Liverpool fans are looking shocked here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Mirror claim that Real Madrid are chasing after one of their forwards – and it is not the one that bites fellow players!
Real Madrid are concerned over the fitness of star man Cristiano Ronaldo and have therefore decided to consider back-up options this summer, with Reds winger Raheem Sterling being top of their wishlist.
Now as one of our punters claims, selling Luis Suarez is one thing, but allowing any other player to exit is quite another.
We thing that Brendan Rodgers will hold firm and keep Sterling this summer. Our residents Reds fanatics wonder if the interest from the Champions League winners is even genuine and an offer of £25 million will not be on the cards for at least another year.
The injury concerns over Ronaldo were real but now the player and Real Madrid doctors have claimed that he will take two months off and be fully fit come the start of next season, meaning that we seriously doubt that a bid for Sterling is imminent.
Liverpool fans. Would you consider selling Sterling if a bid came in? Is this just pure paper talk and speculation? Let us know your thoughts below.
