Juventus Offers Rafael Benitez 16million and Another 70 in Tranfer Funds

George HouseContributor IApril 16, 2010

Juventus are attempting to get Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez to come to Italy by offering him not just a four year deal worth £16million, but an additional £70m to spend in the summer transfer window.

Manuel Garcia Quilon, the Spaniard’s agent, met with a pair of Juventus board members last week to discuss the possibility of Benitez leaving Anfield to join the Italian giants, who are having a disappointing campaign and will look to bring some new faces aboard, according to the Daily Mail .

The two sides also talked about some potential transfer targets for Juventus to buy should Benitez take the job. FIorentina defender Juan Manuel Vargas and Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko, who is also wanted by AC Milan, have been identified as players who Benitez could acquire.

Benitez’s current deal at Anfield ends in 2014, but an offer from Juventus or Real Madrid, who has also shown interest, could sway the Spaniard to leave Liverpool during the summer.
