Chelsea are the latest side to show an interested in Liverpool contract rebel Raheem Sterling, who has been tipped to leave Anfield this summer if he doesn’t put pen to paper.
The Sun claims the Blues have let it be known they want to be kept informed of the winger’s situation, as Jose Mourinho is fearful of missing out should a bidding war erupt for Sterling’s services in the summer.
This comes just days after the Sun also claimed both Arsenal and Manchester City were willing to pay around £50 million for the 20-year-old.
However, if Liverpool are forced to sell the England international and do not wish to sell to a direct rival, they could exploit the European interest of both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich who, according to the Sun, have been watching Sterling very closely.
Despite Sterling’s refusal to put pen to paper on a new deal – as well as taking part in a rather revealing interview with the BBC where he described possible interest from Arsenal as ‘flattering’ – Sky Sports quote Brendan Rodgers as saying yesterday that the player will be ‘going nowhere’ in the summer.
