Bayern Munich are lining up a surprising move for Liverpool’s starlet Raheem Sterling, should they not tempt Borussia Dortmund into selling Marco Reus.
The Bundesliga champions are particularly keen to capture the German international, but Reus is not necessarily keen to move to another Bundesliga side.
He has seen the unrest that happened when both Robert Lewandowski and Mario Gotze moved to Dortmund’s rivals.
Reus does not want to be at the centre of the same sort of furore.
As a result, Bayern might turn to Liverpool’s Sterling.
Sterling has a contract issue brewing with the Reds, having turned down an offer of £70,000 a week to renew his deal.
The England international believes that he is worth far more than that, having had his breakout season last campaign.
If Bayern Munich can match his demands for a new contract, the size of the German club might mean that they can tempt him into a switch, according to the Daily Star.
