However, despite speculation that Amanda Staveley is close to making a bid on behalf of PCP Capital Partners, Benitez is concentrating only Saturday's home clash with the Eagles, who finally opened their Premier League account with a shock win over Chelsea last weekend.

With Roy Hodgson's side now on a high, and dreaming about turning their season around after their campaign started with seven consecutive defeats without a single goal scored by the Eagles, it could be a very hard game for Newcastle. I made a decision to stay because the potential of the club, the city, it is massive.

"I am the manager, I concentrate on the football and ensure my players concentrate on what happens in the game against Crystal Palace".

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez is refusing to allow excitement at the prospect of a takeover cloud his judgement as he looks to kill Crystal Palace's recovery in its infancy. "I don't say that because of the fans or the city, it's because you can see when you compare to other clubs you can see the potential is there". "My concentration has to be on the players and the preparation".

Despite their abysmal start to the Premier League season, we have always felt that Palace weren't really ever that bad and just needed to kick start their engine to get them firing again.

"You have to put a lot of things together".

"When you watch (Newcastle) play you can see it's a team which has obviously had some work done on it".
