Newcastle boss Benitez wants to give Chelsea the blues

Newcastle boss Benitez wants to give Chelsea the blues

It looks to be all change at Newcastle United this summer as Rafa Benitez eyes up a significant revamp of his first-team squad.

And with discussions ongoing with Benitez and United hierarchy about his demands for next season, the former Liverpool boss stated he is unsure "how close we are".

Ashley is one of the more unpopular owners in the Premier League and Newcastle legend Shearer has dismissed the Magpies' owner's promise to back manager Rafa Benitez with transfer funds this summer. "I just want to keep this club climbing as high as we can".

Benitez is now in talks with managing director Lee Charnley about a new contract, with his current deal on Tyneside expiring in 2019.

Working under infamously tough owner Mike Ashley, Benitez has constantly been working on a shoe-string budget, but those he has acquired have by in large turned into great successes.

"The fans have ambitions and we have ambitions, and we have to know if everybody has the same feelings too".

"On many occasions throughout the season they have been described as a Championship side, which I personally consider to be derogatory".

'Finally, I would like to thank the fans for their unrivalled support of Rafa and the team throughout the season'.

Christian Atsu and Ciaran Clark are both ruled out through injury, loan striker Islam Slimani is suspended and winger Kenedy has played his final game of his temporary spell on Tyneside, unable to feature against his parent side.

Meanwhile, Antonio Conte's Chelsea heads into the final day of the Premier League in hope of a miracle to find their way into next season's Champions League football.

My job is to be sure that the players are focused on the last game and if we can do well, I will enjoy the moment.

"Newcastle showed great desire, a great will to fight, a great will to take three points and to finish this season in the best possible way".

"That we can go to any stadium and think about going to win, rather than thinking that a draw might be a good result".
