According to the Sunday People, Manchester United are looking to do the unthinkable by making a bid for Liverpool contract rebel Raheem Sterling. The two eternal rivals have ceased transfer dealings for a while but Sir Alex Ferguson strongly believes that the teenager is worth the effort.
United are looking at Sterling as a long term replacement for Nani, who has been one of the team’s most inconsistent players. Ferguson is doing an excellent job of building yet another side for the coming years with the likes of Cleverley, Welbeck and Phil Jones learning the ropes and the addition of Sterling to this group of fledglings would be beneficial to both the team as well as the player.
The likes of Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea are closely monitoring the Sterling saga at Anfield and one would expect them to move for the player if talks continue to stall. However, the Mirror believes that Manchester United is a more ideal destination for the 17 year old owing to Fergie’s well-known mastery in the art of fostering talent.
Sterling career has sky rocketed since he got his chance to feature for Liverpool but the club’s inability to offer him little beyond Premier League football may make it difficult for the youngster to remain loyal for too long.
