Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has written in The Independent that Raheem Sterling should not leave Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
The future of the 20-year-old England international winger has generated plenty of speculation in recent weeks, with The Daily Mail reporting last month that both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are interested in his services.
Earlier this week, The Mirror claimed that North London outfit Arsenal could make a move for Sterling at the end of the season.
Former United midfielder Scholes has advised the 20-year-old to remain put at Liverpool.
“When it comes to his future, my view is that Raheem Sterling should stay at Liverpool,” Scholes wrote in The Independent.
“They have elevated him from the junior sides and he has a manager who has built a team around him. He plays every week. What more do you need at that age?”
Scholes’s advice is sound, and something that Sterling should heed. The youngster is a regular in the Liverpool team, and he should cherish that.
Sterling is one of the best young players in Europe, and working with manager Brendan Rodgers is only going to help him grow and develop.
If the English youngster does leave Liverpool in the summer, then at his new club, he will have to earn his place in the team. That will be far from easy, even for someone as talented as Sterling.
