Mike Ashley will offer Rafa Benitez 17 million euros
The Magpies are not doubting for a second that they will need to increase the salary of Rafa Benitez should he sign a new contract. But of course, it will not be quite as good news as Newcastle supporters might think....
According to the Sun, Newcastle will offer Benitez a salary of 17 million euros. However, he will sign on for just one sole year.
This will not be the ideal situation for Rafa Benitez, who would prefer a much larger contract. However, it is thought that the significant funds will persuade Benitez to stay at Newcastle.
