Benitez flying to London from Abu Dhabi for Chelsea talks today

Rafa Benitez is on his way back to London today.

The former Liverpool and Inter Milan boss cancelled a television commitment in Abu Dhabi and immediately hopped onto a flight back to England following the sacking of Roberto di Matteo at Chelsea.

Sources in Spain say Benitez is a 'certainty' for the Blues post, where he is likely to sign to the end of the season.

Chelsea insiders say the club are pushing to announce Di Matteo's replacement by the end of business today.
