Roma president Pallotta targets Newcastle boss Benitez

Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez is being linked with a return to Italy.

Off contract next month, Benitez is yet to settle on new terms as he seeks assurances from management about his transfer budget.

Claudio Ranieri has announced he will leave Roma at the end of the season.

And Il Messaggero says former Napoli coach Benitez is under consideration by Roma president James Pallotta as a replacement.

Along with Benitez, Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini is also being linked with the job.
