“Bring him home”, “Finish your project” – These Newcastle drool over links with ex-Magpie

Plenty of Newcastle United fans have been drooling over the prospect of former Magpies’ manager Rafael Benitez returning to St James’ Park.

According to The Telegraph, the Spanish tactician is keen to grasp hold of the reins once more, inheriting the hot seat from current boss Steve Bruce and bringing Manchester City defender John Stones and Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley with him to Tyneside.

Benitez is still highly regarded at Newcastle after what had been a turbulent three years in charge and has been linked with the position if the club’s £300m takeover goes through.

Will Rafa Benitez return to St James’ Park?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Despite being relegated in 2016, the Spaniard brought us back into the top flight at the first time of asking and accumulated a points-per-game average of 1.48 from 146 games, as per TransferMarkt.

Benitez sadly left the role last summer after being unable to agree terms on a new deal and went to manage the Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang.

Unsurprisingly, supporters were delighted with the report and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan pleaded with the club to “bring him home”, while another urged Benitez to finish his project.

“Useless like Ozil”, “Cavani is much better” – Many NUFC fans not interested in 305-goal striker

Plenty of Newcastle United fans have been rubbishing any talk that Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain will come to St James’ Park.

The Argentinian forward, who spent last season on loan at Chelsea, did not have the best of times at Stamford Bridge and only managed to score five times in 18 appearances for Maurizio Sarri’s side.

This is a small reflection on what has been a successful career for Higuain, who has been a European success, especially with Real Madrid having scored 122 goals in 264 outings. As well as stints with Napoli, River Plate, AC Milan and his current side Juventus, he has found the net 305 times and played over 43,000 minutes for some of the biggest names in Europe.

Would you bring Gonzalo Higuain to Newcastle United?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With Newcastle’s £300m proposed takeover yet to be officially confirmed, a deal like this could hinge on whether Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund take control of the Tyneside club or not.

As well as Wolves, the Express revealed that we are interested in giving the 32-year-old another opportunity in the Premier League.

With this in mind, supporters were not interested in seeing Higuain in a black and white shirt and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he is “useless like Ozil”, while another said that Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani “is much better”.
