Sterling reports blown out of proportion, says agent

The winger’s representative admitted that he would be holding talks with the Reds this week but that his client had not yet decided to leave Anfield

Raheem Sterling’s agent says that reports the winger will ask to leave Liverpool at the end of the season have been blown out of proportion.

The England international will tell manager Brendan Rodgers and chief executive Ian Ayre he wishes to leave Anfield during a meeting scheduled for Friday.

But his representative Aidy Ward feels a too much is being made out of the fact he is meeting with the club before the end of the season.

“The story has been blown somewhat out of proportion,” he said in a statement to talkSPORT.

“Raheem and his representatives have a meeting scheduled with Liverpool later this week, and we will take proceedings from there.”

Sterling has been linked with the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal since revealing he turned down a contract offer of €130,000 a week in April.
