Carlos Tevez is suddenly being linked with several moves away from Manchester City, which would finally give him the chance to move away from the city he’s less than fond of.
Juventus have apparently agreed terms but Goal.com has now suggested that Liverpool are interested in the striker if he’s available at the right price.
However, it’s a potential transfer which could cause major problems for Brendan Rodgers.
The first problem he’d have is getting the move past the fans without being ridiculed for it.
While Tevez is a top class striker, still only 29-years-old and guarantees goals for Liverpool, he played for Manchester United so he may never have that level of support from the Kop.
He’s also made it quite clear that he’s not fond of Manchester and England in general, so if he has the chance to join a foreign side in the Champions League, he is always going to take that move over Liverpool.
He’s also going to cause problems in terms of his personality and status within the squad.
He’s got a big ego, but then so does Luis Suarez. The difference is that Suarez hasn’t been a problem for Brendan Rodgers while Tevez has proven he will quite outrageously defy a manager.
We all remember that night at Bayern Munich where he refused to warm up as a substitute, which lead to him being an outcast until he’d apologised to Roberto Mancini.
Liverpool are really trying to push forward at the moment in terms of their financial structure and the fact they are creating a younger and more vibrant team.
If they are going to bring in an older player, they cannot risk anything which is going to risk the plans and the development that Rodgers has in mind for the football club.
Liverpool would seemingly be gambling on City’s urge and the new manager’s desire to get rid of Tevez, bringing in another high profile striker like Edinson Cavani.
Liverpool have previously tried to get Tevez on a loan deal but that’s not going to happen considering his profile and his quality as a striker.
If Juventus are serious about going up against Liverpool for him, it will create a bidding war which will cause the Liverpool board to reject the deal in the same way they rejected a proposed move for Ashley Williams of Swansea City.
Do you think there is any chance this deal could happen?
