We’ve already seen both backlash and apathy towards the reports that Raheem Sterling has asked to leave Liverpool this summer — now we want your views.
Several media outlets reported late on Monday night that Sterling is to meet with Brendan Rodgers and Ian Ayre on Friday to confirm his desire to leave Anfield.
It is the latest chapter of a publicly played out saga after months of failed contract negotiations. With Liverpool’s lack of Champions League football next season, for many, the writing was on the wall.
Sterling’s public execution of the whole saga has left many feeling he doesn’t deserve to wear the Red of Liverpool. With that in mind, but also knowing that the Reds may need victory to avoid Europa League qualification rounds next season…
Liverpool have held off players’ attempts to leave the club before — most recently Luis Suarez two summers ago, but with two years left on Sterling’s contract and him not being a fully developed player yet, the attitude this summer could be different.
Big money is being spoken about if Sterling is sold with interest said to be from both Manchester City and Real Madrid.
