Liverpool’s Sterling ‘wants 25% more than Neymar’

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists he is “relaxed” about Raheem Sterling’s contract situation despite claims that the latest discussions have failed to find a solution to a long-running impasse.
The club have tabled what a couple of weeks ago Rodgers described as an “incredible” offer – reported to be in the region of £100,000 a week.

But The Sun has reported that Liverpool’s offer is “nowhere near” matching what Sterling wants, adding that the 20-year-old has now refused to take part in any more negotiations until the end of the season.
£150k or I walk
A few weeks ago the Reds boss had suggested an agreement was imminent but latest reports suggest there has been no movement in negotiations.
Sterling only signed an improved contract in December 2012 and his current deal does not expire until 2017, which is why Rodgers is content to play a waiting game.
“There is nothing new to report on it. I am quite relaxed about Raheem’s situation,” said Rodgers. “He is not going anywhere in a hurry – he has still got this season and another couple of years to go on his contract.
“I think it is quite obvious when you look at Raheem’s situation anyone with Raheem’s best interests would see Liverpool as the best option for his career.
