Rafa makes plans in case the worst happens!
Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is eyeing Inter Milan midfielder Esteban Cambiasso.
AS says should Benitez sell Xabi Alonso to Real Madrid, he will compete with Manchester City for Cambiasso.
City offered £15 million for the Argentina international last week, with personal terms worth £5 million-a-year. Inter, however, rate Cambiasso in the £25 million class.

As discussed previously I believe that Cambiasso is a terrific player who would go some way to replacing Xabi Alonso if the Spaniard were indeed to move to Real Madrid, now we can add into the mix the fact that megabucks Man City have decided to get into the fight.
Mark Hughes has approached just about every living footballer so far this summer and has been beaten to the punch on many high profile players and they could once again be given short shrift by the Inter Milan midfielder.
Jose Mourinho will be loathed to lose Esteban but the figure of £25m may well make them think about such a sale, whether Rafa makes such a move is unknown but he is an admirer of the Argentine international.
