Raheem Sterling was an exceptional young talent at Liverpool, shining during the 2013/14 season, in particular.

The 24-year-old has since blossomed into a world-class player at Manchester City, with few attackers on the planet more devastating on his day.

Sterling’s influential performances have seemingly caught the eye of Real Madrid, who want to sign him, according to Sky Sports News.
