According to this source Benitez is once again considering a swoop for this accomplished every smiling full back!
Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is reviving his interest in Argentina international Gabriel Heinze.
Benitez was blocked from signing Heinze by Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson 18 months ago, which led to the defender moving to Real Madrid.
The People says Benitez is now preparing a new offer for Heinze in next month’s market. (tribalfootball.com)
Sir Alex did his best to prevent the Argentine full back from moving to Anfield but there is little he can do about it now and in many ways the former Man United man could be just what the Anfield club needs. The 30 year old could be available for as little as £4m and would helpfully resolve the issue created by the poor form of Andrea Dossena who at present is just about hanging onto his Liverpool career. Aurelio has put in some decent performances but is still some way short of the quality that the club needs to maintain their title push. Heinze left the Old Trafford outfit under a cloud of anger but he arrived at the Bernabeu and promptly helped them to the La Liga title. Would Reds fans be pleased if Rafa signed the Real Madrid left back?
Brand New Feature. (1-10 scale, One = Pure make believe, Ten = is a transfer all but complete)
