Transfer Balls: Raheem Sterling Is Off To Manchester United For £15m Less Than Manchester City Bid
Transfer Balls spots the rumours that Raheem Sterling is leaving Liverpool for Manchester United. The Daily Mirror says United will offer £25m for the England player. How it knows this is left unsaid. But, you know, “sources”.
ESPN says Liverpool would rather sell Sterling to Arsenal. The fee? Lots of money plus Theo Walcott and Kieran Gibbs.
The Star says Manchester City have £40m reserved for Sterling.
Not too long ago (‘hours’ – ed) Sterling was surely heading to Real Madrid, where he’d link up with former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez.
Newly sat in the Real Madrid ejector seat, Benitez was very quickly reading aloud from the Real Madrid Big Book Of Transfers:
“We admire [Raheem], that’s no secret – but he is not one of our players so I can’t really comment on him.”
A Real Madrid comment is in actual fact a huge comment that Real want to buy Sterling.
As it is the lad’s gone nowhere.
