Chelsea are preparing a sensational bid for Liverpool winger and England international Raheem Sterling. The deal is said to be worth around £48m. Jose Mourinho is set to add the trickery and pacey winger to his team as he continues to build a team that will dominate the premier league and Europe for the next decade.
Raheem Sterling and Liverpool have stalled over a new and improved deal that will see the youngster stay at Anfield for a very long time. It is not clear why the deal has stalled but it is believed that Liverpool are ready to offer Sterling as much as a £100,000 Per week deal.
The player has been linked to other top European clubs chief of them being Real Madrid and French giant Paris Saint-Germain.
Mourinho has however identified the 19-year-old as his primary target and a bid in January transfer window or in the summer could be imminent. Sterling has been on a red hot form for Brendan Rodgers side and its no surprise big clubs will be jostling for his signature.
Chelsea already have array of youngsters at its disposal but will look to continue to attract European best young talent as Jose Mourinho builds a team that will dominate world football for the next ten years.
Liverpool have not started brightly this season and have struggled after the departure of their prolific striker Luis Suarez to Barcelona. Raheem Sterling has been their best performer this season.
It will be fun seeing Mourinho get one over Liverpool again after the Reds were deprive of their first league title in over 20-years last season when Mourinho’s men confined them to a 2-0 home loss thereby ruining their title chances.
Sterling will be a good acquisition for Chelsea. The idea of coming against him and Eden Hazard on both flanks of the Chelsea attack will give defenders nightmares. He is quick and fast on the ball with a well crafted dribbling skills that let him get past opposition defenders with relative ease. His lightning pace will suit the counter attacking style of Jose Mourinho and he can also guarantee goals.
Again, he is English, will count as home grown thus freeing a space for the foreign and non home grown players.
It is yet to be seen if Liverpool will be willing to do business least of it when Chelsea is a rival. But in football they say ‘you never know what will happen’. Both clubs have done business before. Liverpool have never been the one to be shy of doing business when they see a good offer. The cases of Torres to Chelsea and Luis Suarez to Barcelona readily come to mind, and I think £48m should be enough in tempting Liverpool to do business for Raheem Sterling, after all you don’t get that sort of offer for a teenager often.
Jose Mourinho has really began his rebuilding process on a good ground, bringing in young players like Courtios, Zouma and Christensen- through the youth system and now Sterling to join the likes of Oscar, Hazard, Costa, Cesc Fabregas, Mohamed Salah, Willian and Matic. This bodes well for the club and means the club will look to the future with optimism.
