Liverpool star Raheem Sterling received club’s Young Player of the Year award but the player was booed by a section of fans yesterday at the end-of-season ceremony. The player is believed to say that he will leave Anfield this summer after he rejected the contract offered by the Reds.
The 20-year old has two years left in his contract but wants to join another club as he is in search of silverware. He has drawn interest from fellow rivals Manchester city, Chelsea and Arsenal.
When the player is receiving the award, a fan shouted: “Stay, Raheem” and it was followed by boos and jeers from a section of fans out of 3000 fans present there.
Earlier in the season, Sterling rejected a new £100,000-a-week long-term contract and went on to say in an interview that he was not a ‘moneygrabber’ but wanted to win trophies.
The player joined Liverpool from Queens Park Rangers in 2010 and made his first team appearance in 2012. After losing Suarez last season to Barcelona, Liverpool are keen on to hold Sterling this summer as the Reds are currently undergoing transition as Steven Gerrard set to leave this summer.
However if Sterling decides to leave, Liverpool will demand a fee of around £50 million before they would consider selling.
