Liverpool star on verge of Stamford Bridge move

Published Add your comment

Liverpool midfielder Yossi Benayoun has claimed he is on the verge of joining Premier League champions and could be joined by Javier Mascherano.

Benayoun has revealed he is hoping to start talks with the Stamford Bridge club soon while contract talks with Mascherano have stopped at Anfield.

With no European football to offer, Liverpool could be forced into selling to rivals Chelsea as their financial situation worsens.

The Blues have also been linked with the Merseyside club’s star striker Fernando Torres but Rafael Benitez would be more inclined to sell his two midfielders before the Spaniard.

With Michael Ballack and Joe Cole likely to leave, Benayoun and Mascherano would be ideal like-for-like replacements to replace the duo.

Benayoun said: “Ancelotti wants me for next season and now everything depends on Liverpool. Chelsea will have to pay some £6 million but I believe that in the end I’ll be moving there.”
