Capello demands Juventus bid for Liverpool's Gerrard - February 27, 2006

Juventus will make a major bid for Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard in the summer.

Armed with the cash from their deal with Mediaset, Juve are preparing an offer for midfielder Gerrard following demands from coach Fabio Capello.

Gerrard only signed a new deal last summer after rejecting a move to Chelsea.

The Mail on Sunday says Capello has told Juve's board he will only consider staying on beyond this season if they show their ambition by making a serious move for Gerrard.

Capello is concerned over the aging legs of Emerson and sees Gerrard as the ideal man to succeed the Brazilian as Patrick Vieira's long-term partner in Juve's midfield.
