With the season drawing to a close the rumours
of transfer dealing will happen all summer. The first one to hit the news is Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted he would love to sign Liverpool skipper
Steven Gerrard as Roy Keane's long-term replacement at Manchester United.
The Old Trafford boss admits it would be a complicated transfer but insists he would prefer to have Gerrard over Arsenal midfielder Patrick Vieira.But
the Scot said any team in the world would like to have Gerrard in their team. "To me, Gerrard is Keane. He is where Keane was when Roy came to us in
1993. Everywhere the ball is, he is there." "He's got that unbelievable engine, desire, determination. Anyone would take Gerrard," he said. "Vieira
has done that job for Arsenal for two or three years. But you can see Gerrard rising and rising." It would be a massive blow to Liverpool if they was
to lose Gerrard and they would find it hard to replace the England ace.
