Liverpool fans are maintaining that the club cash in on Raheem Sterling this summer but the supporters are demanding the payment received is invested wisely.
Manchester City remain favourites for the signature of the 20-year-old England winger and finally look set to match the Reds £50m asking price, that will give Brendan Rodgers a nice lump-sum to invest into his squad and create a team that can challenge for a top four spot.
However, Liverpool’s recent transfer history is far from impressive and Rodgers has been heavily criticised for spending vast amounts of money in recent years, whilst finishing sixth in the Premier League last season.
Therefore fans don’t seem to trust him too much and are lodging their own transfer suggestions. What would you do with the £50m Liverpool receive for Sterling?
If I was #LFC I’d sell sterling for 45m + Jovetic as exchange. Buy Granit Xhaka, Patrick Herrmann

#LFC should sell Sterling but need to buy wisely – a signing like Carlos Bacca would be ideal. Huge season for Rodgers has to show progress

Id hope we get all our transfers in first before we sell Sterling. Dont want inflated prices once teams know we have money.
