Odds Of Liverpool Ace Joining Man City - 14/1

Odds Of Liverpool Ace Joining Man City - 14/1

There has been a lot of speculation whether Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres will be at Anfield next season, but if Liverpool fail to qualify for the Champions or Europa League, one or both may be heading for the exit.

Steven Gerrard

The Liverpool and England ace, who turns 30 at the end of May once said he would never the club of his birth but with Liverpool FC up for sale and the clubs finances almost as bad as the Old Trafford lot the club is going to have to cut its cloth to meet its needs. Therefore, it's reasonable to suggest their prize assets will sold.

Skybet currently have Gerrard at 1/8 to remain at Liverpool Football Club, although he is 6/1 to join Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid.

A possible move to Manchester City FC can be backed at 14/1, while odds of 16/1 are available for him to join Champions League holders Barcelona.

A long shot bet is that he jumps ship to Stamford Bridge and joins Chelsea at 25/1.



Fernando Torres

Following the news that Fernando Torres is set to miss the remainder of Liverpool's season, having undergone a knee operation, WilliamHill have slashed the odds of the Spaniard never featuring again for the Reds from 7/2 to 8/15.

With cash expected to be tight at Anfield this summer, and rumours over the future of the man who brought the striker to the club, Rafael Benitez, Hills are clearly expecting Torres to jump ship during the summer transfer window.

The firm's spokesman Graham Sharpe told Bettingpro...

'We believe Torres is an odds-on chance to leave Liverpool before the start of next season'

Hills are also offering odds of 6/1 that Torres, Benitez AND Steven Gerrard have all left the club before the start of next season.

I wonder?

Lamps is better, but both are 30. Gerrard is past his best, dont think he adds value to our team.

What is Gerrard worth these days? I bet a three-year contrat would cost in the region of £25m, plus a salary of £160,000 a week. Waste of money me thinks! Torres perhaps but not Gerrard.

I would love to know where these bookies get their information from. Perhaps from Gerrard regularly saying he would never leave Liverpool? Or maybe from Torres saying he'd stay at Liverpool?

Lol Lads if Steven Gerrard would come to City we'd take him at any price. We only have Ireland in his position and he is a world class box to box goal scoring midfielder who is proven in both the Champions League and Premier. Torres would be a bonus too though I believe Gerrard is more of a necessity. If any world class players such as Fabregas, Torres, Gerrard or Milner(!) are up for grabs, rest assured we'll be the highest bidders.

With Gerrard its a case of the older he gets, the better he used to be. He has not played well this season, and he wont get better, same with Sweep. Torres I would have in a heartbeat.

Like gerrard and torres dying to join little old citeh. we are getting new owners so cash might be available. all the cash problems are bit clichéd and ill informed. its not like citeh are going to make the champions league either next season its going to be spurs who are finishing 4th.

If we had Stuart Pearce still in charge we would be able to sign all those guys who have injuries. No chance of Gerrard and I think he is now passed his best anyway and as folr Torres, that depends very much on fourth place.

Not so sure I'd want Steven Gerrard at this stage of his career - undoubtedly one of the best in his position, but at 30 years old he's only going to go downhill. Would cost a packet and we might get 2 years out of him at the top level, so all things said, I'd rather go for a younger, hungrier player who doesn't beat up DJ's.
