Could the Merseyside gaffer be considering such a move?
Real Madrid will offload eight first team players at the end of the season.
A 5-0 aggregate defeat to Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League has set the alarm bells ringing at the Bernabeu, and drastic action is on the cards.
Reports claim Los Blancos will get shut of Royston Drenthe, Fabio Cannavaro, Jerzy Dudek, Gabby Heinze, Michel Salgado, Rafael van der Vaart and Javier Saviola. (fansfc.com)
Yes he had a horrible game against Liverpool and yes he used to play for the arch enemy but Benitez likes Gabriel Heinze and the Argentine can still cut it at the club in my opinion. Sir Alex stood firm and didn’t allow Heinze to move to Anfield but would surely be powerless to stop Rafa from nabbing the 30 year old now. Yes Aurelio has been in good form lately and Insua is coming along nicely and then there is of course Dossena but i would rate former PSG man as better and of course he can also fill in at centre back if needed and wouldn’t cost the earth. Would Liverpool fans welcome such a move?
