Transfer Balls: Manchester United mock Liverpool with Raheem Sterling broadcast

by | 21st, May 2015

The  Times’ story that Manchester United have asked Liverpool about their willingness to sell Raheem Sterling has been replayed throughout the mainstream media.

But the news is thin.

The Times leads sports story begins and ends with United asking Liverpool “for an indication of how much it would cost to buy the unsettled 20-year-old”.

It was only yesterday we learned that Manchester City had valued Sterling at £40million and 150,000-a-week in wages that offer following weeks of news that the player was worth anything up to £50million.

Now we learn that Sterling is without price because “United’s inquiry was rejected out of hand, without any figures being discussed”. And because Liverpool failed to include a release fee in his contract they’ll be no bids of £40million plus £1 (a bid Arsenal made for Louis Suarez).

All we know is what we knew a month ago: Liverpool want Sterling to sign a new contract but if they fail to secure a signature the club will hold him to his current £35,000 per week
