A transfer away from Liverpool seems increasingly likely for Raheem Sterling as the summer days roll on, but one fan has taken matters into his own hands.

Sadly we are unlikely to see this highly erotic photograph recreated next season.

Sadly we are unlikely to see this highly erotic photograph recreated next season.

Someone has put Raheem Sterling on eBay, such is the extent to which this transfer rumour has turned into a saga.

All City need to do is click 'Buy It Now' #lfc

The post highlights some key Sterling stats, and puts a value of £50 million on the young forward, which is the price Manchester City are expected to pay for him.

In the "Things you should know about Raheem" section, the poster claims:

It's not about how may cars he's going to drive or houses he's got.
He's not a money-grabbing 20-year-old.
It's not about money.
It's never been about money at all.

But the message coming from Sterling's camp, via the press, this summer is that it really isn't about the money, it's about Brendan Rodgers. Perhaps their relationship was doomed after this high profile incident:

During the filming for documentary "Being: Liverpool" three years ago, Raheem Sterling and Brendan Rodgers had a tete-a-tete after the winger (17-years-old at the time) interjected into a diatribe from Rodgers.

Sterling reportedly said "steady" while Rodgers was talking at a training camp in the US, and Rodgers did not take kindly to it, telling him that if he did it again, he'd be on the first plane back home to Liverpool.

So maybe this is true after all...


Update: Eurosport UK have now claimed responsibility for the post!

@BuzzFeedUKFB Sorry guys, but it was us! 😂

Which begs the question...

@Eurosport_UK What are you going to spend the money on?

But sadly the deal fell through...

@BuzzFeedUKFB The Manchester-based buyer has already asked for a refund...
