Exit looks on the cards for Anfield legend.
Liverpool look unwilling to extend Steven Gerrard’s contract on his current £140,000 per week wages as an exit looks increasingly likely next summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The former England captain has spent his entire career at Anfield so far, establishing himself as one of the club’s best players of all time with some truly inspirational displays in the heart of their midfield.
However, at 34 years of age now he looks somewhat past his best and may no longer be part of Brendan Rodgers’ first-team plans, having been dropped from the starting lineup for this weekend’s game against Stoke City.
A number of big clubs have reportedly shown an interest in Gerrard as his future looks uncertain, and it looks as though he will be heading out of the club as contract talks fail to progress.
The Reds skipper is on big money and will surely have to take a significant pay cut if he is to remain with the Merseyside giants, though he could receive big-money offers from overseas.
Gerrard will be free to talk to foreign clubs from January onwards, and can leave for nothing at the end of the season.
