Raheem Sterling Lowers Asking Price On £1.2m Mansion

Raheem Sterling and the mansion he can't sell

England forward Raheem Sterling has cut £300,000 from the price of the mansion he is trying to sell, as his customised residence continues to fail in attracting buyers.

The diminutive wide-man’s mammoth home in Birkdale, Merseyside, has a number of unique features including red floor-lighting in the kitchen and a ‘Michael Jackson’ room complete with minibar.

Sterling, 21, is looking to sell what Rightmove describes as a “four-bedroom detached house” for £1.2million after transferring from Liverpool to Manchester City for £49million last summer.

The player’s mansion woes thankfully do not extend to his new £3.5million abode in Cheshire, where he is happily settled.

Nobody likes to see a footballer suffer and hopefully someone will soon take the property off Raheem’s hands.

After all, for £1.2million you’re not just getting a mansion – there’s a gym, a swimming pool with a red ceiling,  a barber shop, a nine-seater cinema, a car park that could serve a supermarket, and half a basketball court.

Notably the red-furnished cinema is lined with Raheem’s treasured old Liverpool shirts.

Presumably Raheem feels the shirts may be a selling point, but surely they’ll be putting off the multitude of Evertonian millionaires who would otherwise be engaging in a bidding war.

It’s a sad state of affairs when a footballer can’t get a million-pound mansion off his hands; one can’t help but feel that this wouldn’t be happening if we lived in Sol Campbell’s Britain.

Hope may be on the horizon, however, with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp having been promised a big transfer-market spending spree in the summer.  Perhaps one of the many newly rich Bundesliga players heading for the North West can help Raheem out of his hole.
