Liverpool will not sell Raheem Sterling to Manchester United, Sky sources understand.

Liverpool insist Sterling is not for sale, to United or any other club, but with the England winger set on leaving Anfield, a large bid may test their resolve.

Reports on Friday suggested United were potentially interested on signing Sterling, and that Sterling is open to the idea of becoming the first Liverpool player since Allenby Chilton in 1938 to swap Anfield for Old Trafford.

But Sky sources understand that there is no way Liverpool will entertain selling one of their prized assets to their bitter rivals.

Sterling has turned down a £100,000 a week contract offer from Liverpool. There is no shortage of interest from home and abroad since it became clear he wants to leave.

United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Real Madrid have all been linked with him.
