The Mirror is reporting that Rafael Benitez is likely to sign a new long-term contract worth £20m this week, tying him to Anfield until 2013.

Tom Hicks and George Gillett are in Liverpool this week and have arrived with the news Benitez wanted to hear -he will be given full control over transfer policy and Rick Parry will no longer be responsible for valuation of potential signings. Benitez will be able to identify transfer targets and sign them, provided it falls within a predetermined budget.

A source said to be close to Hicks said: “The owners have had a number of conversations with Rafa Benitez on the telephone this week. and they agree with his view on how transfer business will be conducted. Tom Hicks and George Gillett hope to conclude the contract while they are in England.”

Parry will now be asked to concentrate on the club’s commercial side.
