Juventus look set to miss out on Guus Hiddink, who may take over at Liverpool, meaning Rafael Benitez will be free to join the Turin based club, according to Tuttosport.
The report suggests the underfire Spanish tactician is living in the shadows of Hiddink, who is wanted by the Anfield-based club. However, the move is unlikely to happen until the summer when both Juventus and Liverpool restructure.
Bianconeri coach Ciro Ferrara was recently given another lifeline by the board. They discussed his future on Wednesday, but decided to keep him following the Coppa Italia win over Napoli.
But things might change in May, depending on whether Ferrara delivers a Champions League place. Local media in Italy claims Benitez will subscribe to the idea of joining Juventus, with the coach speaking fluent Italian.
In England, The Daily Telegraph claims Benitez's future is not under any immediate threat, but this will be reviewed by the Reds at the end of the season.
