Real Madrid may boast of arrays of talents from different countries in their squad but the quest for snapping up talents will never be quenched. The Los Merengues are plotting a move for Liverpool and English football’s brightest and youngest star - Raheem Sterling.

The move, which is being mooted for next summer, may see the Jamaican born 19-year-old switch sides from Anfield to the Bernabéu with a significant raise from his meager £30,000-a-week deal.

Carlo Ancelotti is said to have moved Sterling to the top of his transfer wish list ahead of next summer as he continues to be in awe of Sterling form for Liverpool and England. According to NBC ProSoccerTalk, he could even be lined up as a Cristiano Roinaldo replacement, after so many rumors and links have swirled up between the Portuguese superstar and his former club of residence, Manchester United. 

It is clear that Sterling is one of the lowest earners in Liverpool, with his current salary of £30,000-a-week, but Liverpool are said to be reluctant to give him a new deal and a raise.

“Raheem is a kid who has propelled himself on to another level. He got rewarded for that and that will always be the case here but we have to be careful because, when you reward young players too quickly, that will be their downfall," Rodgers said back in August, according to The Telegraph.

“It’s a big problem with British players. Why? Because the reward is no longer there, they lose their hunger."

“Young players driving about – I say driving about, they buy a new Range Rover Sports before they have even got their driving licence.”

This is a big cue for Real Madrid to pounce in and tempt Sterling with a mega offer and chance to play with some of the world’s finest footballers including current Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Despite posting huge debts to the tune of about £400 million a couple of days ago, Real Madrid will be primed to do business next season with significant revenue gotten from Angel Di Maria’s sale to Manchester United. A large chunk of the cash will suffice in tempting Liverpool with an audacious bid.
