London: Liverpool great Steven Gerrard has been offered a 16.8 million pounds mansion in the posh Malibu in Los Angeles by his new club LA Galaxy.
Gerrard would move to the Major League Soccer outfit, who would pay the 13,440 pounds-a-week rent for the ocean-view pad during the midfielder's 18-month contract, in June with his wife Alex and daughters Lilly-Ella, Lexie and Lourdes.
And the footballer and his family would be living like movie stars in the six-bedroom, nine-bathroom home, The Daily Star reported.
Just 15 minutes from the seaside enclave of Santa Monica, it has sweeping mountain and Pacific Ocean views and is set in its own private orchards of citrus and avocado trees. The posh house also features separate exercise, massage and sauna rooms plus an outdoor infinity pool, huge barbecue area and three-car garage.
Gerrard's older daughters Lexie and Lilly-Ella will almost certainly be home tutored. A senior Galaxy official said that the club is helping Gerrard and Alex with every imaginable aspect of their family move and they are obviously hoping to get them settled as soon as possible.
Teammates including Republic of Ireland captain and former Tottenham Hotspur hotshot Robbie Keane and his missus, ex Miss Ireland beauty contestant Claudine, would also help the Gerrards acclimatize to life in America.
A player's wife said that most weekends, especially in summer, they get together for drinks or a barbecue and they organize loads of girls' nights out and family days.
So, she added that Alex and the kids are never going to be lonely, even when Gerrard is playing away with the team, and insisted that she is looking forward to attending the Gerrards' first party once they've settled in.
