Liverpool and United favourites to land £10m set-piece wizard

Published Add your comment

Liverpool and Manchester United are favourites to land Blackpool's Charlie Adam, according to bookmakers William Hill.

The Scottish midfielder was relegated with the Tangerines after defeat to United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

But after Adam scored a stunning free-kick at the Stretford End and following Sir Alex Ferguson's comments earlier in the season that Adam's corners alone were worth £10 million, United have jumped to the front of the queue, along with long-time admirers Liverpool.


After the club made a bid for the midfielder during the January transfer window, Liverpool have been watching Adam intently, and are expected to go back in for the 25-year-old this summer as they search for a left sided player to supply Andy Carroll.

In addition to Adam, who is expected to leave Bloomfield Road for £10 million, Liverpool and United are after Ashley Young, who is believed to be leaving Aston Villa this season.

United recently usurped Liverpool as Britain's most successful league club as they won a record 19th league title.
