Guillem Balague has discussed Rafa Benitez’s future on his personal YouTube account and suggested that the current Dalian Yifang manager could return to replace Steve Bruce at Newcastle – but also considered Everton and Liverpool.
Champions League winner Benitez left Newcastle last summer to join Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang, but is already being linked with a return to the Premier League. An impending takeover at Newcastle could see him replace Steve Bruce.
Indeed, ESPN claim Newcastle have shortlisted four managers that they could consider to take over from Bruce – in the form of Mauricio Pochettino, Max Allegri, Dortmund gaffer Lucien Favre and indeed, Toon icon Benitez.
Balague, who is renowned as a Spanish football expert and works for both Sky Sports and BBC, claimed that Benitez could well be on his way back to St. James’ Park – but also considered a return to Liverpool, and a strange move to Everton.
