Raheem Sterling ‘Highly Unlikely’ To Go On Tour With Liverpool After Man City Lodge Late £45m Bid

Looks like Liverpool are facing a last-minute split decision on Raheem Sterling after Man City reportedly lodged a late £45million bid for the troublesome little urchin this morning.

After ducking out of training with a conveniently timed bout of illness midweek, yesterday Sterling still found himself named in Liverpool’s pre-season squad that is due to fly out to Bangkok later today.

Having already seen bids of £30million and £40million rejected over the past month or so, City have apparently thrown another £5million into the pot in an attempt to convince Liverpool into leaving Sterling at home so they can continue wooing him Etihad-wards.

As far as the journalists of the land are concerned, it looks like the ingenious ploy may have worked with City now “entering formal negotiations” for Sterling for the first time…

The (increasingly expensive and tedious) saga rolls on.

With every passing day it seems that the outcome is becoming increasingly inevitable. It’s just utterly frustrating how much rigmarole we’re going to have to sit through before we actually see Sterling holding his new City shirt aloft.

Would it kill them to just chuck £50million at Liverpool and have done with it?

    This is old news. Chity have offered £40M with £5M add ons which mean nothing in real terms. Of the £40M we would only get £32M because the rest goes to QPR. Liverpool will not accept the deal, so if they want him it’s £50M cash and no add ons.

      @Billious: It’s not old news. City have “entered formal negotiations” over Sterling for the first time this morning on the back of their £45million offer.

      It’s happening…just very, very slowly as Liverpool eke out as many pennies as they can.

    £50,000,001 not a penny less.

    I don’t think he is a great player. If he is worth $50m, Ashley Young is worth $47m. And Messi $128964 billion
