Turmoil at Liverpool as star winger asks to leave the club to further ambition

SterlingBBC Sport claim that Liverpool player Raheem Sterling has asked to leave the club and will not sign a new deal with the Reds, meaning our Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are seriously unhappy.

As one of our punters notes, Sterling is getting a whole heap of abuse for his actions and the blame has been levelled solely at the door of his agent, and the fact that the winger is pushing for more and more money in any new deal has certainly made him unpopular.

However, as our landlord notes, should Sterling want to leave to further his ambition and win the league, we think that he would be justified doing that -despite what the Liverpool faithful might think.

Liverpool fans. Do you think that Sterling will actually follow through and leave the club? Does he owe Liverpool more than this? Let us know your thoughts below.
