Liverpool appear set to lose Raheem Sterling as Manchester United and Arsenal battle for his signature.

The Sun says talks have stalled over the 18-year-old whizkid’s new Liverpool contract.

And both Arsenal and Manchester United are poised to move in as Sterling has just 18 months left on his current deal.

The forward turned 18 last week and the Kop side expected talks to be a formality.

But Sterling’s progress has been so rapid he is now a wanted man.

He is a first-team regular at Anfield and made his England debut in the 4-2 friendly defeat against Sweden.

It would cause shockwaves if Sterling moved to Old Trafford.

He would become the first player to transfer between the two arch-enemies since Phil Chisnall nearly 50 years ago. But Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers has become anxious about Sterling’s future.
