City line up big-money raid on Premier League rivals.
Manchester City are reportedly ready to table a mammoth £60m bid to sign Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling, according to the Daily Express.
The 20-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best young talents in the world at the moment and is known to be stalling on signing a new contract at Anfield, putting his long-term future at the club under some doubt.
City now seem ready to rival the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich for his signature, though Liverpool will surely hope to avoid selling their star player to another Premier League side.
City have plenty of money at their disposal, however, and could do with new attacking players out wide due to some inconsistent displays from the likes of Samir Nasri, Jesus Navas and James Milner in that area.
The Premier League champions have previously raided Arsenal for a number of their top players, but now look to be focusing on this key Reds first-teamer, in what would be a major blow for Brendan Rodgers after also losing Luis Suarez to Barcelona this summer.
