Manchester City Ponder Shock Move For Liverpool Captain Steven Gerrard

Manchester City are monitoring the contract situation of Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, report the Mail, with the former England international yet to enter discussions over an extension at Anfield to take him beyond the end of the season.

Gerrard brought the issue into fans’ collective consciousnesses recently when he stated that he was not ready to retire and would move to another club if Liverpool did not agree a new contract, despite spending his entire career to date with the Merseyside club.

It was inevitably that, following this, some big names would be linked – and Manchester City are reportedly keeping tabs on the situation in case the opportunity to move in arises, with Manuel Pellegrini already having shown his willingness to dabble with older, more experienced players with moves for Martin Demichelis and Frank Lampard.

The Chilean does not judge a player by their age and, if Gerrard can still do a job for the Eastlands club, it is entirely plausible that he could be heading down the road to Manchester in the summer.

The most likely outcome, however, would still seem to be a new contract for the Kop icon, with manager Brendan Rodgers seemingly keen to continue making Gerrard one of the central pieces of his team at Anfield.
