Mirror/Alan Nixon - Liverpool land wonderkid with stunning £300,000 contract offer
- Liverpool are giving 15-year-old sensation Raheem Sterling a stunning contract worth £300,000 to join them from QPR.
- The Kop outfit have pushed out the boat for the England youth star who is already rated the 'next big thing' after his appearances for club and country.
- Attacking midfielder Sterling chose to go to Anfield for football reasons, but his financial package is a stunner for a player of his age.
- As a schoolboy Sterling will only be able to earn the basic low wage, but part of the Kop contract includes a three-year 'pro' contract when he turns 17.
- And Sterling's 'camp' will be given a giant signing on fee, worth around £200,000 and spread over the length of his deal at Liverpool until 2014. He is going into their academy in a major coup.
- Liverpool are paying QPR a guaranteed £500,000 with further installments based on the time Sterling spends with them - and his eventual breakthrough to the first team.
- The deal is potentially the biggest for a player of his age and was decided without going to a tribunal. Sterling told Rangers he wanted to leave and would not sign any long contract with them.
- Sterling's decision left both Manchester cubs, Arsenal and Fulham upset. All of them had tried to do a deal but found it hard to agree fees and terms with all of the parties involved.
- City are fuming at the result. Their offer of £1 million was higher than any rival bidder but the youngster fancied Liverpool instead." Mirror
