Benitez 'would listen' to Italy offers

Despite his poor spell at Inter, Rafa Benitez’s agent assures “we’ll take offers from Italy into consideration” after rumours of Roma and Napoli interest.

The interim manager is set to leave Chelsea at the end of the season, most likely to be replaced by Jose Mourinho.

There are reports today that Roma and Napoli have Benitez in their list of candidates for the bench next term.

“At the moment I have not received any offers from Italy, as Rafa is concentrated only on the Europa League,” agent Manuel Garcia Quilon told Calciomercato.it.

“If any interesting offers were to come in, then we would take them into consideration.”

Benitez spent six months at Inter in 2010, winning the Club World Cup but running into numerous problems with players and directors.

He left the Nerazzurri by mutual consent in December 2010 and took over from Roberto Di Matteo at Chelsea in November 2012.

Roma are considering the future, as interim Coach Aurelio Andreazzoli took over from Zdenek Zeman in February.

Napoli are waiting for Walter Mazzarri to make a decision on whether he’ll stay at the Stadio San Paolo, but there were also reports today they have approached Marcelo Bielsa.
