Raheem Sterling would reject £900,000 a week – agent

Raheem Sterling’s agent says the winger will not sign a new contract at Liverpool even if he is offered “£900,000 a week” by the club.
The 20-year-old’s representative, Aidy Ward, also used a four-letter expletive to describe ex-Red Jamie Carragher, who has criticised Sterling’s actions.
“I don’t care about the PR of the club,” Ward told the Evening Standard.
“He is definitely not signing. He’s not signing for £700, £800, £900 thousand a week. He is not signing.”
He added: “My job is to make sure I do the best with them [my clients]. If people say I am bad at my job, or they are badly advised it does not matter.”
Sterling’s current contract runs until 2017 and he has rejected a new £100,000-a-week deal to stay with the Merseysiders.
He told Reds boss Brendan Rodgers he wants to leave the club before the Chelsea game on 10 May.
The England international is now set to meet Rodgers and chief executive Ian Ayre on Friday where he is expected to formalise his request.
Sterling denied being a “money-grabber” in a BBC Sport interview last month but has come in for some heavy criticism from some of Liverpool’s former players, including Carragher.
“Any of the criticism from current pundits or ex-Liverpool players – none of those things matter to me. It is not relevant.”
