Rafa Benitez on verge of getting the sack from Inter milan
The Guardian is reporting that the parting of the ways set to be formally confirmed in the next 24 hours.
The Italian club's president, Massimo Moratti, is in the process of negotiating the manager's payoff with the pair's relationship having been destroyed after Benitez effectively served Moratti with an ultimatum to back him in the transfer market next month or sack him after winning the club world cup.
Meanwhile the Gazzetta dello Sport is saying (in English) that "Benitez stays" .. although it's then inferred that this is only until a new manager is sorted out ... and suggests that Inter Milan are trying to reduce the amount of compensation that they will have to pay Benitez.
