Manchester City plot third bid for Liverpool's Raheem Sterling

Published 8 Comments

Manchester City are preparing to launch their third offer for Liverpool star Raheem Sterling, reports The Telegraph.

The Citizens have already seen offers worth £30million and £40m knocked back by their Premier League counterparts but they are prepared to pay even more.

Liverpool’s transfer committee are determined to get every penny of their £50m asking price but it is not clear whether Manchester City’s renewed bid will meet it.

What is clear is Manuel Pellegrini’s determination to land one of England’s brightest young talents this summer.

Manchester City have a severe lack of homegrown-qualified stars in their current squad and want Sterling to lead a massive transfer spree on the best of British talent.

Determined to leave

They want to seal a deal for Sterling soon and are expected to pursue transfers for a number of other players before the start of the new season.

Sterling himself looks determined to leave Liverpool after rejecting their offer of £100,000-a-week earlier this year.

Premier League interest

The England international was said to be angling for a move back to London where he grew up and both Arsenal and Chelsea have been accredited with an interest.

However, neither are likely to compete with Manchester City on a financial level and it will be down to Sterling, 20, to decide whether his potential can be fulfilled at the Etihad Stadium.
