may be.
Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below…
Robin Bairner, a European football writer for GOAL.com, has added to the reports by claiming that current Lyon boss Bruno Genesio is of interest to both the Magpies and West Ham.
The Toon Army were less than impressed when Genesio was linked with them earlier this year, and it’s fair to say they aren’t enjoying these latest rumours either.
Benitez has performed seemingly impossible tasks with an infamously tight owner and a Championship-standard squad.
Luke Edwards of The Telegraph claims there is nothing in the reports, but that hasn’t stopped fans on Twitter from freaking out…
