Did Marvel really try to get Jim Lee to work for them again?

According to Clutch Points, the dreadful artist Rob Liefeld made the claim on his podcast that veteran artist Lee was being courted by Marvel for a possible return to their employment:
It isn't uncommon for Marvel and DC to trade writers, editors, and artists as long-running series undergo relaunches or a brand new character needs a team to bring them to life. However, Marvel allegedly went all the way to the top of DC Comics in an attempt to sway one of the latter's top executives back to oversee the upcoming X-Men relaunch.

The news comes from longtime artist and Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld, who spoke about Marvel's attempted acquisition on his podcast Robservations, according to ComicBookMovie. He said Marvel approached DC Comics executive Jim Lee about coming back to Marvel Comics to illustrate the X-Men relaunch and help oversee its creative direction going forward.

Lee ultimately decided to stay with DC Comics where he is the president, publisher, and chief creative officer.
Even if Lee did return to Marvel's employ, it wouldn't salvage their withering output from the dire straits it fell into at the turn of the century, and besides, Lee's since become so woke himself, he'd likely water down the proportions of his art of women, much like I recall him doing at DC. And if DC's creative directions under Lee failed, why must we expect any different if he did return to Marvel? A so-called comeback at Marvel wouldn't mean anything.

Of course, if Marvel/DC decide to rehire Liefeld for anything, it goes without saying that'd be very sad, considering how dreadful his art is even today, or just plain dull and derivative.
