Conference Premier side Macclesfield Town wants in on the bidding war for Liverpool contract rebel Raheem Sterling. And they are going to the masses to help fund their bid.
The Silkmen have created a crowdfunding campaign targetting £50 million, to match Liverpool’s evaluation of the player. They have achieved £18 right now despite misspelling Raheem Sterling’s name.
From their crowdfunding page: “Everybody at Macclesfield Town were delighted to hear that Liverpool FC have reportedly set a value on Raheem Sterling. Press reports indicate that the Reds are looking for around £50million for the young England international.
Now, due to the cost of launching a World Cup bid, Macclesfield Town Football Club are obviously running a little low when it comes to funding a move for Raheem, so we are looking for your help in bringing Raheem to Macclesfield!
We aim to raise the easily achievable sum of £50,000,000 to fund a transfer bid for Sterling. While Raheem may struggle to adapt to the physicality of the Vanarama National League his technique would be ideal for the division.
Admittedly, the move would be a little step down from the Premier League, but we here at Macclesfield Town can guarantee that Raheem wouldn’t have to sit on the bench and watch a 6-1 defeat at Stoke City.”
So please throw your support in helping raise the transfer fee to bring Stirling to Macclesfield. This player could be the difference in helping us retain the Cheshire Cup next season.
In the unlikely event of the Silkmen being outbid by the likes of Manchester City, any funds raised will be used to fund a bid for another star attacker. While we are on the subject, has anybody got a number for Lionel Messi?
