Manchester United fans react to news about Raheem Sterling’s potential signing

by Sam Peoples

When news broke last night in the British press on Manchester United inquiring about the availability of Raheem Sterling this summer, social media had a quick meltdown.

The 20-year-old looks likely to leave Liverpool this summer but even entertaining the thought of a move to Man United is, well, outlandish to say the very least. After all, no player has moved directly between the clubs since 1964.

Sir Alex Ferguson completely dismissed Gabriel Heinze’s attempts to join Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers would undoubtedly do the same with Sterling were he to request a move to United.

What did fans think of the news? Overall, there was certainly a mixed bag of reactions:

Like Luis Suarez when he was at the club, Sterling has the ability to worry United when he has the ball at his feet and there’s no doubting his ability on the pitch.

However, it is his off the pitch attitude and approach which has caused so much disdain among Liverpool’s fans, something which should understandably concern United fans.

It will certainly be interesting to see how this story develops over the next couple of months.

What do you think about the Raheem Sterling rumours? Is there any chance he could join Manchester United? Let us know in the comments.
