Liverpool boss Benitez to have £55M for market

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez could have up to £55 million to spend this summer - despite the club's American owners warning over the size of his transfer budget.

With Liverpool making £29m from their run to the Champions League final, plus the Sky TV and Premiership prize money to come, Benitez can expect £40m plus to spend this summer.

With maybe £15m from the sale of fringe players, including a possible fee from Marseille for Djibril Cisse, Benitez can bolster his cash kitty considerably.
