Today’s match against Manchester United at Anfield will decides Liverpool’s title ambition after losing four on the trot. Some quarters were venting their anger on the manager for the recent bad run of games. Do you think it is fair to blame it solely on Rafa Benitez?

How about the eleven players on the playing field? Aren’t they’re paid to do what they do best on the field?

The Reds defender limped off after just 15 minutes of the pre-season clash with Atletico Madrid but the boss revealed his decision to replace his vice-captain was purely precautionary.

Liverpool FC confirmed yesterday evening that Alberto Aquilani has successfully completed a medical and agreed a five-year contract with the club. Aquilani cost Liverpool £20million from AS Roma.

The Italian is unlikely to make his Reds debut before October. The player will now continue his rehabilitation from an ankle operation under the guidance of Liverpool's medical team and is expected to be fully fit in approximately four to eight weeks' time.

Alberto Aquilani Reds boss Rafa Benitez identified the Italy international as the ideal replacement for Xabi Alonso, who joined Real Madrid for £30million earlier this week.

He made 147 appearances for Roma since his league debut against Torino in 2003 and has won 11 caps for Italy.

Former Liverpool left-back, John Arne Riise backs Aquilani to be successful in the Barclays Premier League.

  "When I first came to Roma, I didn't know a thing about Aquilani,"

"I knew all about Francesco Totti, Daniele De Rossi and Philippe Mexes, of course, but Aquilani was the player who surprised me the most in my first months with what he could do.

"He's really good on the ball, with good passing, good movement, he works hard and is a good professional.

"He likes to have the ball at his feet but not because he likes to dribble, he just wants to keep the team moving. He never stands still, he's always on the run.

"He certainly runs more than Xabi and is probably more dangerous in terms of getting in the box and trying to score goals.

"When I came to Rome he was my neighbour and helped me out a lot. He's a good friend. Liverpool will be getting a very good player." – Riise, LiverpoolFC.tv.

The Reds had also been linked with Wigan's Lee Catermole and Valencia's David Silva.

The England international striker has officially signed for Manchester United in what is this summer's shock move in the transfer market. He has signed a two-year contract.

The Red Devils have confirmed the striker's capture on their official website, and Owen is clearly delighted to have completed such sensational move.

Michael Owen United manager Alex Ferguson was pleased to have reinforced his forward line, depleted by the recent departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and the imminent exit of Carlos Tevez.

Owen will now link up with friends and former England colleagues Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand, as he looks to put himself back in the frame for Fabio Capello's England squad with the World Cup only a year away.

I’d like to wish him and Manchester United all the best.

Real Zaragoza have completed the signing of winger Jermaine Pennant after his release by Liverpool at the end of his contract.

The former Arsenal youngster passed a medical with the Spanish outfit on Thursday and will join their bid for survival next season after being promoted back to the Primera Liga Division.

The 26-year-old becomes Zaragoza's first signing of the summer and joins on a three-year deal.

  “I wanted to come to Spain and I had offers from important teams in Europe but joined Real Zaragoza.”

“I really want to get started and do well in the league.” – Jermaine Pennant.

Pennant spent time on loan at Portsmouth last season after being frozen out at Anfield.

The former England Under-21 winger impressed for Liverpool in the 2007 Champions League final defeat by AC Milan but found opportunities increasingly limited from then on.

I don’t know how’s true are the press rumours surrounding former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen, 29-year-old, signing for Manchester United? Owen’s contract at Newcastle expires on July 1 and are free to join any clubs.

The Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, was poised to make an astonishing move in the transfer market by bringing injury-prone striker Michael Owen to Old Trafford on a free transfer.

The likes of Karem Benzema and Franck Ribery, who both targets for United has snubbed the Red Devils for Real Madrid recently and what irked Sir Alex even more are Carlos Tevez will not sign for United after being offered a contract.

Owen would welcome a move to United because it would give him the chance to prove himself at Champions League level and also bolster his chances of regaining his place in England head coach Fabio Capello's plans for next summer's World Cup finals.

Michael Owen With the luxury of £80million at the disposal of Sir Alex, he only managed to sign Antonio Valencia from Wigan for £16miliion. United could offer Owen a lucrative contract deal, matching his wages at Newcastle, which stands at £115,000 per week.

Everton has dropped out of the race to sign the out of favour England international as they could not match his salary demand. Although, Owen, who will be ready to accept a dramatic drop in wages, has already attracted public declarations of interest from Stoke City and Hull City while Tottenham and Portsmouth are also understood to be keen on securing the services of a striker who has fallen from grace during his time on Tyneside.

Should Owen join United - where he would also get the chance to team up with England striker Wayne Rooney - he would plug one of the gaps in the United ranks cause by the departure of two of Ferguson's so-called 'Fab Four' in the shape of Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez. At the same time, ends his relationship with all the Anfield’s fans.

