Paris Saint-Germain are ready to offer Raheem Sterling a 200% pay rise in order to lure him away from Liverpool, according to the Independent.

The England starlet has been Liverpool's strongest performer in 2014, helping them to second place in the Premier League last season, while he already has three goals in seven league appearances this term.


The 19-year-old has been locked in contract negotiations with Liverpool for some time now, and the lack of progress over an agreement has started to cause concern amongst the club's fans.

It was previously reported that Real Madrid were contemplating a surprise swoop for the Liverpool youngster, but according to reports it is Paris Saint-Germain who are now the most keen.

Pay rise

The French giants are said to be willing to offer him a massive pay rise, from his current £43,000-per-week pay packet to an eye-watering £129,000-per-week in order to persuade him to move to the Parc des Prince.

Sterling is in no rush to commit his future to Liverpool which has put his suitors on alert, while also causing concern amongst the powers that be at Anfield. There is no suggestion that he's unhappy, and he has two years remaining on his current contract.

One issue could be that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is unwilling to hand young players huge new contracts straight away, preferring to reward their performances with incremental increases over time. 


That approach is admirable but it could well end up costing him, with Europe's biggest clubs sniffing around Sterling, who is amongst the most talented youngsters around. 

Sterling may be looking on enviously at some of his fellow young England team-mates such as Calum Chambers and Luke Shaw - both of whom moved clubs this summer and signed deals reportedly worth £60,000 and £90,000-per-week respectively.

Liverpool bagged a much-needed 2-1 win against West Brom yesterday, with goals coming from Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana.
