Chelsea boss Benitez welcomes Real Madrid rumours

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."
