Liverpool ace will join Real Madrid this summer, says expert

Spanish football expert Paul Breen-Turner has told talkSPORT that Real Madrid will be using their vast levels of TV rights money to pursue a summer deal for Liverpool star Raheem Sterling.

The 20-year-old attacker has developed into one of the Reds’ key men over the course of the last 18 months with his pace, guile and trickery key components in Brendan Rodgers’ attacking set-up.

But despite his importance on Merseyside, Sterling’s future at Anfield remains a little unclear.

The England international’s current contract expires at the end of next season, and his decision to reject a second offer of fresh terms recently has led to suggestions that Real Madrid are interested in him.

Should Sterling enter the final year of his deal, Liverpool’s stance in negotiations would be heavily altered, and Breen-Turner says that the European champions are already lining up a move:

“How can it be fair that these two clubs (real and Barcelona) are slaughtering their own league with an unfair distribution of TV rights which enables them to come and take the best player from the Premier League every single season – whether that is Gareth Bale, David Beckham or Luis Suarez,” he said.

“And Raheem Sterling will be next, by the way, because I am hearing he will be gone from Liverpool and will probably be at Real Madrid next season.”
