MANCHESTER UNITED HAVE reportedly entered the race to sign Liverpool attacker Raheem Sterling.

According to The Guardian, United are ready to pounce after Sterling turned down a new contract offer — worth £100,00 per week — to stay with the club he joined at the age of 15.

Louis van Gaal has already spent £25m on bringing Dutch star Memphis Depay to Old Trafford for next season, and although Liverpool would be reluctant to sell to one of their main rivals, the United boss has registered his interest in Sterling nevertheless.

Sterling is set to meet Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and chief executive Ian Ayre tomorrow to discuss his contract stand-off, with Manchester City also seemingly willing to offer the England star a £150,000-a-week deal.

The 20-year-old is contracted to Liverpool until 2017 but was booed by some supporters on Tuesday when he picked up the club’s young player of the year award.
