Sterling To Make Sensational Liverpool Return?

Despite controversially forcing through a transfer from Liverpool to Manchester City in 2015, England star Raheem Sterling is reportedly considering a sensational return to his former club.

Sterling began his professional career under former manager Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool, where he developed into one of the best young players in the world, scoring 29 goals in 123 appearances for the Reds. 

Things went south between the player and club in 2015, however, when the forward rejected a new deal in order to push through a move to City, and he joined the Mancunians for a then-English record of £49 million (R1 billion).

Sterling has gone from to strength to strength with the reigning Premier League champions since, winning no fewer than seven major honours as well as the 2018/19 FWA Footballer of the Year and PFA Young Player of the Year awards.

The England international could be set for a sensational return to his former stomping ground, however, after French publication L'Equipe reported that he is considering a return to Anfield at the end of the season.

These reports were expanded on by the Daily Mail, which claimed that one of Sterling's representatives refused to categorically dismiss claims of a sensational reunion with the current European champions.

"Even if Raheem is attached to Manchester City, he hasn't forgotten Liverpool, because that's where he became who he is as a man and as a player," the unnamed representative is reported to have said.

"Of course, there was controversy surrounding his exit but, since then, time has run its course and everything is possible."

The reports follow after Sterling recently admitted that he still "loves" Liverpool and that the club will always hold a place in his heart, but it remains uncertain as to whether or not the Reds and their supporters would welcome the 25-year-old back with open arms.
