The Daily Mail are reporting that Liverpool are ready to move for Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez as his negotiations at Old Trafford have hit a deadlock.

Tevez has recently indicated that he is resigned to moving on from United in an attempt to secure more first-team football opportunities.

The Argentine frontman has attracted interested from abroad in the form of Inter Milan and Real Madrid, but Liverpool would offer him the chance to stay put in England and his home. The chance to play with close friend Javier Mascherano may tempt Tevez into a switch to Anfield.

Rafael Benitez would have to find around £30m to secure the diminutive 25 year old from his parent management company. They have already dealed with them before when signing Javier Mascherano in an £18m deal back in 2007.

Although United were given permission to bring in Tevez on a two-year loan, which has cost them £10m, that agreement ends in the summer and the Premier League has ruled that any club that wants to sign him will need to complete a permanent deal.

United have so far been reluctant to complete a permanent transfer and Alex Ferguson has pushed him down the pecking order behind Bulgarian Dimitar Berbatov, who was signed from Tottenham last Summer.

The Argentine looked unhappy when he was replaced by Berbatov on Wednesday and when asked if he would be at United next season, he stated: “It’s very difficult to say. I don’t know.”

“I know that the fans chant my name and sing the song about the manager signing me. They’ve always been very good to me. It’s emotional for me.” he finished.
