I wasn’t surprised to see Liverpool knock back United’s inquiry, as reported, about Raheem Sterling.

I can recall Gabriel Heinze trying to go the other way and being told it just wasn’t going to happen. As for Sterling, I don’t think it would be as serious a move as United signing a born-and-bred Liverpudlian like Steven Gerrard, but clearly selling to one another is not something the two clubs like to do.


My view on Sterling has not changed. He is a good player but Liverpool looks like the best place to develop his talent. There is still a lot of room for improvement.
