Reports in the Guardian claim that the player and club are ‘nowhere near an agreement’. Sterling has been offered a weekly pay-rise of £40,000, but the England international is not believed to be impressed with the potential deal.

Sterling, whose current deal has more than two years left to run, is on roughly £30,000 with assorted first-team appearance bonuses. Liverpool’s new offer is understood to be £70,000 a week with handsome bonuses for progress in the major competitions.

But now that Liverpool are out of the Champions League and labouring in the Premier League the prospect of additional payments is clearly less likely. It is to be hoped that this is simply usual negotiating practice and that an agreement can be reached to secure the player.

The 20-year-old has established himself as one of the Reds’ most crucial players over the last 18 months, and was one of the key players in the club’s run to second place in the Premier League last season.
