Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has refused to rule out a move back to Anfield in the future.

Sterling, who departed Liverpool for Manchester City for a transfer fee of £49 million back in the summer of 2015, has turned into a serious footballer under the guidance of Citizens manager Pep Guardiola.

Those associated with Liverpool could see the talent that Sterling possessed during his time at the club, but the Englishman forced a move to Manchester, which did not go down well with the Anfield faithful.

However, despite how Sterling’s time ended at Liverpool, he has not ruled out a return to Anfield.

As quoted by the Mirror, Sterling said: “Would I ever go back to Liverpool? To be honest with you I love Liverpool.

“Don’t get it twisted, they are always in my heart. It’s a team that done a lot for me growing up.”

Sterling would never be welcomed back at Liverpool. That is just the reality of the situation.

Liverpool supporters are still angry about how he forced a move away from the club, and with those feelings still present, the club would not make an effort to bring back the Englishman.

However, it was nice to hear Sterling give his former club some credit.
