If he puts pen to paper on this deal then it would be fantastic news for the Anfield side, at least until Rafa heads for Mars.
FERNANDO TORRES is ready to sign a new £22million deal with Liverpool.
The Spanish striker’s advisors have told the club’s American owners that the player will ignore overtures from across Europe to agree new terms this summer.
That would see the wages of the 24-year-old leap by £20,000 a week to £90,000 — with an extra year added to his existing deal. (News of the World)
This signing would indeed represent a fantastic deal for Rafa and the club as a whole. Hopefully it would nip in the bud any potential swoop from any La Liga giants or other potential suitors elsewhere. El Nino’s injury problems have been the biggest factor in the title chasing demise and a testament to just how important he is to the club. Hopefully Benitez will bring in a proven striker to play alongside the Spaniard so that there isn’t quite so much pressure on the lads shoulders.
