“We are negotiating with Inter to rescind the contract,” confirmed Rafa Benitez's agent this evening.
The rapport hit a brick wall after the Club World Cup victory when he set a ‘back me or sack me' ultimatum.
“We are negotiating with Inter to rescind the contract,” agent Manuel Garcia Quillon told Sky Sport Italia.
“We have not yet reached a definitive conclusion. Tomorrow we will meet again and continue with the negotiations to find a solution.”
It is now practically official that Benitez has been in charge of his last game for the Nerazzurri.
The details are a problem, as it's suggested a termination could cost Inter €8m.
