Liverpool manager Rafa Benítez remains tight-lipped on his long-term future at Anfield amid strong reports in Italy linking him with a move to Juventus this summer.

Benítez has been strongly linked with a move to Juventus, with sources close to the new Juventus president, Andrea Agnelli, claiming a deal to take the Spaniard to Turin is almost complete.

And Benítez has given his strongest hint yet that he is about to quit Anfield as he refused to give any assurances of his own to the Liverpool faithful.

He told the press: "If I am here it is because of those fans. I have had massive offers over the last year and I decided to stay because of the fans.

"It's been a very disappointing season because we couldn't achieve what we were expected to, and still I'm here and I will do my best until the end.

"At the moment I cannot talk about the future long term because I think we have to focus on the games we have left.

"I know the future very well and it is Chelsea. I want to win against Chelsea and then Hull, that's it."

And even Carlo Ancelotti, the former Juventus coach now in charge of Chelsea, believes Benítez would be a big hit in Serie A.

He said: "I'm sure he would be a success. Tactically, he has fantastic experience. His teams are tactically very, very good and so, in Italy, he would not have a problem.

"Benítez is one of the most important coaches and maybe Juventus will think to bring him to Turin but I don't know what will happen."
