Manchester City plot £40million transfer swoop for Liverpool's Raheem Sterling

Manchester City will make a £40million bid for Liverpool contract rebel Raheem Sterling.

The 20-year-old England international has told Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers he wants to leave the club, with deposed champions City and new Premiership kings Chelsea potential destinations.


City are expected to offer Sterling £150,000 a week if they can break Liverpool’s resolve on a player who has two years remaining on his current deal.

The Anfield club have offered £90,000-a-week but Sterling’s representatives have complained privately they feel the club's hierarchy have gone on the offensive in the vacuum created by a failure to agree a deal, and that has turned the fans against their client.
