Liverpool’s much hyped 17-year-old attacker Raheem Sterling’s family could be upping sticks and leaving Merseyside for a return to London, it has been claimed today.
Unhappy with her son’s progress on Merseyside since signing for the club two years ago, Sterling’s mother is apparently considering whether the England Under-18 international would be better off with first team senior football at another club.
Sterling got on the scoresheet again this week when he scored a fine goal against Arsenal Reserves in a 1-1 draw.
The Mirror report that Liverpool must prove to Sterling shortly that he has a future at the club.
He was recently linked with a move to Tottenham this summer.
Sterling signed for Liverpool two years ago from Queen’s Park Rangers for £600,000, but that fee could rise to £5m.
