Following last Friday’s cancellation of purported talks between Raheem Sterling and Liverpool, the player’s future at Anfield has began to come into questions. He was left on the bench during the club’s last league match at the weekend, a game they went on to woefully lose in the 6 – 1 thrashing away at Stokes.
Recent reports now say that the winger did put a Phone call through to the club’s chief executive, Ian Ayre expressing his desires for a Liverpool exit once the season ends. The call seemed his only option after his agent’s comments infuriated the club’s management. It was reported his agent claimed a pay of 900,000 pounds per week wouldn’t make his client stay as he wants to call time on his stay. Liverpool had earlier offered him an improved deal which he vehemently turned down. During the Stoke city pre-match warm up, angry fans were heard chanting “There’s only one greedy bastard”.
With him bent on leaving Liverpool, it gives Chelsea the boost of picking up his signature as he is said to want a London club. But the coach and club’s director’s insistence on him seeing out the remaining part of his deal continues to pose a great problem for potential suitors. However, it is been said that a fees of 50 million pounds will be the least he will be traded for, if they agree to trade him.
