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.
