Liverpool star Sterling to be offered nearly triple his wages in France

Raheem Sterling

Paris Saint-Germain are said to be keen on snapping up Raheem Sterling.

Liverpool fans were over the moon earlier in the week when the club announced they had agreed a new long-term contract with Daniel Sturridge. The England international has been rewarded for his good form at the club and is now signed on until 2019 at Anfield.

But they also want to do the same with Raheem Sterling. The attacking midfielder has been looked to in the absence of the departed Luis Suarez and injured Sturridge to be Liverpool's star player and more often than not that has been the case.

Liverpool know that envious eyes are setting their sights on Sterling. Real Madrid are believed to be keen on his talents, with contract talks being kept tabs on.

But a new, and perhaps more potent threat has now emerged - in the form of Paris Saint-Germain.

The French side are said to be keen on Sterling according to The Independent and are willing to pay to do so.

The 19-year-old signed a new deal at the club in December 2012, so there is no fear of him leaving anywhere on a free. However he now wants to be among the top earners at the club considering his excellent displays, so wants a big rise on his current deal, reported to be worth £42,000-a-week.

The same report however claims Liverpool are willing to offer up to around £20,000-a-week more, taking his earnings between the £60-£70, 000-a-week bracket.

The problem is PSG. They are swimming in money, even if Financial Fair Play has curtailed their spending this summer they still splashed it out on David Luiz.

They are said to be willing to spend a six-figure sum on the player, almost tripling his current wages at Liverpool.

With those financial incentives on offer and his agent playing the transfer market like a flute, Liverpool fans growing concerns over Sterling's future at the club.