The former Manchester United and England skipper, Bryan Robson, is confident that Owen can still prosper in the upper echelons of the game despite his recent problems since his £17million move to Newcastle from Real Madrid.

  "Michael is a natural goal-scorer and natural goal-scorers who can do the business at the highest level are few and far between,"

"I definitely think that he is capable of being a Champions League striker because he's only 29 and he has still plenty of good years left in him yet." - Bryan Robson, Telegraph Sport.

Liverpool is also in the market for a backup striker. Is Rafa going to make a last minute offer for Michael Owen? I would love to hear your thoughts and leave your comment here.

Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli insists the Serie A giants are not interested in signing Liverpool midfielder.

Speculation is rife that Juventus have joined the race to sign Xabi Alonso, who they tried to tempt to the Stadio Olimpico last year.

  “For the midfield, there are many names. But Xabi Alonso's not one of those",

"I read in the press about our interest for him. He's a good player, but I think that saying I've read his name in papers is where it ends." – Cobolli Gigli.

I'm going there - Xabi Alonso Cobolli Gigli also revealed that Juventus are still interested in Udinese playmaker Gaetano D'Agostino despite their bid hitting several stumbling blocks.

However, Cobolli Gigli claims they are not in the hunt for Alonso, who has also been linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Juventus wouldn't be able to match the amount that Real Madrid would bid, which is rumoured to be between £25m and £35m, with it now looking increasingly like the Spanish international is actually going to be leaving Anfield?

Liverpool have agreed a deal with Greek side Panathinaikos for the sale of winger Sebastian Leto.

The Argentine spent last season with rivals Olympiacos after work permit problems prevented him playing for the Reds.

Leto signed for Liverpool in August 2007 after Rafa Benitez beat the likes of Real Betis and River Plate to his signature. The 22-year old made his competitive debut in a Champions League qualifier against Toulouse on August 28, 2007 - one of four senior games.

Rafa has decided to cash-in on the player as he looks to trim his squad and raise funds for his own transfer plans.

Meanwhile, Ryan Flynn is set for another loan move away from Anfield this summer. The 20-year-old midfielder enjoyed a productive spell at Wrexham last season as he scored four goals in 21 appearances.

Rafa believes another temporary switch will aid the youngster’s development and a number of clubs are chasing his services.

Liverpool midfielder wants a move to Real Madrid sorted out before July 19 according to reports.

Xabi Alonso has flown back to Spain after the Confederations Cup in South Africa and immediately went into talks with his representative Inaki Ibanez, to have his future sorted out before he is due to meet up with his team-mates ahead of a tour of Asia.

  "I don't know what will happen. The clubs now have to negotiate."

“It is always positive when various teams are said to want you because that is better than nobody being interested, but I cannot say much more,” – Xabi Alonso, Spanish newspaper AS.

Alonso has so far refused to come out and publicly make his intentions clear. Rafa Benitez wants to keep Alonso but accepts there is little he can do if the player wants to leave.

“I know that I have to keep playing well and will be able to decide what happens next whenever it arises.

“I do not think a move to Real Madrid is impossible, but I would also have no regrets at all staying at Liverpool.

“My relationship with Benitez is professional. I’ve already been in England five years and the truth is that I have adapted well.

“I’m happy there, though I do miss certain things from Spain. I cannot rule out a move or even staying in the Premier League.” – Xabi Alonso

Xabi Alonso Benitez will held a face-to-face talks with Alonso this week after scoring the winning goal for Spain against South Africa. The press interview during his involvement at South Africa has puzzled us and Liverpool. Alonso did not gave his assurances about where his future lies after the Confederations Cup.

Benitez does not want to lose either Alonso or Javier Mascherano, but if Alonso is keen for a Bernabeu switch, he wants the player to publicly come out and state his intentions.

Real Madrid has submitted a £30million bid for Alonso but Liverpool will not do business if the bids are lower than £35million, according to the sources from Spain.

Hopefully, Benitez can persuades Alonso, a player he’s trying to offload last summer, to stay put at Anfield.

Liverpool will make an official approach to sign Valencia forward, David Villa, according to the Spanish press. Just a day after Villa revealed to the Spanish television that he’ll not leave Spain at the moment.

  "A week ago my future was clear and now it's not.,”

"I've been through some tough moments, which are partly my own fault, but I decided to put it all aside and I've not thought about it in the last five days.

"When I said I had taken a decision it was true, and this decision is that next season I will play in Spain because it is the league that is best for me.

"I will not go abroad." – David Villa, Spanish television statement.

David Villa If this rumours are true. We wonder where Rafa got the money to funds such a move? Could it be the co-owners, who finally pumping in the money? George Gillet Jr., Liverpool’s co-owner, has recently sold his US assets, Montreal Canadiens, his National Hockey League franchise in a deal worth £330million to Molson. Tom Hicks are still continues to search for a buyer for his Texas Rangers baseball franchise.

