Talking to BBC Sport this week, Raheem Sterling claimed: “I don’t want to be perceived as a money-grabbing 20-year-old.

“It’s not about the money at all. It’s never been about money. I talk about winning trophies throughout my career. That’s all I talk about.

“I just want to focus on football and, when it gets to the end of the season, assess my position as a 20-year-old player playing in the Premier League.”
