Liverpool close in on Madrid’s Saviola

Transfer Speculation

Liverpool hope to complete the £5m transfer of Javier Saviola from Real Madrid next week states today’s Mail. The article claims that “Rafa Benitez is keen to sign the Argentina international nicknamed the Rabbit who joined Madrid on a bosman free from Barcelona two years ago. The 27-year-old, who has scored 12 goals in 44 internationals, has struggled to establish himself at the Bernabeu and has been told to vacate the No 9 shirt, which will be worn by Cristiano Ronaldo next season.” The article also goes on to claim that Madrid intend to offload up to 10 players to help fund their spending spree which could reach £260m. It also says Saviola could be offered as part of a (yawn) “renewed bid” for Xabi Alonso. Saviola's current contract with Real ends in 2010.