All of the worst possibilities, Rafa has agrees to sell Xabi Alonso, Alvaro Arbeloa, Sebastian Leto and Charles Itandje. The four players’ fees can be recouped and it’s known to be worth £42million altogether.

Liverpool will have to contest with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea for Villa’s signature. Can Liverpool snap up the most on form striker on the planet and forms the most lethal striking partnership in the Premier League?

Sebastian Leto is set for Anfield departure after reports in the Greek media has mentioned Liverpool have accepted a bid from Panathinaikos.

According to the reports, the Greek club has bid in the region of £3million for the Argentinian midfielder.

Leto has spent last season on loan at Olympiakos, after problems securing a work permit to play in Britain and made 22 appearances for them.

Leto, on loan at Olympiakos Leto was signed from Lanus for £2million in summer 2007, he made a couple of pre-season appearances and played in the Champions League qualifier against Toulouse but problems with his passport saw him only play in the reserves for the whole of his first season in England. He since gained an Italian passport but was rejected a work permit.

Leto won’t be the last of Anfield’s departure this summer. Even though, Rafa has mentioned, “We can sign one more player if necessary, but that’s without any players leaving”, when asked about the signing of Glen Johnson earlier.

Andriy Voronin, Alvaro Arbeloa and Andrea Dossena, all are available and expected to leave for the right fees. Hertha Berlin make an U-turn on Voronin, who has spent last season on loan and scoring 11 goals in the Bundesliga. The German club are keen to sign Voronin on a permanent basis.

With Real Madrid waiting on the wing to access the Alonso’s situation at Anfield. They will make a bid for Arbeloa and Liverpool are prepare to listen to their offer. We have learned that Rafa will not sell Arbeloa on a cheap, with the right-back who still have one-year contract left at Anfield. The Reds demands £6million for the Spanish international fullback.

The press has reported that Juventus have made an approach to Liverpool on the availability of Andrea Dossena. The Italian left-back, who failed to hold down a regular place at Liverpool, would like consider his playing future sooner rather than later as the World Cup 2010 just around the corner.

Another player who is on the departure list are Charles Itandje. Malaga are reported to have made contact with Liverpool in regards to French keeper.

With the Anfield outfit also boasting Diego Cavalieri among their goalkeeping options, they are willing to discuss a possible deal for Itandje.

By clearing all the mentioned deadwoods, Rafa can increased his transfer funds by £25million. Hopefully with the amount recouped, Rafa will be able to sign a star player.

Glen Johnson has signed a £1000,000 a-week, four-year contract at Anfield after Portsmouth accepted his £17.5million transfer fee. Manchester City has made a last attempt to sign Johnson with a lucrative contract offer which prompted the Reds to revised their offer.

This deal has made Johnson one of the club’s highest earners and could fetch as much as £21million at the end of his contract.

With Chelsea are willing to match Liverpool’s bid for the England defender, Rafa admitted that his capture of Glen Johnson was more than he wanted to spend on a full-back.

  “Sometimes you have to spend a little bit more.

“You can’t compete in the top four of the Premier League unless you spend some money.

“We were looking for a player of quality and also somebody who is British because of the new Champions League rules.

“Glen Johnson fits both categories.” – Rafa Benitez, Liverpool Echo.

The player has agreed a deal with the Reds and is expected to formally put pen to paper in the next 48 hours.

Rafa also mentioned that Johnson may not be the last new face at Anfield this summer.

  “We have a plan,”

“We can sign one more player if necessary, but that’s without any players leaving.”

It is interesting to see who will Rafa sign next?

Liverpool are now resigns to loosing their midfield maestro and a right-back to Real Madrid after the Reds announced the captures of Glen Johnson from Portsmouth.

Xabi Alonso Real Madrid are prepared to pay Liverpool £30million for Xabi Alonso and £8million on Alvaro Arbeloa. Liverpool are reluctant to sell his players to Premier League rivals, Chelsea and Manchester City, who are also interested in signing the Spanish defensive midfielder.

Benitez will now concentrate on trying to keep Javier Mascherano, despite Barcelona's interest, and will use the funds from Alonso's transfer to continue re-building his team.

While, on the youth’s development, the Reds has snapped up Rushden & Diamonds, Aaron King, 16-year old striker on two-year scholarship deal at Anfield and will continue his education at the club.

Two days earlier, Liverpool have beaten Real Madrid and Barcelona to the signature of Cadiz teenager Jesus Fernandez Saez. The 16-year old will sign a five-year contract with The Reds.

Cadiz will be paid compensation and, although a figure has not been specified, it is believed to be more than the payment due to the Spanish team to take over the player’s academy contract.

