The News of the World says George Gillett and Tom Hicks have put together an ambitious business plan. It includes:
* A guaranteed minimum £20m summer transfer kitty every season for the rest of Benitez’s reign.
* A radical review of the structure of the club, with the possible formation of a new, non-executive board to run Liverpool in the owners’ absence.
* Defensive legend Sami Hyypia joining the backroom staff as player/coach.
* A new deal for Benitez’s assistant Mauricio Pellegrino.
