Jose Mourinho Confident Of Signing Steven Gerrard For Inter
By Chris Wright
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.
