Newcastle's Next Manager Revealed?

Following Steve Bruce's departure from newly-rich Newcastle United, it seems a certain manager has become the favourite to be the face of the club's new chapter under its Saudi Arabian ownership.

'For The First Time, Ronaldo Looked Like a 36-Year-Old'

It was confirmed on Wednesday that Bruce had left the club by mutual consent, with a host of tacticians having been linked with the post since the Magpies' takeover two weeks ago.

According to The Telegraph, former Roma manager Paulo Fonseca has been on the new owners' shortlist for some time, and is now likely to officially land the job.

Here is where Newcastle's new owners rank among the richest in the Premier League: 

The ex-FC Porto manager was reportedly contacted by Newcastle's bosses months ago as they discussed which direction the club should go in.

Fonseca, it is claimed, held talks with Tottenham Hotspur towards the end of last season when Jose Mourinho was relieved of his duties by the north London club, but ultimately could not reach an agreement with the Lilywhites.

The 48-year-old is said to have the backing of shareholder Amanda Staveley, who is considered by many to be the face of Newcastle's takeover.

Fonseca was born in Mozambique in 1973, but only ever played club football during his career as a player before he ventured into management.

Here are some more high-profile bosses linked with Newcastle:
