Twitter reacts to Raheem Sterling’s Liverpool bombshell with summer transfer expected
BBC Sport reported that the winger told Rodgers before their clash with Chelsea on May 10 that he wants to leave Anfield, and will hold further talks with the Northern Irish manager and chief executive Ian Ayre at the end of this week.
If the Merseyside club give in to his demands, they are expected to command a fee of £35m for his signature – with Arsenal and Manchester City poised to make an offer.
One Twitter user was hit with the brutal realisation that his Reds jersey with ‘Sterling’ on the back could become redundant at the end of the season, but tuned into his creative mind by blocking out ‘Sterl’ and adding an ‘S’ to the end to read the surname of rumoured summer signing ‘Ings’.
