Former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is being lined up for a return to Valencia.

The Daily Mail says Benitez, who left Inter Milan in December, is being lined up for a shock return to Valencia.

Before winning the Champions League with Liverpool in 2005, Benitez won two La Liga titles and the UEFA Cup in his three-year stint at the Mestalla.

Los Che president Manuel Llorente is reported to be lining up Benitez to replace current coach Unai Emery.

Emery is under huge pressure after their dismal defeat to Real Zaragoza on the weekend.
