Manchester United are set to make a dramatic bid for their main rivals' star man, according to the Mirror, with a £25m offer for Raheem Sterling.
The unsettled England youngster has made it clear that he'd rather go back to playing Sunday League than wear a Liverpool shirt next season, with constant rejections of contract deals.
The 20-year old's long-running dispute with the club over wages has been played out very publicly, which has turned the fans against him, leaving very little chance of a return.
This is all good news to Liverpool's rivals Man Utd, who know how much Sterling will want Champions League football next season, along with his fat wage packet.
It would be a harsh blow for Liverpool fans and the club have blocked a move in the past, but as the gulf in quality between the two clubs widens with the retirement of Gerrard, can Liverpool even be considered a real threat to United's quest for the league next season?
