"Raheem Sterling will not sign new Liverpool deal" – agent

Raheem Sterling wants to leave Liverpool and will not sign a new deal regardless of the offer, his agent has stated.

Sterling has already rejected a deal worth £100,000-a-week and will reportedly tell manager Brendan Rodgers and chief executive Ian Ayre that he wants to leave when he holds talks with them on Friday.

The 20-year-old was criticised for giving an unauthorised interview to the BBC in which he insisted he was not a “money-grabber”, while some have suggested he has received bad advice from his agent Aidy Ward.

Fans appear to be losing patience with the player, with a small section booing him as he collected the club’s Young Player of the Year award earlier this week, prompting Ward to claim that his client will not sign a new contract.
“I don’t care about the PR of the club and the club situation. I don’t care,” Ward is quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard.

“He is definitely not signing. He’s not signing for £700, £800, £900 thousand a week. He is not signing.

“My job is to make sure I do the best with them (my clients). If people say I am bad at my job, or they are badly advised it does not matter.”
Ward went on to suggest that a number of big clubs will make a move for the player, adding: “I am not worried. Worried is making a decision not knowing what is going to happen. Every Premier League club will make a bid for him.”
