Liverpool heighten interest in Real Madrid's Robben

Liverpool have reportedly increased their interest in Real Madrid winger Arjen Robben after it was revealed rivals Manchester United have become involved. Reds boss Rafael Benitez is believed to be very keen on the Dutchman but may be put off by the £18million price tag Madrid have placed on him.

Man Utd would have no troubles paying that price if they decided to as Sir Alex Ferguson has yet to spend any of the £80million-Cristiano Ronaldo money.

It looks likely that Robben will return to the Premier League as he has fallen out of favour under Manuel Pellegrini but his destination is still unknown.
