However, as he awaits Manchester United boss Mourinho's arrival at St James' Park on Sunday, Newcastle counterpart Benitez insists all the talk off the pitch is largely irrelevant. "We're trying to improve that, and the competition will be good for them".
"I'd be very happy if I could stay here longer".
"So, I think the natural effect is that he will have his [new] contract and he will be a Manchester United player for years".
"We are thinking "great", and then we have this play or situation and we make a mistake and after we make a great save or something".

Manchester United have kept clean sheets in five of their last six Premier League games.
But Mourinho is making a focused effort to change tack at a time of refereeing scrutiny, such as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp's anger towards officials after last weekend's frenetic 2-2 draw with Tottenham.
"We know where we are in the league, so all the players are focused, working hard and concentrating on this game".
Alexis Sanchez has eight goals in his last 10 Premier League games against newly-promoted sides.
Probability of away win: 57%.
