Inter Milan plan £33m move for Liverpool duo

The Daily Mail reports that Rafa Benitez is set to take over as manager at Inter Milan and the 50-year-old is keen to raid his former club.

Reports claim Mascherano and Kuyt would be open to linking up with their former boss at the San Siro.

Kuyt said earlier this week: “I don’t know for sure who is going to be in charge at Inter, but Benitez is a fantastic coach and would be a great choice for them.

“Working with him is perfect and I am grateful for all he did for me. I was delighted when he asked me to join him at Liverpool, and while we were together, he gave me a lot of good suggestions about how I could improve my game.

“He was good for my career. I have read a lot about what might happen now, if he goes to Inter, but I am just concentrating on the World Cup.

“That is important, because I want to have a good tournament. I have a contract with Liverpool, and I have to respect that, because they are a big club and have been good to me.”
