Never in a million years!
SIR ALEX FERGUSON is planning an audacious raid on Liverpool for Kop striking hero Fernando Torres.
Armed with the £80 million windfall from Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Real Madrid, the Manchester United boss is determined to make his own impact in a transfer market which is becoming bloated with money from the big clubs.
Liverpool hitman Torres is the shock target, as Sir Alex knows that a bid of around £40m would have to be seriously considered by United’s title rivals who have severe cash problems.
If Ferguson could pull off the coup, it would be a slap in the face for Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez, who was involved in a war of words with the Scot during the second half of the season.

This can only be an idea created in the mind of a very bored journalist with papers to sell. I don’t even know where to begin with this one. Sir Alex Ferguson wouldn’t be so silly as to even consider such an approach and Fernando Torres wouldn’t be stupid enough to even contemplate a move to Liverpool‘s arch rivals.
Also if this rumour was even based in one iota of fact surely the valuation of the player would be substantially higher than the £40m figure quoted, especially given recent developments relating to the huge transfers of Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo!
Whilst Man United may well be looking to spend big after losing their Portuguese international and they will be looking to boost their attacking options they are more likely to be looking for another wide-man and not another out and out striker. This deal just will never happen!
Torres to Man United: Absolutely no chance!
