German giants join race for Liverpool contract rebel

Bayern Munich have joined the list of top European clubs chasing Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

The 20-year-old attacker has emerged as one of the Reds’ star men over the course of the last two seasons, developing from a promising teenager into one of Brendan Rodgers’ nailed on starters while also earning a regular spot in the England set-up.

But despite his importance to the Merseysiders, Sterling’s future remains up in the air with contract negotiations between the player’s representatives and the club stalling.

Reports suggest that Sterling wants a salary of around £150,000-per-week, which is some way above the figure Liverpool want to pay.

This has alerted Bayern boss Pep Guardiola, who sees the winger as a potentially world class star.

The Spaniard is keen to get him to the Allianz Arena quickly, while Man City are also keen.
