QPR included 25% sell-on clause in Sterling deal.
Queens Park Rangers could profit handsomely if Liverpool sell Raheem Sterling to Real Madrid in a rumoured £60m deal, according to the Daily Mail.
The London club saw Sterling snapped up by the Reds back in 2010 when he was still an unknown youngster, and he has since gone on to become one of the most sought-after talents in Europe after some fine performances in the last year or so.
Still only 19 years of age, Sterling is regarded as one of Liverpool’s most important players, and the club are desperate to tie him down to a new contract as Real continue to monitor his situation at Anfield.
The England international will come up against his old club in the Premier League today, and it could be that his fine form will still benefit the Loftus Road outfit as they stand to claim 25% of any transfer fee Liverpool sell him for in the future.
This could see QPR land £15m if Sterling makes the move to the Bernabeu in a big-money deal, even though the club initially only sold him for £500,000.
The money would no doubt be useful for Rangers, who face possible punishment for breaching Financial Fair Play rules.
