Luis Suarez and Patrice Evra will shake hands before Sunday's clash between Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield, according to a report.
The BBC claim that Liverpool and United are confident that there will be no repeat of the non-handshake of their last meeting.
The clubs have been in talks about how to mark the release of the Hillsborough report when the two clubs meet at Anfield on Sunday. Both clubs have apparently stressed the need for the handshake to go ahead without incident.
There will be several tributes paid on the day, including the release of 96 balloons released by captains Steven Gerrard and Nemanja Vidic to reflect the lives lost in the 1989 tragedy.
There will also be several crowd mosaics, with 'The Truth' displayed on the Kop, 'Justice' on the Lower Centenary Stand and '96' on the Anfield Road end.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has already made it clear that his club will do whatever it takes to help Liverpool mark these new developments.
"It is going to be a very emotional day," Ferguson said. "We will support them in every way we can. We are supportive of Liverpool."
He had previously said that he hoped the emerging truth about the Hillsborough tragedy would be a 'line in the sand' when it comes to a club rivalry which has often crossed the boundaries of taste.
