Legendary Liverpool striker, John Aldridge has tipped Jordan Ibe for a great career ahead of him and has gone on to say that the young Englishman will even surpass Raheem Sterling if he continues to develop.
Aldridge says that selling Raheem Sterling to Manchester City is a win win situation for all concerned parties especially the Reds as they have already a replacement standing in the waiting in the shape of Ibe and has asked the club to cash in on a player who no longer wants to stay at Anfield.
“Brendan Rodgers should let Raheem Sterling leave for Manchester City now,” he wrote on sports social network Kicca.
“The sooner he leaves the better for all involved. All this transfer talk is making a mockery of Liverpool Football Club.
“Raheem is obviously a hugely talented player but Liverpool have a top replacement in Jordon Ibe.
“I think he’s got as much, if not more, potential than Raheem and will go on to be a better player.
“Sterling is obviously too young to think for himself so his agent (Aidy Ward) has been doing his thinking for him.
“For the sake of Liverpool Football Club they should take the millions on offer and then everybody will be better off.
“Raheem will be a bit richer and Liverpool will be rid of a player who doesn’t want to play for the club. It’s a win-win.
“Manchester City are a big club and Raheem will get paid well and play Champions League football so he will be happy.”
