Paris Saint-Germain are looking to finance a big move for Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling, and see him as a potential replacement for Manchester United target Adrien Rabiot.

According to the Daily Express Rabiot’s supposedly imminent departure from the Parc des Princes will leave Laurent Blanc with a hole to fill, and the arrival of a player just as young and exciting is deemed necessary.

For some time now Sterling has found himself on PSG’s radar, with his status as one of Liverpool most influential players having been confirmed following the exit of Luis Suarez to Barcelona. Now, with the England international having started this Premier League campaign impressively, it would seem that the Ligue 1 champions are determined to back up their interest with their famous financial muscle.

Sterling move

They face tough competition from Real Madrid, who are also keeping tabs on Sterling’s situation, but their most dogged obstacle with inevitably be Liverpool themselves, who have the youngster at the centre of their plans moving forward. Brendan Rodgers’s setup is largely based around getting the best out of youth, and in Sterling he has a talent who is quickly proving that he has the potential to be a world-class asset in the future.

It’s said that the Reds have already been attempting to tie Sterling down to a new contract which would see his current salary of £30,000-a-week tripled, but PSG won’t be concerned over their capabilities of matching that so long as the deal remains unsigned come next summer.

Replacing Rabiot

Indeed the French champions will push strongly for Sterling is Rabiot leaves the club, as it’s looking increasingly likely he will do so. AS Roma, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea are all in the market for the defender-come-midfielder, and his club have already admitted previously that he is aiming to leave in order to secure first-team football.

The 19-year-old is said to have become unsettled with the lack of action he’s been afforded by Blanc, and won’t hesitate to leave should a suitable offer come in. This means that the odds of PSG moving for Sterling are heightened, unless of course Rodgers can convince him to sign an Anfield extension in the near future.


A potential stumbling block for said deal, from PSG’s angle at least, could be the Financial Fair Play rules which prevented them from landing Angel Di Maria in the summer. Due to earlier infractions the Parisian giants have to raise their own money to fund transfer endeavours, and Sterling isn’t going to come cheap.
