Gerrard will not be heading to Spain’s capital
By Ross Mackiewicz.
Steven Gerrard will not be heading to the Spanish capital according to Real Madrid’s transfer consultant Ernesto Bronzetti.
Bronzetti explained that Gerrard’s age and valuation has sincerely deterred Florentino Perez’s interest and will no longer pursue for his services. The Anfield skipper’s future has come into serious doubt following his clubs failure to quality for the Champions League as well as their failure to bridge the gap on the Premier League summit.
Jose Mourinho is now at the forefront of a new dynasty at Real after leaving his post at Internazionale where he steered them to European success, ironically at the Santiago Bernabeu in May. The ‘Special One’ tried to lure Gerrard to Stamford Bridge in the spring of 2005 after he handed in a transfer request, only to reverse his decision soon after.
Now it seems that the 30 year old will not be linking up with the Portuguese tactician any time soon as Bronzetti confirmed that the hierarchy of the Spanish giants are no longer interested, primarily due to the hefty price tag hovering over the midfielder’s head.
“The president does not agree with Gerrard because he is 30 and Perez doesn’t want to know.” Bronzetti told GR Parlamento.
“Plus, Liverpool asked for €70m.”
Mourinho is eager to add a player in the mould of Gerrard to his collection of superstars after the club completed the signing of Benfica’s Angel di Maria.
