Owen/Gerrard swap deal?
I am a bit disturbed by some of the latest transfer talk. Michael Owen has once again reiterated his frustration at being left on the bench for Real so often this season and has suggested that he wouldn't rule out a return to Liverpool. Rafael Benitez has also had his thoughts saying he would welcome Owen's return. When Owen was sold to Real at the start of the season rumours were flying about that Liverpool had given Real first option on Gerrard. With Everton once again moving four points ahead of Liverpool in the league today it is becoming increasingly likely that Liverpool will not grab that fourth spot. If so, clubs like Real and Chelsea are likely to tempt Gerrard who will certainly be on his way if Liverpool do not qualify for the Champions League. We all know Real will do anything to get the player they want and so it would not surprise me if they tempted Lverpool into a cash+player deal to get Gerrard, with that player being Owen.