Chelsea has planned to hijack Liverpool’s deal but were foiled after Glen Johnson chooses the Reds over the Blues.

Despite interest from former club Chelsea and Manchester City, Johnson, 24, made it clear that his heart was set on a move to Anfield and he passed a medical and quickly agreed personal terms on a four year contract.

Johnson will now become Rafa Benitez’s first major signing of the summer, in a deal which is believed to be worth around £17.5million. But Johnson's impending arrival would seem to suggest Alvaro Arbeloa will be sold to Real Madrid sooner rather than later.

Rafa has sorted out his problematic right side of defence, now he can concentrate to strengthen other key areas of his team’s formation.

I bet Johnson will do a good job for us. What do you think of his capture?

Barcelona has been courting Javier Mascherano this whole summer and his agent, Walter Tamer met with officials of the Spanish club on last Wednesday. Mauricio Pellegrino, Liverpool’s first-team coach told Sport.es;

  "Every time negotiations are underway, money always makes the decision"

"Anyway, Mascherano is such an important player for us, like other ones can be for Barca.

"I do not want to say anything about it because we already know that in football's world, nothing is impossible." – Pellegrino, Sport.es.

So fellow Reds, is it a good idea to let go Javier Mascherano this summer?

Former Liverpool chairman David Moores has resigned from the Club's Board of Directors. Moores will, however, retain his position as Club Honorary Life President.

David Moores Moores, whose family became one of the richest in Britain with the creation of the Littlewoods empire, took the role of chairman in 1991.

However, with the club in need of increasing investment he sold his majority shareholding to current American owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks two years ago.

The move proved to be an unpopular one among fans after the pair borrowed £350million to finance the takeover and then grand plans for a new stadium were continually delayed.

Moores himself admitted last year he felt "heartbroken and let down" by the owners, and his disappearance from the board follows the decision by chief executive Rick Parry - who helped negotiate the takeover with Gillett and Hicks - to step down this summer after 12 years at the club.

Time for the current co-owners to bring out their cheque books. They came with promises of bringing Liverpool Football Club forward but until now we still back tracking, lacks of big-names signing.

So here are my suggestions;

  • David Villa - £45million
  • David Silva - £30million
  • Glen Johnson – £18million
  • Luis Antonio Valencia - £17million

Total spending - £110million

And ship these players out of Anfield;

  • Sebastian Leto - £2million
  • Andrea Dossena - £6million
  • Andriy Voronin - £8million
  • Charles Itandje - £5million
  • Ryan Babel - £8million
  • Alvaro Arbeloa - £8million
  • Jack Hobbs (already sold to Leicester) – undisclosed, estimated around £1.5million
  • another £7million Peter Crouch’s transfer fee

Total recouped - £45.5million

Total funds needed from the co-owners, another £44.5million after minus the promised £20million for Rafa’s spending. If Rafa can convinced Alonso to stay, then let Mascherano go for £35million should increased Rafa’s coffer and the co-owners just need to give Rafa another £9.5million on top of the £20million.

Spending £30million a season are considered the lowest among the big four team in Premiership. Last season, Manchester United was able to splashed £32million on Berbatov alone. It’s time for Rafa to wave his magic wand again, we can trust Rafa to sell his flops soon.

 

 LIVERPOOL XI

Reina

Johnson – Carragher – Skrtel – Aurelio

Alonso

Valencia – Gerrard – Silva

Villa – Torres

You must be wondering why sell Arbeloa? If the Reds do signs Johnson, Rafa must sell before buy. Philipp Degen won’t attracts any suitable club after he was sidelined for the whole season through injury. Degen would be the cover for right-back position.

The probabilities of Javier Mascherano leaving are very high, if Barcelona are willing to pay £35million for him. But in order for Mascherano to leave, Rafa must keep Alonso. If both of them left, it would be a disaster!

Why bring in Valencia? Well, the Reds hasn’t had an out-and-out right winger for a long time. Dirk Kuyt has done relatively a great job for Liverpool last season but the formation are still unbalance without a proper winger.

David Silva, aren’t we all hope he’ll sign for us? Getting rids of Babel and Dossena has freed up the left-hand side of midfield with Albert Reira as the backup left winger for Silva.

David Villa, the on-form striker at the moment. His partnership with Torres on international level are phenomenal. Linking him up with Torres at Anfield, we are the team to beat next season.

All of these are just my two cents. If Liverpool do get the right players in on time before the season kick-off, the painful and long wait for a league championship will be over soon. Come home number 19.

In the recent heat of rumours, Xabi Alonso has fuelled further damage to his future at Anfield. The 27-year old midfielder are on international duty with Spain at Confederations Cup this month.

He has answered a journalist’s question in a recent interview after being asked whether he would be disappointed to start next season at Anfield?

