BENITEZ WANTED BACK HOME - REPORTS
Rafael Benitez is being eyed up by a series of Spanish clubs, according to various reports in the press.
The Daily Mirror claims that Barcelona want Benitez to take over from Frank Rijkaard in the summer, with the hugely influential Johan Cruyff reportedly urging club president Joan Laporta to ignore Jose Mourinho and opt for the Spaniard, whose position at Liverpool is still far from certain.
The Mirror also report that Atletico Madrid have already sounded out Benitez, and both Real Madrid and former club Valencia - with whom Benitez won two La Liga titles - apparently 'vying for his services'.
The Times says that Manuel García Quillon - Benitez's agent - has been approached by representatives from Atletico, Valencia and Barcelona, but claim Benitez is keen to stay at Anfield, having improved relations with the club's American owners.
However, they report that he will demand significant changes at Liverpool if he is to stay on Merseyside, including spending more money in the transfer market:
'Benítez will ask for considerable backing in the transfer market this summer as he looks to assemble a squad capable of challenging for the Barclays Premier League title. He and his staff are making inquiries about several players and are monitoring the form of others, including David Bentley, of Blackburn Rovers.'
