Transfer Balls: Raheem Liverpool’s Sterling is exclsuive to Manchester City
In an “EXCLUSIVE” the Daily Express says “Arsenal and Real Madrid join Man City in race for Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling”.
But they don’t. They haven’t. The only bids for Sterling have some from Manchester United (an unofficial enquiry about buying the player for £25m) and Manchester City (£25m plus £5m if he turns out to be any good for them).
John Richardson’s exclusive hangs on not a single fact. All he writes is:
Liverpool are expecting the first official move from the Spanish giants in the next few days while Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is a confirmed admirer of the winger.
Bids from Madrid and Arsenal for Sterling: none.
Such are the facts.
