City could move for unsettled Reds midfielder.
Manchester City could be interested in signing Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard if he decides to leave Anfield next summer, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The 34-year-old Reds captain is thought to be considering his future at the club he has been with for his entire career, with his contract set to expire at the end of this season and with no new offer currently on the table.
Manuel Pellegrini admits he is keeping an eye on the situation of the former England international, who could follow in the footsteps of former team-mate Frank Lampard in making the shock switch to the Etihad Stadium next season.
Lampard joined City on loan from New York City FC, whom he signed for after leaving Chelsea at the end of his contract last season, and Gerrard’s move to his team’s Premier League rivals would be similarly surprising.
Gerrard has made nearly 700 appearances for Liverpool in a great career with his boyhood club, but it may be that his age will see him fall out of favour with Brendan Rodgers by next season.
Pellegrini, however, still feels the player can perform at the top level and could be a good addition to his squad.
“I don’t ever rate players on their age,” the Chilean said.
“It depends on the money they cost and the number of years they can play for.
“Like Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard is a top player and he can continue at a high level for a couple more years.”
