PRAGUE (AFP) - Milan Baros, top scorer at Euro
2004, confirmed that Real Madrid had made an offer to his English Premiership
"Real Madrid have made a concrete offer but it is still a question of
discussions," Baros told Czech TV.
"It is only an offer. I still have a contract with Liverpool and go back
there on July 19," he added Wednesday.
Baros joined Liverpool from Banik Ostrava in 2002 for 3.2 million pounds.
He missed six months after breaking his ankle at Blackburn last September and
when fit again struggled to break into former manager Gerard Houllier's starting
Liverpool may be reluctant to sell Baros given his excellent form for the
Czechs and the fact that fellow striker Michael Owen is only likely to sign a
contract extension to his current deal.
Baros, 22, had previously indicated he wanted to stay at Liverpool and prove
himself to new boss Rafael Benitez.
His contract runs until 2007.
Baros, who scored five goals for the Czechs before they were knocked out by a
silver goal by Greece in the semi-finals, said he would swap all his goals to
have seen the Czechs progress to the final.
"I am very happy to be the leading scorer of the tournament but I have mixed
feelings. At the same time I am sad that we did not make it to the final. When I
watched the final on television I felt that we should have been there," he said.
"I would have given back those goals for our team to have been in that final,"
