Mr Lampard?

Apologies ‘pool fans, but this one just won’t go away. Inter Milan are seemingly becoming increasingly confident of being able to tempt Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard to Serie A with the offer of a ridiculously large contract – coupled with the promise of Champions League football next season.

Coach Jose Mourinho has apparently instructed Inter president Massimo Moratti to make the 29-year-old midfielder their top transfer priority this summer.

The Nerazzuri plan to raise the £25-30 million needed to secure the signing of the England man by selling fringe players such as Sulley Muntari and Ricardo Quaresma and may even propose a part-exchange deal with Liverpool that would see troublesome striker Mario Balotelli move to Anfield as part of the prospective Gerrard deal.

    This would be brilliant!

    if i were l’pool i would take muntari + balotelli + money for gerrard any day of the week.
    they rely far too much on him, even when hes not fully fit, meaning they dont play as a team of equals.
    liverpool would prosper if they made this deal.
    but as a Utd fan, i suggest keep benitez and gerrard for as long as possible. thanks.

    Why would we take Balotelli? He’ll only cause trouble and thats it.
    Plus 30m is much less than what Gerrard is worth even though he did not have a really awesome season this year.
    Considering today’s prices he should be 40m or more.

    And after saying that, I’m sure Gerrard won’t go no matter what promises they give but what I’m afraid is that Torres might leave and we just can’t let him go away!!!

    even as a reds fan i’m not sure it’s a bad idea. there’s no point in gerrard being in the team as long as benitez is here and they can’t afford to sack benitez…unless they sell gerrard who is past his best anyway.
    i’d say try and get 30mil for gerrard, let benitez go to juve (while convincing them to pay for some of his remainding contract) and hope that the rumours of gillet and hicks selling up are true.

    the club needs to move on.
