Liverpool have rejected a €35m bid from Man City for Raheem Sterling - reports

The Reds are hoping to hold onto their young England international despite the fact he has rejected a new contract.

LIVERPOOL HAVE REJECTED Manchester City’s €35 million (£25 million) offer for unsettled England forward Raheem Sterling, according to reports.

Sterling has told Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers he wants to leave Anfield to join a club who can offer him Champions League action next season and City have made the first move in what could prove a lengthy saga to settle his future.

According to the Times, City’s bid valued Sterling at €35m, with an additional €7m to be paid in potential add-ons.

But Liverpool are determined to keep hold of their most gifted youngster and have snubbed the approach for the 20-year-old, who has two years remaining on his current €48,000 (£35,000) a-week contract.

It is believed that only an astronomical offer of at least €69m (£50m) could persuade Liverpool to consider letting Sterling leave.

Liverpool remain keen to convince Sterling to sign a new contract, even though he rejected a deal that would have paid him around €138,000 (£100,000) a-week earlier this year.

Sterling’s refusal to commit to Liverpool has angered the club’s supporters, who jeered him at an end of season awards dinner.
