Rafael Benítez to leave Newcastle when contract expires on Sunday

"However, it has not been - and will not be - possible to reach an agreement with Rafa and his representatives." .

Rafael Benitez will leave Newcastle when his contract expires, the club confirmed on Monday.

Writing in his column for The Sun, he wrote: "What the hell is going on at Newcastle United Football Club?"

He told the Newcastle Chronicle: "It looks complete and utter chaos and the lack of communication from the club is embarrassingly bad". Now enjoying time away from football following his sacking by Manchester United.

But those pleas have gone unnoticed, and instead Newcastle are now on the lookout for a new manager.

He continued: "Where is the respect for the thousands and thousands of loyal fans?"

Monk is available following his sacking by Birmingham, where he kept the club in the Sky Bet Championship last season despite a deduction of nine points for a breach of the Football League's profitability and sustainability rules.

Kawhi Leonard has reportedly made his first decision for National Basketball Association free agency, though it's an expected one. However, Haynes is now reporting that people within the league see Toronto as the favorite.

Benitez, 59, was expected to depart after failing to agree a contract extension with Newcastle owner Mike Ashley over the last few months.

Bruce has impressed in his short spell at Wednesday but it is hard pressed to believe that the Geordie faithful would be too happy with his appointment after losing one of the best managers they have had in recent times.

"But for the club to stay silent and seemingly let someone as talented and as special as Benitez leave for free, it really is a awful situation".

Benitez, who had previously spent time in England with Liverpool and Chelsea, took the reins at St James' Park in March 2016.

Benitez brought the club back to the top-flight as Champions in his first full season in charge before reinstalling the club as Premier League regulars.

Newcastle will now kick off the search for a new manager and Grant may be part of the picture as it is claimed the Magpies are considering him for an unspecified role at St. James' Park.
