Here is an article within the italian online press about rumours of Rafa leaving for Turin. This was quick translation so please excuse any errors. :-)
It is rumoured that Jean-Claude Blanc is trying to convince Rafa Benitez to move to Juventus with immediate effect, while Roberto Bettega is following negotiations with the a possible transitory manager (Gentile or Zaccheroni), with the intention of taking over Ciro Ferrara’s team and hand it over to the Spaniard in July. Reports claim Rafa’s legal team where in Milan to meet the Bianconeri representatives. Another report claims that Jean-Claude Blanc is in Liverpool to meet with Rafa directly! None of these reports have been either confirmed or dismissed by Rafa or Liverpool Football Club.
But it seems that Rafa Benitez, at the moment, is deeply engaged on other fronts. Yesterday, the Spanish tactician hid behind a ‘ not comment’ on the rumours regarding the interest of Juventus, but today the Spanish manager has spoken, albeit about Liverpool. He has spoken about the transfer market: that of Liverpool Football Club.
As can be read on the Liverpool Echo, the Spaniard has declared: ” We must be careful on which moves to make. Not there are many good players available at the moment and we must ponder our decisions. We still have a bit of time, but we will not make any signings until we find the right player for a determined role”. In other words, a Benitez totally (for the time being) focused on Liverpool.
So will we see a last minute super signing and super exit or will we see Rafa pack his bags?
