£200 million? No! Rafa Benitez isn’t asking for much, but is without doubt the Magpies can challenge for trophies, if “the right things” are done.
The relegation race is all but over, and Newcastle have survived, sitting 13th on the League table with 38 points, 10 more than 18th placed relegation side Cardiff City.
Benitez, has hailed the club’s ‘massive’ potential, but has demanded they make some changes to aid in the battle ahead. The manager has often been linked with a move away from the club following several transfer discrepancies and a lack of financial backing which has left him unhappy.
Newcastle put up an impressive away performance, as they saw off Leicester City, and it seems the manager is seeing a better future with Newcastle, and has asked that the club do what’s necessary to help them back to the summit of the competition.
“I have been trying to win titles everywhere, in different countries,” Benitez told Sky Sports.
“We have to have a team who can compete. This city, the club has potential. It’s massive. I’m not looking to spend £200million, but doing the right things.
“You can do everything right with your tactics, but the other team has one player that can make the difference. You’d have to pay £30m to buy a Leicester player.”
