Benitez is managing in China with Dalian Pro in the Chinese Super League.
But the Spaniard has not been too happy with his time in China, as Dalian are struggling amid a relegation battle.
Per The Independent, Benitez is frustrated in China and wants to get back to Europe.
It is where he believes the game is at the highest level, and he wants in on that action again.
His contract ends next year in China, and then he will look to move to a European club that can compete for trophies.
