Newcastle boss Benitez demands £100M summer transfer budget

Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez is demanding a huge transfer budget if he's to stay with the Premier League new boys.

The Sun says he wants £100million to revamp his Newcastle squad.

The Toon boss could quit unless owner Mike Ashley delivers the war chest and promises him full control on recruitment.

Benitez threw his future into doubt following Monday's promotion-clinching win over Preston when he said “you never know" after being asked if he would be in charge next term.

The former Liverpool and Chelsea boss will demand a meeting to discuss his summer budget after the final game against Barnsley next Sunday.
