Real Madrid set to swoop for Liverpool boss Benitez

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez

Real Madrid are set to make a sensational move to snap-up Rafa Benitez as their next manager.

Current boss Manuel Pellegrini has reportedly been given two games to turn their season around for the Spanish giants after a poor run of form despite having secured the services of some of the world’s best players.

Madrid have won just one of their last five games and were hammered 4-0 by third division Alcorcon in the Cup on Tuesday night.

Pellegrini will probably have to lead his side to victory against Getafe on Saturday and at AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday to save his job.

In between, Madrid bosses will attempt to find out if Benitez would be willing to jump ship amid further boardroom and financial chaos at Anfield.