  "I cannot respond to that. But each player thinks about their own future.

"It's clear that on the outside there are reports about your future, but you cannot do much and the only thing you can do is train normally." – Alonso, Mirror.

This has indicated that he’s still haven’t told Rafa Benitez of his intention to remain at Anfield for the next season despite the released official statement by Liverpool.

This news came in the wake of another Liverpool’s midfielder being court by a Spanish club. Are Liverpool going to loose their two most influential midfielders this summer? What are your thought on Xabi Alonso leaving Anfield?

Liverpool should have sealed the deal for Portsmouth’s right-back this week but Chelsea is about to hijack the deal by matching the Reds’ £17.5million transfer fee for Glen Johnson according to Portsmouth executive chairman Peter Storrie.

  "The matter will come to a conclusion at the beginning of next week. I do not have a preference over the move, it is up to Glen,"

"The deals are almost identical so it really is down to him and what club he prefers, which one is going to pay him more money.

"Glen wants to play regularly in the Champions League, he has got himself back in the England side so I understand that. Sometimes you have to be fair to players."

"It's a big year for him with the World Cup coming up,"

"Playing Champions League football will make him an even better player than he is today." – Peter Storrie, Team Talk.

Glen Johnson The Blues doesn’t want the England international fullback who played for Chelsea between 2003-2007 sign for their arch-rival. Chelsea sold him to Portsmouth for £4million back in 2007 will need to forked out £13.5million extra to get him back.

Even though £17.5million are very steep price for a defender, Liverpool actually paying around £10.5million for the 24-year old right-back. Portsmouth still owing Liverpool the two-part instalment for Peter Crouch’s transfer known to be around £7million.

While on other transfer news, Andrea Dossena’s future at Anfield are still in doubt after the Italian left-back hinted his desire to stay with Liverpool for another season. According to the player’s agent, Juventus are set to make a decision on Dossena next week.

Arsenal has made their first summer signing among the big four. The Gunners signed Thomas Vermaelen from Ajax in an undisclosed fee and it is reported to have been in the region of £10million plus add-on.

Glen Johnson Still no news on the transfer front from Liverpool after the club made an official statement that they are not going for Spanish players as suggested in the press’ speculation.

But Rafa Benitez has been looking for fullback to cover for Alvaro Arbeloa since last term. With Philipp Degen entrusted into the hall of croak, Rafa need to break his defence’s formation if Arbeloa out injured.

Rafa is keen to sign Portsmouth and England fullback, Glen Johnson since January transfer window. Portsmouth is reported to hold onto the £18million fee and whoever can match the asking price, Johnson can leave Fratton Park. Chelsea unwilling to match the fee for a player they sold for £4million two years ago has been dropped out from the race to sign Johnson.

Liverpool’s major obstacle are Manchester City with their fat wallet. City could offer Johnson an irresistible contract where Liverpool can not. All Rafa can do is to use Peter Crouch’s outstanding money which could be around £7.5million as a leverage point. Liverpool can pay £11million plus write-off the outstanding from Crouch’s fee to land the right-back.

The growing speculation and rumours from the press linking Liverpool’s midfielders has blown out of proportion. Those stories published on the press has affected the players and therefore Liverpool Football Club has issues an official statement on liverpoolfc.tv website.

Below are the following statement taken from LFC’s website;

"Despite repeated media speculation on the futures of Xabi Alonso and Javier Mascherano, Liverpool has received no official approach or offer from any club regarding the players.

"Neither is for sale and furthermore Liverpool has no interest in the long list of Spanish based players being linked with a move to Anfield as part of any deal."

Until any concrete offers has been received by Liverpool, so in another words translated from the statement above are “So you f@#*ing idiots, stop printing all those nonsense.”

David Silva, Alvaro Negredo, Alberto Bueno or Samuel Eto’o can stay where there are at the moment as Liverpool are not interested with them at the moment.

The Italian international fullback that Liverpool bought from Udinese last summer maybe heading back to Serie A soon. Andrea Dossena failed to live up to his expectation in English league are pondering a move to Juventus but Rafa Benitez hopes he’ll stay for another season according to Dossena’s agent, Roberto La Florio.

  "We have spoken with Liverpool and with Benitez and we received confirmation that the club are keen on holding onto Dossena,"

"However, we all know what the market is like and when a certain offer comes along then negotiations open up.

"So far, neither we nor Liverpool have been presented with an offer but we did have contact with Juve last year.

"Dossena is fine in England. He would be happy to return, but under certain conditions. Juve are making their own evaluations and they will contact us if they are interested. We will wait." - Roberto La Florio, Sportal.

Rumours from the Italian press has suggested that David Trezeguet are willing to take a pay cut to join AS Roma. And what tickles me most are that Trezeguet being linked with a move to Anfield in a possible deal for Dossena.

