THREE to leave Liverpool for £32m: More cash for Rafa to splash!

It seems the future of this Anfield trio is well and truly in the balance!

JUVENTUS are set to make their first official move for Xabi Alonso this week after the player hinted he fancied a move to Italy.
And Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez is hopeful that his £16million valuation will be matched as he continues his quest to maximise his assets to build more transfer funds.

Liverpool’s former West Ham star Yossi Benayoun is a £6m target for Manchester City and Portsmouth.
The winger has been told he will remain a squad player at Liverpool next season but says he still wants to stay at Anfield.

Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp wants Benayoun to put pressure on John Utaka on the right of midfield, the News of the World says.

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes has a minor rebuilding job on his hands at Eastlands and wants Benayoun to add creativity to his midfield. (Lancashire Evening Post)

Whilst I understand that Rafa wants cash for new signings, I think that each of these players still has something to offer the club. The selling of Riise and the removal of Kewell from the squad were totally understandable, and there are three or four others who can equally do with being offloaded (I think Liverpool fans know of who I speak). However, Crouch, Alonso and Benayoun are all very talented players who have specialised abilities that can be used over the long season. What do Reds fans think, should Benitez rethink these sales?
