Rafael Benitez admits to his frustrations at Newcastle United

Ben Foster

Rafael Benitez admitted he is "not happy" with Newcastle's transfer business so far as they prepare to make their Premier League return this weekend.

"I think we'll know a lot in a month's time and if he doesn't get what he wants than you might see it starting to unravel".

Rafa Benitez says he's "not happy" after Newcastle United missed out on several transfer targets.

Perez's boyhood club remain the frontrunners to sign their former boy wonder but the player's agent is frustrated that Arsenal want more than the current offer on the table.

But Benitez is unhappy that other Newcastle targets have been missed although he admitted that it has been hard.

"Always in football you need luck, I had the luck when the ball came through to me and then I scored", Atsu said of his Verona strike.

Rick Porcello's Immaculate Inning Sets MLB Record For Most In Season
Rays reliever Ryne Stanek gave up singles to Xander Bogaerts and Mitch Moreland to put runners on first and third with no outs. A bad throw by Austin Pruitt (6-3) prevented a possible inning-ending double play on Rafael Devers' chopper to the mound.

"It is hard for teams who don't have as much money as the big teams".

There was a rumour of a power struggle at Newcastle regarding player recruitment. But if they are available, the price isn't £20million, the wages are not the same, and the commission of the agents is huge.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez met the Brazilian in London on Wednesday while he was attending the Premier League launch and he hopes to sign him before Sunday's opener against Tottenham.

Sky Bet has priced the likelihood of the 28-year-old moving to St. James' Park at 9/4, while the odds on the Spaniard staying with the Gunners are a huge 6/1.

"I will not speak of figures but we have done all we can and understand the importance that I believe Lucas can have in this team next season".

"I'm working very hard with the people in the club to try to improve what we have at the moment".
