Liverpool fans react on Twitter to reports of Raheem Sterling bid by Manchester City

Manchester City have bid for England winger Raheem Sterling, with the Reds reportedly rejecting the offer.

Liverpool have rejected a huge bid for their young star Raheem Sterling from Manchester City, according to reports in the media such as BBC Sport.

Depending on the source, City's bid for the winger is somewhere between £25 million and £30 million.

Though Liverpool have rebuffed the offer, it promises to be the first move in what may be a long summer of interest in the England international, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Real Madrid all credited with interest in the player at one point or another.

Sterling's support among Liverpool fans has dwindled after news emerged in March that he was unwilling to discuss a new contract until the end of season, telling BBC Sport that he wasn't a money grabber after snubbing a £100,000 a week offer.

This quickly escalated, reportedly via his representatives, into rumours the 20-year-old was unwilling to sign a new deal, even "if £900k a week was offered" his agent Aidy Ward is quoted as saying in sources such as the Mirror.

With the Anfield faithful growing frustrated by their former hero's actions, despite manager Brendan Rodgers claiming Sterling will be going nowhere, what would be the best possible outcome of the dilemma.

Supporters took to Twitter to express their opinions on the matter:
