Rafa Benitez would jump at the chance to make a return to Newcastle.

That’s according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, who has claimed that the former Magpies boss would love to come back to St James’ Park, but only as long as their proposed takeover happens first.

Benitez left the club last year after a falling out with Mike Ashley and has watched from China – where he is managing Dalian Yifang – while Ashley tries to sell Newcastle to Saudi Arabian buyers.

That deal has fallen through, but Balague has insisted that Benitez is keen on coming back to the north east having left with “unfinished business”.
