Liverpool are considering making a sensational swoop to re-sign Raheem Sterling from Premier League rivals Manchester City, according to a recent report by L’Equipe, as translated by Sport Witness.
The 25-year-old winger departed Anfield for the Etihad Stadium five years ago, where Sterling has since matured into a world-class player.
This latest report claims that City could have to sell Raheem if their European ban is upheld, however, and that a member of his representative has hinted about a Reds reunion:
“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.
“Of course, there was controversy surrounding his exit, but since then, time has run its course and everything is possible.”
While things ended on a sour note for Raheem at Liverpool, fans should want him back at the Reds. He is still relatively young and Sterling has become one of Europe’s most prolific wide men, netting 46 goals and registering 22 assists in the Premier League during the past three seasons.
Not only could he provide competition for Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, but the England international is also a few years younger, and could make up for Sadio or Mohamed leaving further down the line.
Not only that, but landing him from City could weaken the Reds’ most direct rivals significantly when you consider what an important figure he has been for them.
Only the Argentina international Sergio Aguero has netted more Premier League goals for Pep Guardiola’s side this campaign.
