Liverpool skipper Gerrard: Real Madrid move was never close

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says he's never come close to moving to Spain.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says he's never come close to moving to Spain.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is a big fan of Gerrard's, but the Scouse icon insists a switch to the Spanish Liga was never a prospect.

Gerrard told AS: "Never. There was a lot of rumours about the summer of 2005 when Chelsea wanted me, but I decided, well, I stayed.

"I follow the Spanish league, French, German ... and it is normal that I'm asked, 'would I play well in this competition?'

"But there has never been a real possibility or one that I really wanted."
