Man City has reportedly proposed a bid which costs up to thirty million pounds turned down by the Reds. The Reds have turned down the bid offered by Man City worth initial value of twenty five million pounds, which rises to thirty million, for Sterling, prompting the outset of what will certainly be a long transfer saga this transfer window.
At first, it is hard to believe that the first offer at twenty five million pounds is rejected. That is all part of the concert, as what the Reds manager, Brendan Rodgers, likes to say. All this summer the reported price for the England International forward has been at least fifty million pounds, so Liverpool were never fond of any offer below that price, while Man City, or any clubs signaling interest in that striker, are never going to invest that much money as Liverpool has asked for their forward. It is surely an opening gambit to evaluate the water and we will find out how the rest of it will play later on.
On the other hand, it has been rather bizarre that Liverpool will take the offer immediately. Even for appearances, Liverpool has to rebuff the initial offer after determining to ask the player to remain in Anfield. The problem is that Man City apparently will not agree with Liverpool’s asked price tag at fifty million pounds. If only the Liverpool’s manager, Brendan Rodgers, is sticking on the asked price, that sage can be way far from reaching its end.
Regardless of the prices swirling around the player, it is worth noticing how much the player is actually worth. Like any other players, Sterling is worth whatever people are willing to pay and if the reds say they will not sell him unless a bid of fifty million pounds is on their table, then that is what he is worth to the club. Last season, Adam Lallana went for twenty five million pounds and that was deemed by most as being too expensive. Man City are currently in that position with Raheem Sterling.
Whether Raheem Sterling is good enough to determine that sort of outlay is for other clubs to take into account, yet he is not looked anything like a truly expensive player in 2015, that is for certain. It appears that paying that much money on him will be spending money on a potential, rather on a real product of winning leagues and titles.
