Newcastle United haven’t played a football match since winning 1-0 at Southampton on 7 March, with the Tyneside club waiting patiently like everyone else to fulfil their remaining fixtures of the 2019/20 season. However, by the time that the Premier League season resumes, perhaps we’ll have seen a change of ownership take place and consequently a new manager could soon be at the helm.

Most of the Toon Army would begrudgingly admit that Steve Bruce has done a commendable job at St James’ Park considering that United sit thirteenth in the table and a full eight points clear of the relegation zone, with the manager having been an unpopular appointment before managing to weather the storm and steer the team to mid-table.

That said, the majority of fans don’t regard Bruce as a long-term solution at Newcastle and it appears that the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia are close to agreeing a deal with current owner Mike Ashley which would finally see the club rid of someone who has become increasingly unpopular due to his reluctance to invest further funds into the squad.

Should the consortium get over the line with their takeover in the next few weeks, it’s heavily likely that £310 million purchase won’t just end Ashley’s time on Tyneside but also herald the exit of Bruce as manager, PIF being one of the world’s wealthiest sovereign wealth funds and that could mean the club becomes a far more attractive proposition.

Bookmakers' Next Permanent Manager Markets

Next Permanent Newcastle Manager

It’s pretty clear that the vast majority of Newcastle United supporters would like to see Rafael Benitez return to the club and the Spaniard is now trading as the 4/6 favourite with Paddy Power and Betfair, with the 59-year-old having previously enjoyed a highly successful stint with the Tyneside outfit.

Benitez is currently the manager of Dalian Professional in the Chinese Super League and his contract with the club isn’t due to expire until the winter of 2021, although the former Liverpool coach could have his head turned by the possibility of managing Newcastle under fresh ambitious owners who want to see the team compete at the top end of the Premier League.

It’s clear that the Madrid-born manager holds the Magpies dear to his heart after a stint between 2016-2019 where Benitez resurrected the fortunes of an ailing team and got them promoted back to the Premier League, with the supporters forming a connection with a Head Coach who was permanently at loggerheads with Ashley and ultimately chose to leave of his own accord.

Interestingly, former Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce has been speaking publicly about how overrated Benitez is as a coach, although the supporters didn’t take to the former when he was at the St James’ Park helm and would be delighted if PIF take over and then find a way to lure the Spaniard back to the north of England.

Max Allegri Second Favourite for Newcastle Job

If we had a pound for every time Massimiliano Allegri gets linked to a Premier League managerial role, we’d have at least £20 by now. The Italian has clearly not been short of offers since stepping down at Juventus FC although it’s not clear as to whether the 52-year-old has a desire to return to football management or has simply decided to pursue other interests.

If the former is correct, then you would imagine the new Newcastle owners-to-be would be sounding out Allegri’s representatives considering this is a man who achieved five consecutive Scudetto titles with the Old Lady of Turin between 2015-2019. In addition, he landed four consecutive domestic doubles and enjoyed the best win percentage out of any manager in the club’s history.

Allegri’s football management has thus far been confined to Italy, although one would imagine that he feels there is nothing left to achieve in his homeland and perhaps the Newcastle position would be attractive considering that the Magpies haven’t been close to challenging for a Premier League title for over twenty years.

Paddy Power make the Italian a 5/2 chance to be announced as the next Newcastle United manager and that would clearly be an ambitious appointment which would signal that PIF have aspirations to create a team who is capable of challenging for major domestic honours. Allegri will surely only want to be in charge if there is potential silverware to be won.

Pochettino Could Be a Good Fit For Magpies

A year ago, it would have seemed crazy to think Mauricio Pochettino could become the next manager of Newcastle United, although the Argentine is another free agent who has been patiently biding his time since parting ways with Tottenham Hotspur last autumn. Just a few months previously, Pochettino had steered Spurs in the 2019 Champions League final before a defeat against Liverpool.

The former Southampton manager has continued to keep a public profile since stepping down at White Hart Lane and seems to have ambitions to remain in England, with Pochettino available at odds of Betfair to replace Steve Bruce at St James’ Park and set about rebuilding a squad with the aim of making Newcastle a top-four entity in the Premier League.

Pochettino is still regarded as a high calibre manager who resurrected the fortunes of Southampton before doing the same with Spurs and the majority of Tottenham fans were against him leaving the club when he did. It’s clear that he can put a long-term plan into good effect and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if the South American decided to take the opportunity should it come his way.

Gerrard Could Be a Lively Outsider at 25/1

Steven Gerrard remains committed to Glasgow Rangers for the time being, although he’s made no secret of his ambition to manage south of the border and his final destination would ideally be Liverpool. However, this is a long-term exercise considering that Jurgen Klopp is lifting the club to great heights right now and the scouser might regard Newcastle as the ideal stepping stone.

Gerrard isn’t exactly experienced as manager although the fact that he chose to cut his teeth at a hugely-supported Old Firm outfit speaks volumes for his bravery and willingness to demonstrate his credentials as quickly as possible. He will also feel as though a lot has been learnt during his time at Glasgow.
