Sky Sports understand that Sterling is due to meet with manager Brendan Rodgers and chief executive Ian Ayre next week for crunch talks regarding his future.
The 20-year-old starlet still has two years to run on his existing contract. Sterling, having already turned down one contract rumoured to be around £100,000-a-week, says he is motivated by trophies.
Liverpool’s failure to regain Champions League status could well play a part in why Sterling may choose to move on.
The club were quick to comment on the situation and claim their position remains unchanged that the Englishman is not for sale.
This could prove to be one of the biggest transfer stories of the summer and a case of ‘will he, won’t he’ in terms of Sterling to stay or depart.
Will Sterling leave Liverpool this summer? Is it the right time for him to move on?
