Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling is nowhere near agreeing a new deal with the Anfield club, despite being offered £70,000 a week by the Reds.
This would have provided the wonderkid with a weekly pay rise of £40,000, a staggering sum for a player of his age, but he seemingly has no interest in renewing his deal at that salary.
The Telegraph is reporting that a source close to the situation suggests the player and club are nowhere near an agreement over a new contract.
There is, however, hope that the two parties can reach a resolution in the near future.
While Sterling’s form has been nowhere near as good as it was last season, when he played an integral role in Liverpool’s late charge towards the top of the table, it would be a devastating blow to the Anfield club if they were to lose him.
