Steven Gerrard has recently admitted that there is a possibility that he might leave Anfield at the end of the current season. The contract of the 34 year old Liverpool player is set to expire in June 2015 and officially, as from January 2015, he would have the possibility to sign any pre-contract agreement with another club.
Gerrard has admitted having been offered other contracts and if Liverpool does not sign him for another season, he might play the next season with another club. But one thing’s for sure, Gerrard is not ready to retire yet. In a recent interview he mentioned that he will not be retiring this summer and will play beyond the season, whether his contract with Liverpool is extended or not.
Gerrard had been the captain of the England team at this year’s World Cup in Brazil. He has since retired from international football as a decision to lengthen his club career. Liverpool has so far had a disappointing start to the campaign as they have not been able to match their efforts from last season that brought them to finish as runner ups to Manchester City.
Ex-Liverpool player and top scorer Luis Suarez has been sold to Barcelona for 75 million pounds in 2014 and Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool manager, has spent a lot of resources to bring in nine players. Steven Gerrard affirmed that this money could have been spent on trying to bring in star players such as Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas. Both of these players have joined Chelsea FC before the beginning of the current season.
