Manchester City and Liverpool are among five leading clubs who have agreed to pay the £25 million needed to sign Carlos Tévez this summer amid growing uncertainty over the Argentina striker’s future at Manchester United, The Times has learnt.
Another English club and two foreign clubs, one of which is understood to be Real Madrid, have also offered to match the fee that Kia Joorabchian, who fronts the companies that own Tévez’s economic rights, is demanding for the player, but that United have so far balked at paying.

This is big news and given the source quite believable as well. Of course there are other sides in the mix but Liverpool could well be the most promising of the lot. Tevez would be a great foil for El Nino and works his socks for the team and clearly wanting to prove a point to anyone who thinks he isn’t good enough to make it into the Man United first team, i.e. Sir Alex Ferguson.
Rafa Benitez would probably take pleasure from nabbing the Argentine from under his arch rivals noses and to be fair I don’t think the Old Trafford Faithful would have anything against him for pursuing such a move given the fact that the striker has done all he could to convince his boss of his value.
That then leads nicely to the next obvious question. Would the Merseysiders fans have any problem with taking a former United man to the club? Are there those who simply don’t think he is good enough and that Fergie is right to consider not signing him permanently?
Tevez to Liverpool: He seems set to leave and a move to Liverpool is about 50/50 now and may have more to do with the Anfield side getting the cash together than trying to convince the 25 year old to sign.
