Benitez rejects West Ham for Madrid

Napoli Coach Rafa Benitez is reportedly in talks with Real Madrid after turning down an offer from West Ham.

His contract with the Partenopei expires on June 30 and few expect him to renew it after two years at the Stadio San Paolo.

English media claimed the Hammers had made an approach for the former Liverpool and Chelsea manager.

This evening Sky Sport Italia note Benitez has turned down the offer because he has received a call from Real Madrid.

Going out of the Champions League in the semi-final to Juventus and losing the Liga title to Barcelona, Carlo Ancelotti is increasingly at odds with the supporters.

It would be a return to Spain for Benitez, who had been linked with the Bernabeu bench in the past.
