A large section of people in England might be criticizing Raheem Sterling for not showing any loyalty to Liverpool and being rigid on a transfer, but, John Terry has a slightly different view.
Terry believes Sterling is well within his rights to aspire to be a part of a big club and he does not deserve all the flak that is coming his way.
It’s not about money for Sterling at the moment. The reports say that the Reds are ready to make him stay with a lucrative deal, but, the striker is said not to be looking to extend his spell at Merseyside.
He wants to have a different challenge in his hands now.
One of the two topmost clubs going around in World Football, Manchester City and Real Madrid, are believed to be amongst those which desire Sterling’s services.
City has even placed bids a couple of times, but, the Liverpool management is no mood to start holding talks on Sterling’s transfer.
They are trying to somehow persuade the player to negotiate with the club as far as a new deal is concerned.
But, as it looks from outside at this point in time, it’s quite tough for Liverpool to hang onto Sterling.
Liverpool has already lost a key man in Luis Suarez in the recent times which has weakened them to a very large extent.
Now, Sterling’s departure is not something that they need.
They already have had a disappointing season, the 2014-15 and it would not leave them in a great shape going into the next one having lost Sterling.
It would be a very interesting next couple of weeks for the fans of Liverpool.
All eyes would be on Brendan Rodgers and the other decision makers at the club.
