Liverpool legend Carragher: Raul tried to recruit Gerrard for Real Madrid

Jamie Carragher has revealed how Raul attempted to recruit Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard for Real Madrid. Carra wrote in the Daily Mail: "Having scored two goals to inspire a 4-0 demolition of Real Madrid in the Champions League, Steven was soaking up the atmosphere inside Anfield when Raul, the legendary Spain striker and emblem of Madrid, came up to him. He congratulated him and then got straight to the point.

"'Will you come and join us next season, Steven?' asked Raul.

"That offer, which was made five years ago this week, was not the first he received to leave Liverpool, nor was it the last."
