Man Utd Buy Could Cost Liverpool Their 19 Year Old Starlet – reports

Liverpool’s young star Raheem Sterling has been targeted by Real Madrid for a potential move when the transfer window reopens, as reported by the Daily Star.

The move could be funded by the money the Spanish club have received from the transfer of Angel Di Maria, meaning that fierce rivals Manchester United would contribute directly to the loss of a talented young forward.

The huge fee paid by Man Utd was seen as significantly inflated, and it now seems as though without the £59.7 million fee paid, Real would not have thought to target Sterling.

This is an issue for Liverpool, because the Anfield club have not signed Sterling to a new deal since he emerged as one of the best players in the Premier League.

He is on only £30,000 a week, which is a small sum compared to his teammates and what Real could offer him.

This is part of Brendan Rodgers’s policy regarding young talent.

The manager has said in the past, regarding Sterling’s contract situation: “When you reward young players too quickly – Raheem’s still only 19 – you give them too much too early and that will be their downfall. It’s a big problem because they lose their hunger.”

As a result, the young star is reportedly being targeted by Real, who could significantly increase his wage packet.

Arsenal And Chelsea To Wage War Over 15-Year-Old Wonderkid

Arsenal and Chelsea are locked in a battle to capture the 15 year old wonderkid goalkeeper Mile Svilar, with fellow Premier League side Manchester United also said to be interested in his signature, as reported by the Daily Star.

Svilar is the son of former Yugoslavia keeper Ratko Svilar, and is considered to be a talented young prospect.

Despite the fact that Ratko confirmed to the Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad that the player is on the cusp of signing professional terms with Anderlecht, where he has begun his career, there are suggestions that he could yet make a move to one of the Premier League giants.

Ratko himself has said that all three of the English sides mentioned in this article have expressed an interest, with Arsenal specifically hoping to bring him in for a trial.

He said: “He was at Chelsea. And Manchester United also enquired. Everyone wants him.

“We already have an agreement with Anderlecht, even though he can’t sign a contract until his 16th birthday.

“Nowhere would be better for him, he is beautifully guided. From his 20th birthday, we’ll see. It’s not just talent and luck, it is also hard work.”

 

 

Given Ratko’s successes, Svilar should be something of a prospect, and his father has also suggested as much.

He added: “I was 1.84 metres, he is already 1.85 metres and looks like he is 20. And according to a bone scan he will be 1.92 metres.

“But in any case Mile has the same style of goalkeeping and also my speed.”

Huge Man Utd Blow In Chase For £60m Global Superstar

Manchester United have suffered a blow in their chase for Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo, after the Portuguese international declared that he was not interested in a move away from the Madrid club, as reported by the Daily Star.

The club are very keen to bring the forward back to Old Trafford, and have supposedly earmarked a £60 million sum to facilitate a transfer for the player.

There is other interest in bringing him back to the Premier League, with Chelsea said to be a side who are potentially interested in him, although manager Jose Mourinho has denied any from the Stamford Bridge club.

Further interest exists elsewhere in Europe, with Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint Germain also said to be keen on his signature.

However, the sensation has denied any interest in a move, and has said that he is focused on his future at Real.

He said: “It’s nothing important, what’s important is Madrid. On a personal level, things are going well and I want to help this shirt. I don’t see a need to talk about things outside the club.

“It’s all speculation, speaking about my future… My future is Madrid. I’m happy. The season is going well and I’m not talking about my future, it doesn’t make sense.”
