For a club that recycled managers and Galacticos at a quick rate for great expense, he admirably sought to change the direction of the club by bringing through a raft of new, young players such as Casemiro and Lucas Vazquez, who have become stars for a team set for a third consecutive Champions League title.

Benitez may therefore shop around in the Premier League for players who are set to leave their clubs this summer, and there looks to be a golden opportunity to bring in an global defender on the cheap.
