Liverpool are preparing to offer a contract ensuring Raheem Sterling will quadruple his weekly wages from £30,000 to £120,000 in order to keep him at the club despite huge interest from Real Madrid, Metro reports.

The 19-year-old recently signed a contract less than two years ago, but due to his sensational displays for the Reds last season, a host of top European sides have been monitoring his situation.

With the Champions League winners hovering around, Brendan Rodgers isn’t giving them time to talk to Sterling as they are believed to be getting contract talks started right away in order to keep him at Anfield.

Rodgers stated that the English international is an important member of the squad and is one to watch for the future.

He said this week: “This kid is only going to get better. He’s way above the level from when he first came in. Tactically, technically, and what has been beautiful to watch with Raheem has been his maturity.

“He’s turning into a beautiful young man, with all the responsibility. He’s still only 19, but in big games he’s performed and he’s a wonderful talent.”
