Despite their previous setbacks in chase of Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling, Manchester United are prepared to submit an incredible £25million bid for the England international star.
Sterling has been put to a contract stand-off with Liverpool as the young winger has refused to commit his future at Anfield as he does not see the club to help him realize his dreams in near future.
Sterling has been a wanted man with Real Madrid and Manchester City also expressing their interest in signing the player. However, as per Independent, Manchester United will officially make the opening bid for Sterling in coming days.
United’s approach is bound to trigger a transfer war for the player with other clubs signaling their intent to sign the player as well.
Former Liverpool boss and the new Real Madrid’s new manager Rafa Benitez clearly stated his admiration for the Liverpool star and believes it is hard to ignore a player of Sterling’s caliber if made available.
Benitez said: “We admire Raheem, that’s no secret – but he is not one of our players so I can’t really comment on him,”
Sterling has 2 years left on his contract and there have been suggestions in the past that Sterling might buy-out his remaining contract in order to force a move out of the club.
Sterling has been interested to a move in London with Arsenal and Chelsea closely monitoring the player.
Despite all these scenarios, Manchester United are ready to press ahead with a £25million move for Raheem Sterling. Liverpool have previously quoted to have asked £40-50million for the player.
