Real Sociedad are allegedly tracking Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez ahead of a potential move for the Spaniard at the end of the season.

Real Sociedad are allegedly tracking Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez ahead of a potential move for the Spaniard at the end of the season.

The report from The Mirror adds, however, that Benitez will reportedly look to focus on his Magpies team in the summer, and is only interested in staying in the North-East.

Benitez is understood to be pushing for finances to strengthen his current team, after doing so in January with the acquisitions of Kennedy, Martin Dubravka and Islam Slimani.

The Magpies are seven points clear of the relegation zone, with the newspaper claiming that Benitez is solely focused on securing his side's Premier League status before thinking about future recruitment.

Benitez has previously coached Real Madrid in La Liga, as well as completing spells with Liverpool and Chelsea.
