Will Manchester City going to make a third bid for sterling?

Manchester City is leaving no stone unturned to strengthen its squad for upcoming Premier League. First they chased Raheem sterling for a while, then Paul Pogba, then Jack Wilshere and now Raheem Sterling again.

Raheem Sterling is a Jamaican-born footballer who plays as a winger for Liverpool and the England national team. The 20-year-old is under contract with Liverpool until 2017 but had turned down £100,000-a-week contract extension offered by Brendan Rodgers to him in April 2015.

Since then Manchester City was chasing sterling and had tabled a bid of £25m with another £5m add-ons for the Liverpool forward in April 2015. Liverpool has rejected the offer and was understood to be holding out £50m for the England star.

Raheem Sterling
City has made improved offer of £40million in last the week for the England star but it was too rejected by the Reds as soon as it made. However, in the knowledge that sterling wants to quit the club and is keen on a move to the Etihad Stadium, the Reds would reluctantly agree to do business if their £50million valuation is met.

So the ball is in City’s court now that weather they will make £50million bid in order to strengthen their squad or not?
