The Sun are today revealing the slightly craptastic transfer nugget that Inter Milan made a huge £25million bid for Stevie Gerrard – only to have it thrown back in their faces, rather unsurprisingly.
An unnamed Inter pencil pusher revealed that:
“We need to make a big signing for next season and Gerrard was at the centre of our thoughts.
“Liverpool gave us the most emphatic response he was not for sale.”
Alas, the most intriguing part of this story – what exactly the “emphatic response” was (indignant spluttering, violent Spanish swearing, a bullet painted in Inter’s colours inscribed with “do one”) – wasn’t revealed by The Sun.
