Torres and Gerrard wanted at city

I dismissed this story as papertalk but it is looking more and more likely that this may actually happen!

A backpage lead is the rather eye-catching claim that Manchester City chief executive Garry Cook is intent on signing Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard.

According to some papers, 'There are those at Anfield only too aware of the threat from City, not least to Liverpool's two biggest stars. After the false dawn of Thakskin Shinawatra, the pledges of owner Sheikh Mansour are proving to be no mirage.

'That sends out a compelling message to both Torres and Gerrard - that they may have to re-evaluate their futures in the summer.'

Hmm. But it's the next couple of lines that really stands out:

'It's not even a secret within the City corridors of power that the hierarchy are plotting a £140million double swoop for both Torres and Gerrard this summer.
'City officials are already planning how they can pull off what would be one of the most audacious transfer coups of all time.'

£140m? Could Liverpool to afford to turn that down?
