Rafa’s agent denies Juve speculation

The agent of Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has moved quickly to rubbish reports in the Italian press that the Spaniard has agreed a four year deal with Serie A giants Juventus, starting this summer.

Manuel Quillon Garcia said the Reds manager has not even spoken to any other clubs, with Real Madrid also said to be interested in aquiring his services.

Garcia announced, “There is no agreement with anyone.”

Benitez currently has three years left on his current deal at Anfield after signing a new four year deal this time last season. But after a bad season on the pitch for the club, his position has come under increasing pressure.

Recently Benitez signalled his wish to stay at the club for the remainder of his contract, whilst newly appointed chairman Martin Broughton confirmed his support for the former Valencia coach.