Well, David has past his prime, 32-years old soon and does Rafa willing to gamble on him? Remember Fernando Morientes? Rafa may have keen to sign him on loan from Juve during 2006 campaign but what do you think about ‘Trezegol’ donning the red for us?

Xabi Alonso

Real Madrid just confirmed the captures of Cristiano Ronaldo for a £80million world's record transfer fee. Real’s second signing after Kaka, has putting the alarm bell over the future of Xabi Alonso at Anfield yet again.

After splashing a staggering £136million on Kaka and Ronaldo, Real Madrid do have the resources to launch another big money signing. Liverpool heavily in debt, could the board resist the £30million offer for Alonso?

So in the latest poll on Red's Fury™, I ask for your thoughts on the prospect of selling Xabi. Vote below!

Should Liverpool let Alonso go?

Liverpool FC and Rafael Benitez has moved in to dismissed the speculation surrounding Javier Mascherano moving away this summer.

"Mascherano has no price,"

"Barcelona could not afford to match his value to Liverpool Football Club.
"We do not want to sell and Javier is very happy here.

"I have spoken to Javier two or three times this summer – the last time was only last week – and he was very happy, very positive.

"He gave me the private number of his agent, Walter Tamer, and again the conversation was very positive and was all about football.

"Walter told me that two clubs with big, big names were asking after Mascherano – and I told him to forget it, that Javier was happy in Liverpool and he was not for sale.

"So I was surprised to see the agent's comments today.

"He has a long contract and any club can forget about bidding for him. They can offer £40m or even £50m, we don’t want to sell." – Rafa Benitez, Liverpoolfc.tv.

While, Rafa will definitely keeping Mascherano at Anfield but the future of a Spaniard are still hanging in the balance. After Manchester United agreed to sell their prized asset to Real Madrid last Thursday, Alonso will be featured in Florentino Perez’s wish-list of building another era of Galactico.

I expect Liverpool wouldn’t accept nothing less than £30million for Alonso’s fee.

Should Liverpool let Alonso go to Real Madrid? Have your say here.

A comment made from Walter Tamer on Catalan radio station RAC-1 has angered Liverpool’s manager, Rafa Benitez as he contempt to keep his squad together for next season.

"If a club like Barcelona want to bring you into their ranks after having completed such a brilliant season and having won everything, obviously as a player you are going to say 'Yes, I want to play there'.

"It is an honour for Javier that a club like Barca pay such close attention to him, especially after the incredible season they had. I believe that a transfer would be feasible. If Barca really want him, he will sign for them.

"He would have a very easy job at Barca. Sometimes we talk and joke that the only thing he has to do is run, rob the ball, and pass it on to all the superstars in front of him."

"What if Xabi Alonso also leaves? Surely, Rafa Benitez would not want to have both his central midfielders go. It will be difficult, although Xabi's future does not depend on Mascherano and vice-versa,"

"The transaction would certainly happen, but the first to leave will have more options." – Mascherano’s agent, RAC-1.

Aren’t we fed-up with these kind of rumours? First, Xabi Alonso linked with a move to Real Madrid and now Javier Mascherano to Barcelona.

Rafael Benitez was furious at the the papers’ claimed Liverpool lodged a bid for Napoli’s Ezequiel Lavezzi.

"We never contacted Lavezzi and we have no intention of doing so,"

"We want to put a stop to these rumours." – Rafa Benitez, Daily Mail.

Ezequiel Lavezzi Now this says it all. Liverpool weren’t shopping for this Argentine ace, while more headache for Rafa to dealt with as Barcelona just made a ludicrous claims that our midfield ‘monster’ would not pass up the opportunity to join them.

More on this paper’s talk later. Unbelievable!

We have heard so many times Rafa has stressed in his interviews about his ‘very’ intension of keeping the Liverpool ‘spine’ intact. But the interest from Real Madrid and the money-spender Manchester City on Xabi Alonso just don’t take the heed.

Well, the press these days are very difficult to trust. I mean, how bad are the relationship between Rafa and Xabi at this point? We all know that Rafa made a mistake and want to forced Xabi out of Anfield last summer but that didn't happened.

Will Rafa going make the very same mistake twice? The papers saying Liverpool has slapped a £30million price tag on Alonso and whoever pay more than the asking price gets Xabi. It is interesting to see Real will pay over the odds and prise Alonso from us. With £30million, there could be only one thing on Rafa’s mind, swooping for David Silva from Valencia.

I rather have them both at Anfield rather than seeing one of them make way for the other. On the other hand, City just after snaring Barry under our nose will try they luck in luring Alonso to the Eastlands.

I do hope Liverpool, Rafa and Alonso settle their differences once and for all. These are the story made-up to unsettle the true contender for the league title. I will have faith in Xabi that he’ll stay with us next season.

