“The other reason is it’s season ticket renewal time and there are thousands threatening not to renew their season tickets so they had to make a statement. Hopefully it’s the first of many."
He then went on to explain that, regardless of the politics of it all, the club's new 24-year-old should be a great player for the squad.
“Almiron will be a club record and he’ll be a very good signing," he said. "He’s what Newcastle want – a number 10, skilful, left-footed, a bit of pace. He’ll be useful.”
It seems that, for the time being at least, Ashley is prepared to invest properly in this team, and in doing so, may finally convince Benitez that Newcastle is the best place for him to be.
