Rafa In Signing Spanish Youngster Shocker

RAFAEL BENITEZ is ready to dip into the coffers of Liverpool’s new American owners by adding to his Spanish contingent.

The Anfield manager has earmarked a £1.5million move for Tenerife midfielder Iriome Gonzalez at the end of the season.

The 19-year-old right-sided midfielder has this year broken into the first team of the Canary Island outfit, who play in the second division in Spain.

Iriome has appeared in only six games, and with regulations in Spain stating an academy graduate cannot sign a contract until he has featured in 10 senior games, Tenerife will make sure the midfielder reaches that figure so they can command a transfer fee at the end of the campaign.

Drogballs: Now we have the quantity. But do they have the quality needed to play for the Red devils? Just hope he's not another Antonio Nunuz. But just imagine, the Gonzos on the wings. Mark on the left and Iriome on the right. Should be quite interesting!
