Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez has welcomed reports linking him with Real Madrid.

Benitez is expected to leave Chelsea this summer and has been touted as a possible replacement for Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid if the Portuguese calls time on his stint at the Bernabeu.

Madrid-born Benitez said of that speculation: "It's clear that I know a lot about the club, as I was there from the age of 13 as a player and then a coach.

"It's nice to be linked in one way or other, but it doesn't make me lose my focus on the present, which is Chelsea."
