Former Arsenal boss locked in midnight talks with Newcastle ahead of Possibl Job

Former Arsenal Boss has a big decision to make ahead of taking the possible managerial post at Newcastle

Following his time at Arsenal, the Spaniard has been extensively linked with a return to the Premier League, but he now seems poised to reject Newcastle United.

Villarreal undertook late-night meetings with Unai Emery to encourage him to stay in command of the La Liga club.

Although the Spaniard’s contract extends until 2023, ties to the vacant Newcastle United manager’s role have emerged in recent days, with former Arsenal manager Emery emerging as the frontrunner.

When questioned about the reports tying him with a move to the Premier League, Emery said that he has no knowledge of the issue.

That isn’t the case, and sources currently say that if the post is given to him, Emery will decline it.

Villarreal conducted nocturnal meetings with Emery following their Champions League triumph against Young Boys on Tuesday night, according to our colleagues at Chronicle Live.

The club’s upper management tried to convince him to stay in charge.

Emery is expected to reject Newcastle, according to Spanish billionaire Fernando Roig, who has informed reporters on the ground who follow the Europa League champions on a daily basis.

Furthermore, rumors in Spain claim that Emery is perplexed as to why Newcastle’s shortlist was down to only him and Eddie Howe.

The former Arsenal manager believes Howe’s ideology is diametrically opposed to his own, and he questions if those in command know exactly where they want to go.

There’s also the matter of transfers to consider.

Newcastle currently lacks a director of football, and Emery does not want an impossible relationship to develop later in the season.

Whatever happens, Emery, who spent 18 months at the Emirates Stadium, is ready to follow the rules at Villarreal and work to his full potential.

Meanwhile, Newcastle’s hunt for a new manager continues, and the club might be without a boss for their weekend match against Brighton.
