Liverpool’s forward had been in impressive form this season…
Raheem Sterling is demanding a contract that will see him become the world’s highest paid young player, according to the Daily Mail.

The jet-heeled England international is incredibly highly thought of all around the world, including by manager Brendan Rodgers, who branded him the best young footballer in Europe last April, following Liverpool’s 3-2 win against Norwich.
“Raheem is arguably the best young player in European football at the moment,” Rodgers mused. “If he doesn’t win the PFA Young Player of the Year it’s ridiculous.”
This came after a performance where Sterling had scored twice and provided an assist for then-Liverpool striker Luis Suarez as the Reds extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points.
Since then Sterling has won the European Golden Boy award but the award which Rodgers mentioned eluded him and went to Chelsea’s Eden Hazard instead,who will now sign a five year contract at £200,000 a week.
Unfortunately for Liverpool it is a hard task trying to guess how much their star talent should be worth and should demand in terms of wages every week due to the vast differences in the market.
In terms of young players there are the likes of Paul Pogba, who according to his agent Mino Raiola is the ‘Mona Lisa of football’, who is paid £70,000 per week and at the other end of the spectrum there is Luke Shaw, playing in an under-performing Manchester side this season, who earns £120,000 per week.
Liverpool fans will be crossing their fingers, whatever the offer on the table for Sterling is, that he signs the deal as losing him and Luis Suarez within two seasons of each other will surely knock their ambitions sideways.
