The saga seemed to have quietened down for a few months. But yesterday, the controversy surrounding Raheem Sterling sparked up once more, with reports suggesting the winger is expected to ask for a move away from Liverpool this summer.

His current contract runs until 2017, and last month the 20 year old rejected a new £100,000 a week deal. Sterling told Brendan Rodgers he wants to go before the Chelsea game on 10 May and will now meet the Reds manager and chief executive Ian Ayre on Friday.

The Anfield club have reacted by insisting he will stay on Merseyside, but how have Twitter users reacted? Beware, there’s some angry Liverpool fans in store…

I’ll start with former Reds player Didi Hamann, who thinks the loss of Sterling wouldn’t affect Liverpool too much.

Mirror journalist John Cross can understand Sterling’s side of the story.

Fellow journo Tony Barrett of The Times believes Sterling’s agent is just following orders from his client.

Paddy Power may be joking around with their clever play on words, but I think it could be valid advice.

Here come the Liverpool fans…

I’ll finish with this guy, who is critical of Liverpool fans such as those above. Is he right?
