Juventus wants Benitez

The Sun says the Turin club will try to sign Benitez in the New Year, if they continue their poor form this season.

Benitez could be interested in a move to Italy as he has still not signed a new contract with Liverpool, despite one of the club owners insisting they wanted to extend his deal seven months ago.

Tom Hicks wanted to extend Benitez’ contract with a year.

Benitez admitted: “I would prefer to have a long-term contract and then you can have a long-term plan.

“I’ve always said I want to stay here for many years, and I still have the same idea.”
