Bayern Munich have pulled out of the race to sign Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling, according to Bild.

Sterling’s future at the Merseyside club has burdened them for the most part of the season, with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal and Manchester City all linked with a cut-price summer move.

The Reds have been keen to agree a new improved and extended deal with the England international but talks have faltered after beginning around the turn of the year.

According to Sky Sports who reported earlier this month, the winger is ready to call time on his Anfield future, sparking a transfer tussle between those aforementioned clubs.

Bayern Munich were said to be interested, with boss Pep Guardiola reportedly keen to pursue a move for the England international and see him replace Franck Ribery, who has struggled with injuries this season.

However, Bild now report that the Bavarian side have turned their attentions elsewhere and are unwilling to pay his astronomical wage demands.
