Steven Gerrard has given Liverpool no assurances over his future at the club as Real Madrid look to negotiate the midfielder’s value, according to reports.
It has emerged that the England and Liverpool skipper is top of Jose Mourinho’s wanted list but the Spanish club are hesitant to meet the Anfield side’s £30 million valuation.
Madrid want to put a deal in place sooner rather than later and, while Gerrard insisted he will only look at his future after the World Cup, he also refused to guarantee he will be on Merseyside next term.
Speaking to Spanish media, Gerrard reportedly said: “It is possible that I'll be in Madrid next season.
“I'm aware of the club's offer so maybe we'll see each other in Madrid. I can't say anymore. I'm just concentrating on the World Cup. My agent is looking after it all,” he added.
Real have also shown interest in Gerrard’s international team mate Wayne Rooney and, last week, were reportedly planning a double swoop in excess of £100 million.
Madrid, though, are hoping to pay as little as £20 million for Gerrard and, if they cannot do a cheap deal, are lining up Roma’s Daniele De Rossi as an alternative.
