Liverpool Boss Denies Rumours Linking Stunning Star With Move

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has denied the recent transfer rumours linking his young star Raheem Sterling with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, as reported by the Daily Express.

The last season has seen Sterling develop into one of the top young talents operating in the world game, and it is unsurprising to see him linked with the world’s top clubs.

The England international has had a meteoric rise under Rodgers, and is a regular first team player for both club and country.

However, he has not received a new contract from the Anfield club since appearing for the first team on a more regular basis, and it was suggested that Real thought this was an opportunity that they could exploit.

Rodgers has moved to dismiss this, implying that Sterling will receive a new contract from the Reds in the near future anyway.

He said: “I think it shows that he is playing very well. You could link him with every club in the world. I sit easy with the speculation. Him and his representatives know how comfortable he is here.

“At some point in the future he will be rewarded for his performance but he still has three years left on his contract. There is no rush. ”

He also confirmed that Sterling would play against Everton in the Merseyside derby at the weekend.

Rodgers said: “He had a breather against Aston Villa. He is a super-fit boy and he will be there at the weekend against Everton.”

Mata To Go As Man Utd Line Up Swap Deal For £24m Defensive Star – reports

Manchester United are ready to tempt Atletico Madrid into sanctioning the departure of defender Miranda in January by including former record breaking signing Juan Mata in a deal for the star, as reported by the Daily Express.

The Old Trafford club have no recognised first team central defenders available to them going into this weekend’s tie with West Ham, and it is no surprise that they are looking for reinforcements in that area going into the winter window.

While Michael Carrick is said to be an option for the role, with boss Louis van Gaal’s style complementing him as a defender, it would be a surprise to see the club not add a new defender in January.

Reports suggest Miranda is keen on a move to the Premier League, with Man Utd a possible destination.

While Atletico refuse to drop their £24 million asking price for the 30 year old star, they are interested in signing Juan Mata, and Man Utd could use him as a tool to push through the transfer.

Revealed: Van Gaal Cost Man Utd Signing Of £20m World Class Midfield Maestro

Manchester United had reportedly agreed a deal to sign Toni Kroos this summer, but the sacking of David Moyes and subsequent appointment of Louis van Gaal seemingly caused the German international to make a dramatic U-turn on his future.

The 24 year old midfield maestro had given his consent to a transfer to Old Trafford prior to this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

The sacking of David Moyes and Louis van Gaal’s appointment apparently caused the Real Madrid star to reconsider the move, as suggested by former Norway international Jan Aage Fjortoft on Twitter.

With his contract expiring at the end of the current season, Bayern Munich were forced to sell Kroos to Real for a cut-price £20 million, despite seeing their star play a key role as Germany won the World Cup.

Van Gaal has strengthened the midfield with Ander Herrera and Daley Blind, but Man Utd fans will surely be wondering what might have been.
