Chelsea offer Gerrard way out

In the manner of a jilted husband, Liverpool pledged to do whatever it took to win back a disaffected Steven Gerrard, but with Chelsea ready to pay £32 million it appeared to be too little too late. Even if he is offered a renewal of vows, a contract worth £90,000 a week and a promise that he will never again be taken for granted, it seems that West London is the 25-year-old’s most likely destination.

The Times starts the ‘Gerrard to Chelsea’ ball rolling again in earnest.
