Rafa Benitez has conceded he is aware of speculation linking him with Real Madrid, but insists he has no plans to quit Anfield.
Real are thought to have placed Benitez, who was formerly a youth coach with them, on a two-man short-list to take over at the club next season along with Juventus' Fabio Capello.
The Spanish giants are desperately disappointed at what now looks certain to be another trophyless season and are planning a major overhaul of their playing and coaching staff.
Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has moved to quash rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid. The Spanish giants are expected to freshen up their staff after another disappointing year, and current boss Wanderley Luxemburgo may be on borrowed time. Benitez has a good reputation in Spain after working wonders at Valencia and was rumoured to be on the Spanish giants' shortlist, although he has now emphatically denied that he has any intention of walking out of the Anfield hot-seat.
