Manchester City have a five-year deal with the player but cannot extend it by another 12 months, as per the report.
The forward is considered one of the best in England and would be on the final year of his contract next summer.
With the latest stalling in the player’s contract, some Liverpool fans turned the clock back and shared their thoughts on the former Red.

Be wanting more money as he’s all about the money is Sterling, why he left Liverpool

Let me guess. He’s asked for a million pound a week?

Let me guess: Sterling had a clear shot at a deal, but blew it?

His agent is to blame for all the hate he now gets…no one had a problem with him when he was at Liverpool.
