The Sunday Mirror:

Manchester United are ready to launch a renewed bid for Liverpool target Fernando Torres, knowing the Anfield club are struggling to raise the cash for the Atletico Madrid striker.

United's move to land £10millionrated Italian international Fabio Quagliarella looks doomed after Udinese outbid Sampdoria in a tender to secure the striker's services next season.

So Sir Alex Ferguson has turned his attentions back to long-term target Torres, who now looks likely to leave the club he has supported all his life after Atletico failed to qualify for Europe.

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez's failed attempt to secure Torres with a bid which included Luis Garcia as a makeweight has alerted United to Atletico's willingness to do business.

But the Spanish club are looking to bank the £27m they inserted as a get-out clause when Torres signed a new contract last summer.
