Liverpool Ready to Shell Out £26m for World Class Striker

The all new rumour reporting article system is in full effect!

The Rumour

Tottenham were reeling last night after being told Liverpool are willing to shell out £50million for Carlos Tevez.
The Spurs board sanctioned an £18m move for the Argie striker, whose loan at Manchester United ends this summer.

But they were blown away when the Tevez camp revealed Liverpool are ready to offer the £26m asking fee AND a staggering £160,000-a-week three-year deal — worth £8.3m-a-year.

United insist they still want to cut a deal with Tevez, who is loaned to them by his owner Kia Joorabchian.

Although they are refusing to pay Joorabchian’s current asking price, United would be sickened if he switched to bitter rivals Liverpool — a move which would also infuriate Old Trafford fans.

But unsettled striker Tevez, 25, revealed in SunSport last week that he would join Liverpool if they made a bid.

A source close to the deal told SunSport: “It seems amazing that Liverpool have the money to do this when you consider their owners are looking for funds.

“But Spurs were told that Liverpool were going to get the deal done and that Tevez was very happy about it.”

The Analysis

Carlos Tevez has come in for some criticism in recent weeks, mainly focused on the lack of goals from the Argentine this season, criticism that is not only short sighted but also somewhat inaccurate. The former Hammers man has started 32 matches across all comps for Man United this season and has found the net a healthy 15 times and one can only guess at how many of those starts didn’t conclude with the nippy front man being hauled off the pitch and subbed.

Some have argued that his determination on the pitch somehow overshadows and overcompensate for a lack of ability on the pitch, and to those people i seriously have a worry about. Surely no one can deny his ability on the ball and his selfless nature on the field of play. This is a man who outscored Wayne Rooney last season as the Old Trafford side lifted the Premier and Champions League double.

Any club would be happy to sign such a player and it appears that Rafa is keen to sign the diminutive attacker, but will he managed to snare him?

The Likelihood

Tevez to Liverpool: If Sir Alex doesn’t snap up Carlito expect Benitez to be ready and able to pounce!
