Rafa’s wishes may have been granted as his Liverpool bosses appear to be ready to give him cash to help him fulfill a very ambitious double swoop.
Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicks has assured manager Rafa Benitez that money will be made available for transfers this summer.
And that could see the Spanish coach granted his dream of being able to bid for Euro 2008 superstars David Villa and David Silva.
Texan tycoon Hicks is hoping to persuade his business partner George Gillett that the time has come to invest in the Anfield club in search of massive future profits.

This £40m pair would do wonders for the club and, if this report is accurate, then the cash injection would come in handy. Maybe the increase in transfer funds from the Americans will negate the need to offload either Crouch or Alonso. Do Liverpool fans think that this pair are all Rafa needs to complete his summer signings?
