Benitez looks to snare a big star this summer!
Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is ready to take a gamble on Real Madrid winger Arjen Robben.
The Daily Star Sunday says Benitez is planning a £20million bid for Real Madrid’s former Chelsea winger.
Robben has been outstanding for Real this season – when fit – and there remains doubts over his ability to stand up to rigours of top-flight football. (tribalfootball.com)
Now this is big news, if indeed there is any truth to it, and it happens to coincide with a good run of form from the Dutchman. Many seem to believe that Rafa is looking for some more natural width down the flanks and Arjen is a fantastic player on his day, even though he does of course have a tendency to fall to the floor at the merest hint of a tackle. Valuations on the winger seem to fluctuate between £14-20m and at 25 Robben still has a lot to offer. Do Liverpool fans think such a move is a good idea?
