Reports in Spain have suggested that Rafa could be a target for Real Sociedad in the summer.

The Basque side are said to be looking for a new manager for next season with the Spaniard a leading candidate for the role.

On Twitter, supporters were pretty annoyed by the constant rumours surrounding the boss’s future at the club:

Verdict:

A lot will depend on Mike Ashley. There’s no doubt that the club are keen to keep Benitez, but if the current ownership remains in place, and no takeover happens, there would certainly be more doubts over whether the manager will stay.

If he is given a bigger transfer kitty, which is certainly not guaranteed with this owner, then I think Rafa maybe open to a new contract to stay for longer than his deal that runs out at the end of next season.

He has built this club back up with very little help from the board, and if he is given a freer rein, who knows what could happen?
