The Spaniard is out of contract at St James's Park later this month and could move to the Far East
Rafael Benitez is "considering" leaving Newcastle United to manage in the Chinese Super League, as reported.
Apparently, the Spaniard offered 12 million pounds a year to manage Dalian Yifang in the Far East.
And Sky Sports is now reporting that Benitez is taking their proposal seriously.
The 59-year-old is out of contract at the end of June and has been linked to a return to Chelsea to succeed Maurizio Sarri, headed by Juventus.
The owner of Magpies, Mike Ashley, offered Benitez an agreement to avert the interest of the Blues, but an agreement seems less and less likely to be completed.
As a result, Liverpool's former coach should leave the Northeast after three years in command. And now it seems that China will be its next destination.

Although Newcastle was demoted when Benitez was the first to take the lead, he led them to automatic promotion in his first attempt, before the 10th and 13th placements arrived in the Premier League.
Dalian has won only three of his 13 league games so far this season under South Korean coach Choi Kang-hee.
