Chelsea’s pursuit of Raheem Sterling appears to be over after the Liverpool claimed he is happy at Anfield.
The 20-year-old’s future has been the subject of fervent speculation recently after negotiations over a new contract were put on hold.
Sterling has been one of Liverpool’s most prolific performers since breaking into the first team three seasons ago, and formed one of the most fearsome attacks in world football with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge when Liverpool nearly won the league in 2014.
Sterling’s contract runs out in 2017 and it was widely reported that he was a target for many clubs in the next transfer window such as Chelsea, Arsenal and Real Madrid after apparently turning down a new contract worth £100,000- a-week.
However, Sterling refutes that and insists his future is with Liverpool. BBC quotes him as saying: “Everyone’s dream growing up is seeing themselves in an away kit somewhere in a sunny country.
“But, in reality, I’m happy to be playing for Liverpool and trying to win trophies.”
