Real Madrid have identified Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard as a potential 'galactico' - having already signed English trio David Beckham, Michael Owen and Jonathan Woodgate.





Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has identified Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard as a potential galactico.

The Spanish giants made a summer swoop for Gerrard's former Anfield team-mate Michael Owen.

They also signed Newcastle centre-back Jonathan Woodgate, who teamed up with England captain David Beckham at the Bernabeu.

Now Perez has his eye on Gerrard and told the Sunday Mirror: "Steven Gerrard is a player I really like, he is the type of player who would suit the famous shirt of Real Madrid."

Gerrard, who scored in Liverpool's 3-0 win over West Brom at Anfield on Saturday, was a summer target for Chelsea but decided to stay at Liverpool and give new boss Rafael Benitez the chance to lead the club back to the top.

At the same time, Real Madrid were failing in their bid to lure Arsenal midfielder Patrick Vieira to the Bernabeu.

there starting to take an interest in lots of english players, makes me wonder if buying the english ones if they get more marketing money for it, after all the premiership is the biggest league in the world.

i think it could be possible, if benitez has a flop season and is booted (i doubt it) i could see it happening, but he wanted to stay.

if he did go though, how would he get a game?

I don't think he will go as he would have gone before. As long as Liverpool have a raeal good season he will stay. They are doing pretty good at the moment.

yip, although, i think for him to really want to stay, they need to do well in the champions league, and they need to aim for the top 4 in the league this season.

he has got ambition

If I hear this rumour one more time I'm going to puke. It's already been put to bed twice, yet keeps getting dregged up. Gerrard is going NOWHERE!!!

Both he and Rafa have already come out and said it's rubbish, and Rafa spoke to Madrid and they denied it, just adding that they admire him as a player and would like to maybe have him in the future. That doesn't mean they'll get him...

P.S. I hope Owen's enjoying his new role as a bench warmer over there.


Seeing the way we played the other night whilst he sat on his arse, I hope there was big regret in his heart (early days I know but one can always hope hehehe).

Owen will end up getting PILES from sitting on his azz on a cold surface for too long...

hahaha TRD! You know, the dream is that he'd want to come back next season with his tail inbetween his legs, but we tell him to f@#k off!


I do wish him well though, he's a scumbag who never had the club at heart and the fans never trusted him, but he did serve us well. That's got to be worth something...

Thing is in todays game there is not that much loyalty anymore.

But Owen sure did play well and scored a hell of a lot of goals at his time at Liverpool. His goals definatly helped win a few trophy's over the years...

As for Gerrard who knows what he will do, only he will know that. But they way Liverpool are making giants steps forward i can't see him going anywhere...

Well to be fair Owen looked like a jaded figure for almost the past two seasons, you could tell he wasn't interested in playing for us anymore and just let the clock wind down. That's what most people were upset about, he knew he wanted to go but wouldn't let us cash in on him...

As for Gerrard, he had his chance to go and he stayed loyal ( or was threatened, same difference
) If we keep playing the way we are he'll have no reason to go anywhere...
