Teddy Sheringham 'agreed to join Liverpool before Manchester United move'

:Headline: Teddy Sheringham 'agreed to join Liverpool before Manchester United move':
Manchester United legend Teddy Sheringham was reportedly on the verge of joining Liverpool before his move to Old Trafford, only for the board to cancel the deal.

Former Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham had reportedly agreed to join Liverpool before instead moving to their bitter rivals in 1997.

Sheringham cemented his place in United's history as part of the 1998-99 treble-winning squad, famously scoring the equaliser and assisting the winner in the dramatic late Champions League final win over Bayern Munich.

The former England international won seven trophies in total during his four-year spell at Old Trafford, including three successive Premier League titles.

However, The Athletic claims that Sheringham was on the verge of joining Liverpool before United, agreeing personal terms with the Merseyside club after then-manager Roy Evans had earmarked him as a perfect partner for Robbie Fowler.

The Liverpool board overruled their manager and cancelled the deal, though, deeming that Sheringham was too old at the age of 31.

The striker went on to score 46 goals in 153 appearances for United and was named FWA Footballer and PFA Player of the Year in 2000-01, eventually ending his top-flight career when he was over 40 years old. body check tags ::
