Liverpool could be ready to spoil Barcelona's party and grab German hero Michael Ballack from Bayern Munich in a £9 million smash and grab raid.

In fact Dietmar Hamann could be drafted in to the deal to help persuade Bayern Munich to do business with the Anfield giants.

Michael Ballack who is 28 was by a country mile the best German player in their disappointing campaign. A powerful midfielder with goals a plenty, Michael Ballack is exactly the sort of player the reds need to partner Steven Gerrard and replace the ageing and defence-minded Didi Hamann.
