Samp prepare Benitez summit

Reports continue to suggest newly-promoted Sampdoria are in negotiations with Rafa Benitez to take over the team.

The Blucerchiati will return to Serie A after winning the play-offs under Coach Beppe Iachini, but are looking elsewhere for a big name tactician.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Samp have already had some talks with the former Inter and Liverpool manager.

They are planning a crunch meeting on Monday in a secret location, so not in their Genoa headquarters, to outline terms for a three-year project.

Benitez had a brief Serie A experience, terminating his contract by mutual consent after just six months at the helm of Inter.
