Hamburg midfielder Rafael van der Vaart is a target for Premiership giants Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.

The News of the World says Anfield boss Rafa Benitez is the latest to show interest in the 25-year-old playmaker.

Megabucks Chelsea are already on his trail.

And United will turn their attention to Van der Vaart if Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Old Trafford for Real Madrid.
