​Benitez prioritises Newcastle talks over Marseille, Roma

Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is still committed to renewing with the club.

Benitez has issues about the availability of transfer funds and wage funds for strengthening the team.

But he is putting a priority on renewing, despite interest from clubs such as Marseille and AS Roma, according to theChronicle.

Benitez has a proposal for how he wants the summer and next season to go. If owner Mike Ashley agrees, he will continue at the club.

The Spaniard does not want another season where he is keeping the team right above the relegation places.
