Liverpool transfer rumours
Manuel Pellegrini is under increasing pressure at the Etihad Stadium after an awful run of form in recent games, and the Chilean is now determined to make Sterling his next big-name signing.
The England winger has been in fine form for Liverpool over the last year or so, establishing himself as one of the best young players in the world.
