Liverpool FC have finally decided to take a stand on the Raheem Sterling saga. The top brass of the club have apparently decided not to sell adament youngster Sterling this summer unless top suitor Manchester City offer to pay £50 million. The England international has been adament since the conclusion of last season that he would not continue with Reds and leave the club in this season. He had also reportedly snubbed an offer to renew his contract with better wage. His existing contract expires in 2017.

Liverpool had started their pre-season training since last Monday, 6th July. Raheem Sterling has already missed two days of training in between citing illness. Sterling had also mentioned a few days back that he was not willing to work under current Reds boss Brendan Rodgers and would only stay at the club if he departs. All these incidents have finally taken a toll against him now as English media suggests that Liverpool would take disciplinary actions against the player consulting the PFA. Also they might run down his contract and bench him as an act of punishment.

 

Premier League giants Manchester City have for long been keenly interested in signing the 20-year-old English youngster. They had previously placed to bids which were rejected by Liverpool. Their latest bid will be something around £40million, plus £4m in add-ons. Liverpool on the other hand are determined not to let their player go unless their demands of £50million is met.

Manchester City in that case might not pursue the deal and retract their offers and shift their focus from the player. This would prove to be a big blow to Sterling’s ambition as in that he will be forced to stay at the club and might get benched as well. Yesterday ex-club captain Steven Gerrard had advised Sterling to act maturedly and professionally in the transfer matters. 

The club officials might take strict disciplinary actions against Raheem Sterling in the days to come. A lot of drama is still left in this Raheem Sterling transfer topic.
