Rafael Benitez’s talks with Newcastle owner Mike Ashley are set to go into the weekend.
Rafael Benitez is due to meet Newcastle owner Mike Ashley over the next 48 hours in a bid to decide on his future.
What the papers say With Eden Hazard yet to publicly announce his decision on his Chelsea future, the club are keeping tabs on Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho, the Mirror reports. Rumours continue to swirl around links between Hazard and Real Madrid, and should the 28-year-old opt to walk away from Stamford Bridge, the Blues could look to Coutinho as a replacement, the paper says.
In the end it was fitting. A title race which stood out for the remarkable consistency of the two contenders ended with both finishing with victories – enough for Manchester City to retain their crown. City were perhaps less than comfortable as they fell behind at Brighton but if anything it probably helped as they awoke from an early lethargy and ran out 4-1 winners.