Andrea Dossena After becoming the first Italian to join Liverpool Football Club last season. Andrea Dossena are ready to return to his native country.

Life is hard for him in the Premier League and to make matter worst, he’s downed in the pecking order with both Aurelio and Insua ahead of him.

“Before coming back to Italy I talked to Benitez and explained to him my doubts.

“I told him I wanted to leave. He is an exceptional person and understood my problem.

“He told me that if they receive an offer that satisfies both the club and me, he will take it into consideration and try to facilitate my transfer.

“I would run to Juve. They showed interest in me last year, but then Liverpool stepped in and wrapped things up in less than an hour.

“Of course I would accept an offer. You’re talking about one of the biggest clubs in Europe.” – Andrea Dossena.

Since his £7million switch from Udinese last summer and made just 12 appearances for the Reds. There are no major contribution from the Italian international who capped seven times for Italy apart from his goals again Real Madrid and Manchester United.

Rafa would love to recoup around £6million from Dossena transfer and Juventus is reportedly keen to sign the left-back.

Deja vu, anyone? Unless, Rafa Benitez managed to sell some of his flops between now and 31 August. We may not going to see any new signing for next term.

Liverpool last year financial report shown that the parent company, Kop Football (Holdings) Ltd, made a loss of £46.2million. Despite all the reports suggested that Rafa was given £20million to spend in the transfer market this summer and it's evidence that Rafa doesn't have that kind of money available.

Long term transfer target, Gareth Barry took the train down to the Eastlands and talks stalling for David Silva has given us the idea on how much Rafa have in his pocket now. With credit facilities amounting to £350million which expire on 24 July 2009 still under negotiation, Rafa may not even have the money for Sylvain Distin.

What do you think on this situation?

The Daily Post reported that Liverpool has pull out of the interest in Valencia’s midfielder after the Los Che outfit demands £30million.

David SilvaAs we all aware, Rafa Benitez is given £20million to spend on new players this summer by the co-owners. Unless, Rafa can offload some of the players in time before Real Madrid and Barcelona enters the bidding war.

Valencia deep in financial crisis with almost £500million in debt need to cut loose of its star players.

"It is true that we were asking about the situation with him but we are not happy with the situation now and he will not be a target for us.

"We have to work hard and we are trying to have conversations and trying to progress but it’s not easy to sign any player now.

"The most important thing now is to make progress with the contracts of our own players.

"We are working hard on that because this is our priority." – Rafa Benitez, Daily Post.

Rafa also squashed any speculation on David Silva’s team-mate Raul Albiol. The Valencia defender was not on Liverpool shopping list despite speculation suggesting otherwise.

"He is another good player but he is not our target," – Rafa Benitez, Daily Post.

Liverpool will not do business with Valencia, if they do not reduce the transfer fee for David Silva.

Do you think David Silva worth £30million? My opinion, he should be tagged in the region of £20-24million.

Rafa Benitez and Liverpool better act fast before the next transfer target move elsewhere after Gareth Barry signed for Manchester City on Tuesday.

Chelsea boss, Roman Abramovich is reported to be welcoming back fullback Glen Johnson from Portsmouth. Chelsea are prepare to re-signing the fullback for £17million.

What can Rafa do with the £20million transfer fund? Clearly £17million for a defender seems overrated. To match the money power Chelsea had, Rafa can throw-in a cash plus player for Johnson. How about £10million plus Andrea Dossena or £13million plus Philipp Degen?

But I’ll doubt Portsmouth would be tempted to accept our offers as a straight cash of £17million from Chelsea seems very hard to resist.

Michael Owen Newcastle United were relegated and been put up for sales for the second time. It seems like they no longer afforded a £110,000-a-week player in their roster next season.

So, where is Michael really heading to? Liverpool or Everton? Earlier last month, Rafa Benitez has denied Liverpool making a move for Owen.

"I think it's a different situation to the Robbie Fowler one. Robbie knew it was a fantastic opportunity for him to come back.

"He had been injured and had not played games in a row. And we were looking for a striker of his quality. We were looking for this kind of player.

"He understood clearly what his role was. Michael is younger and still has a lot of years to play, so it is a different situation.

"Clearly he's a top class striker so he will want to play every game. But at this moment we are really pleased with Fernando Torres." – Rafa Benitez, Daily Star.

While our neighbour across the street are understood to be keen on luring the former Liverpool striker to Goodison Park. Report suggested that Everton prepared to rescue Owen from Championship football by tabling a near £50,000-a-week contract.

David Moyes has shortlisted Owen as a possible summer recruit, despite the player’s injury problems and the patchy fitness records of Everton forwards Louis Saha, Yakubu and James Vaughan. Since Owen can certainly leave Newcastle on the ‘Bosman’ rule, Everton still need to pay £4million in terms of wages and signing-on fee, which considerably a good buy for them.

