Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling has admitted former team Liverpool will always be in his heart and failed to deny Anfield return.
The England attacker came through Liverpool’s academy and made his PL debut for the club at 17 in 2012.
Sterling’s impressive displays for the Reds earned him a big-money move to the Citizens, where he has gone on to win two league titles and an FA Cup.
Speaking on the Instagram account of his agents Colossal Sports Management, Raheem said: ‘Would I ever go back to Liverpool? To be honest with you, I love Liverpool.
‘Don’t get it twisted, they are always in my heart, do you know what I mean? ‘It’s a team that done a lot for me growing up.’
Raheem left the club in controversial fashion over a public dispute with head coach Brendan Rodgers regarding his contract situation and wage demands.
Whenever the Englishman has faced his former club, he has been met by a chorus of boos from the Liverpool supporters.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are just two wins away from picking up their first Premier League title in over 30 years.
The coronavirus outbreak has put a stopper on any early celebrations, with all Premier League games postponed until at least April 30.
Meantime, Manchester United are allegedly set to do battle with Liverpool and Real Madrid for the landing of Lille striker Victor Osimhen.
The 21-year-old star has enjoyed a stellar season for the French side during the 2019-20 season, scoring 13 goals in 27 Ligue 1 outings.
Liverpool have been linked with a swoop for the Nigeria international recently, and according to Le 10 Sport, the Red Devils have joined the race to sign the highly-rated striker.
