Liverpool are considering making a shock move for Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling this summer, according to L’Equipe, as translated by Sport Witness.

Sterling, who departed Liverpool for Manchester City for a transfer fee of £49 million back in the summer of 2015, has developed into a top player.

Sterling’s potential was always there to be seen at Anfield, but he was still very young when he represented the first XI, meaning he was somewhat inconsistent.

However, since signing for Manchester City, he has turned himself into one of the best players in the Premier League.

Despite the fact that Sterling has gone on and achieved s0me incredible success at the Etihad Stadium, it is difficult to find many Liverpool supporters who are proud of what the Englishman has achieved.

This all stems from the fact that he forced his way out of Anfield, which left many on the Kop feeling betrayed.

Regardless of what has occurred in the past,  L’Equipe believe that Sterling, 25, could reunite with the Reds this summer, especially if Manchester City’s European ban is upheld.

A member of Sterling’s entourage has also hinted at a Reds reunion: “Even if Raheem is attached to Manchester City, he hasn’t forgotten Liverpool, because that’s where he became who he is as a man and as a player.

“Of course, there was controversy surrounding his exit, but since then, time has run its course and everything is possible.”

I would be shocked if Liverpool and Sterling ever reunited. Sterling’s exit was horrific. I have not spoken to a Liverpool supporter that has forgiven him.

Sure, he has developed into a top player, but Liverpool aren’t short of attacking options. At this moment and time, Sterling would be a squad player at Liverpool.

If Sterling were someone that had no previous association to Liverpool, then there would be many supporters who would want him signed up.

The winger has scored 46 goals and registered 22 assists in the Premier League over the past three seasons. That is a superb return, which highlights his ability, but he left the club in an average manner, which can’t be forgotten.