Will Owen takes the pay-cut and say ‘yes’ to Everton?

Gareth Barry More news on Gareth Barry. The speculation of Barry becoming a Liverpool player is over. He’s officially completed a move to Manchester City yesterday.

Manchester City have confirmed the £12million signing of Gareth Barry from Aston Villa, with the England midfielder penning a five-year deal.

City manager Mark Hughes is banking on the midfielder's experience in the domestic and international arena to take the club to the next level.

"Gareth is widely acknowledged as one of the top midfielders in the Premier League and that is a recommendation in itself.

"When players of his quality become available then you have to be in the market for them so we are absolutely delighted that we have been able to conclude this deal.

"The experience required to compete with the best in the Premier League is vital.

"With Gareth we get the experience of someone who has played week-in, week-out in the hardest league in the world.

"He plays at a level that has an impact on the game and we are thrilled that he is joining us." – Mark Hughes, Tribal Football.

This transfer which came as a surprise to all of us. Barry earlier been reported he’d like to join a team with Champions League football, signed for a club which has the brightest future in challenging the top four clubs in England next season.

I think this transfer has been materialised due to the fact that City was able to offer Barry a huge pay rise. City have not even qualified for next season's revamped Europa League. Who could afford to missed out on a £80,000-a-week salary?

I’m glad the chase is over now.

Carlos Tevez The uncertainty of an Argentine forward has led to clubs from England and Spain vying for his signature. With limited transfer fund, Rafa Benitez is unwilling to succumb to the demand. Hence, Manchester City with million of pounds at their disposal went ahead of this race.

But the player’s future at Manchester United will be decided by tomorrow.

The Times says Kia Joorabchian, whose companies own the economic rights to Carlos Tevez, is expected to meet David Gill, United chief executive, tomorrow to resolve the situation. If United agree to pay the £25.5million required to secure the permanent signing of Tevez, the player will have a decision to make.

Why? He wasn’t happy with United’s attempts to drive his transfer fees down and has been a benchwarmer for the biggest football final in Rome last month.

Manchester City more than willing to pay the asking price and would also be able to offer Tevez vastly inflated wages. Although Liverpool fell short behind, Chelsea and Real Madrid are also interested in bolstering their squad this summer.

Will Rafa Benitez still want to deal on this little Argentine or he could raise his bid for another Argentine?

They have rejected Liverpool’s offer for the sensational Argentine striker once. Now the player’s agent, Alejandro Mazzoni said Napoli are willing to sell if Liverpool increase the fees.

“Today there is an offer for the player and I have the impression that the club wants to sell him.

“I would like to stress that Napoli are important to Lavezzi, but we are talking about an English club in the Champions League and, moreover, they are offering him three times what he earns now.” - Alejandro Mazzoni, Vital Football.

Could Ezequiel Lavezzi be the final pieces of the puzzle we’re looking for? Or will he be another Mark Gonzales in the making?

Lavezzi has formed a formidable partnership with Hamsik since joining from San Lorenzo two season ago. The Argentine international has scored 16 goals for Napoli.

Liverpool were not the only English club scouting Lavezzi, Chelsea and Manchester City are interested in the Argentine ace too. So, if Rafa really want to swooped this player, he better make that offer sooner rather than later.

"He had a very good season for us and can be an important player in the future. There is no agreement with Real and we want him to be part of our plans going forward.

"Xabi himself told our club magazine only two weeks ago that he was looking forward to his sixth season as a Liverpool player. Why should he want to leave now?" – Rafa Benitez, Liverpoolfc.tv

David Silva (center)Today’s most potential transfer rumour that gets likely to materialise this summer is the transfer of David Silva to Liverpool FC.

David Silva has refused to comment on speculation that he will either join Liverpool or Real Madrid this summer.

"I have to be focused first on recovering [from a thigh problem] to be able to help my team and I'm not thinking of anything else,” said Silva, as Valencia prepare to face Athletic Bilbao for a place in the Europa League.

"I don't know anything about the rumours and I insist that I have a contract with Valencia that I wish to fulfil." – David Silva, Setanta Sports.

Silva has been linked with a move to Anfield for the past 18 months now. Certainly, we do need to fine-tune the squad with a player who can linked up the midfield and attack. With Valencia in deep financial crisis, no Champions League football for them next season. The Mestalla outfit will need to sell its prized assets to stay on the business.

A player in the calibre of David Silva wouldn’t want to settled for a second fringed Europa League. To be not involved in the biggest club competition in the world, will most likely to increased his desire to leave La Mestalla.

Will Rafa move in on the £20 million midfielder? Only time will tell, who knows maybe Rafa can picks up a bargain or two from his former employer.
