Kuyt: Gerrard will never join Man City

Cristiano Ronaldo, Cesc Fabregas and Steven Gerrard are some of the star players Manchester City are interested in signing following the recent take over of the club.

Kuyt said: “I don’t think any player from here would go to City, because Liverpool is a much bigger club.

“I’m in my third season here now and I enjoy it every day. I know how big this club is, not only in England but all over the world, and that’s really important for all the players here.”

He added: “Liverpool IS Stevie. So, of course, it would be very difficult to buy him. I don’t think he would ever leave here for City.

“I don’t know what value you would put on him but it would be a lot of money. So it won’t be easy for City, especially if they want to sign the really big players. It’s possible. But if you want those already playing for big clubs, that’s the difficult thing.”
