French giants Paris Saint-Germain are ready to triple Raheem Sterling’s wages in a bid to exploit his contractual stand-off with Liverpool.
The 19-year-old England winger is in a dispute with the Merseyside club, who are keen to extend his £43,000 a week deal, which has more than two years left to run.
While Sterling has never said he wants to leave Liverpool, the club are hoping he will accept around £20,000 per week more.
But cash-rich PSG – bankrolled by the Qatar Investment authority – are willing to dwarf that and have not ruled out offering Sterling a six-figure weekly wage to secure him.
