Dubai investor looks to make offer for Newcastle United

Dubai investor looks to make offer for Newcastle United

Rafa Benitez says what's best for him at Newcastle United is also what's best for Mike Ashley.

However, like Amanda Staveley and her Middle East investment fund PCP Capital Partners, they are said to be cautious given the team's position in the Premier League and it is unlikely any formal approach would be made until the club's top-flight status is certain.

Newcastle would only have to pay a compensation fee to Toure's BSC Young Boys, as he's yet to sign a professional deal, and this signing would certainly be one for the future rather than providing an immediate boost to Benitez's attacking ranks.

"And we're not planning to sell anyone who we consider can make a difference to the team".

"I still don't know the budget but we are working on it".

"If they talk about loans, at the moment, we're not interested in loaning (out) anyone, because we need our players".

Relegation rivals West Ham have an interest in Jonjo Shelvey, but the Magpies boss has ruled out letting any player go who has a part to play on the pitch.

They could go seven successive games without a Premier League home win for the first time since a run of eight in a row from December 2008 to April 2009.

"We have a lot of people working, talking to agents, giving us names and options".

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez: "We have done well the last few weeks, but it is a long season, we have an important game and the mentality must stay the same. We will try to do our best until the last day and believe we will do what we have to do".

He added: "They have a new manager". For Swansea's new boss, he will know that he will face an uphill struggle to secure the Swans Premier League status come May. It will be a tough game for us. It is very hard to create chances against them. It will be a massive game for us, a massive game for them.
