[Liverpool Echo: Liverpool to prevail in battle for Benitez](http://icliverpool.icnetwork.co.uk/0500liverpoolfc/0100news/tm_objectid=14279562%26method=full%26siteid=50061%26headline=liverpool%2dto%2dprevail%2din%2dbattle%2dfor%2dbenitez-name_page.html)
>Liverpool are in advanced negotations with the 44-year-old Benitez and are confident he will be installed as new manager before the start of pre-season.
>Talks will not be finalised until Rick Parry returns from a family holiday in Barbados in 11 days’ time, with reports in some quarters suggesting the chief executive has already shaken hands with Benitez on an agreement.
>A Liverpool spokesman said: “Rick Parry is out of the country and no decision on the managerial side will be made until he is back.”
>But while Benitez was quoted on Spanish radio yesterday saying he would prefer to remain in his current job, it would appear that is just a smokescreen as the search for Houllier’s successor reaches its conclusion.
>Bayern Munich and Inter Milan were also interested in taking Benitez from Spain, but it is clear only Valencia themselves are the remaining obstacle to Liverpool capturing their number one managerial target.
