Former Blues manager could take Newcastle job.
Newcastle United are looking into appointing former Chelsea and Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez as his future at Napoli looks uncertain, according to CaughtOffside.
The Magpies are on the lookout for a replacement for Alan Pardew, who recently quit St James’ Park to take over at Crystal Palace, and Benitez could be one of their more ambitious options.
The Spanish tactician has won a number of major honours in his career so far, including the Champions League and FA Cup with Liverpool, plus the Europa League in a brief stint at Stamford Bridge.
Benitez has recently been linked with a return to Liverpool, and may be keen to leave Napoli to come back to the Premier League.
