Benitez to take Inter job

Rafael Benitez has agreed to become the new coach of Internazionale.

The former Liverpool boss, whose six-year reign at Anfield was ended by mutual consent last week, will replace Jose Mourinho at the helm of the Italian and European champions after holding talks with president Massimo Moratti.

Benitez, 50, won the Champions League with Liverpool in 2005 and the FA Cup the following year during his six-year stint and, prior to his move to England, led La Liga side Valencia to the Spanish title in 2002 and 2004 with the UEFA Cup arriving at the Mestalla in the same year.

Inter, who won the Serie A title as well as the Coppa Italia and the Champions League last season, have been searching for a successor to Mourinho after the Portuguese coach teamed up with Real Madrid recently and it looks like the Nerazzuri look to have found their new man.

Speaking to the club's official website, Moratti said:"We've got an agreement, we finalised the last details that in any case weren't important.

"Tomorrow (Wednesday) we will say when Rafa Benitez will be presented."
