Rafa Benitez is being linked with a return to England at Blackburn Rovers.

Benitez's agent, Manuel Garcia Quilon, has confirmed they're now in talks with Inter Milan about rescinding the former Liverpool manager's contract.

Milan sources say Benitez has returned to his homebase on Merseyside to celebrate Christmas and wait for word from Quilon.

The Spaniard is now being mentioned as a possible candidate for the Venky's owned Blackburn.

Rovers have announced Steve Kean will remain in charge until the end of the season, but that won't stop speculation linking Benitez with the post.
