Liverpool hold talks with Madrid Star

Liverpool have reportedly opened talks with Real Madrid midfielder Rafael van der Vaart over a potential summer switch.

Anfield chiefs held talks with a fortnight ago with representatives from Los Blancos following the Reds' Europa League semi-final first leg in the Spanish capital against Atletico Madrid.

However any deal will be dependent on the future of manager Rafael Benitez, who is set to meet chairman Martin Broughton this afternoon for showdown talks.

It is understood that Benitez was not consulted on an approach to Los Blancos for the Holland international with Juventus still confident of luring him to Turin despite a reluctance by the Kop boss to meet their deadline before the end of the week.

Highly-rated van der Vaart, 27 is one of several Galacticos expected to leave the Bernabeu as part of a summer clear-out.
