Brendan Rodgers insists that he is relaxed about Raheem Sterling's future after the teenager was linked to Real Madrid.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has rejected speculation surrounding Raheem Sterling's future at the club.

The 19-year-old is believed to have attracted interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid due to his scintillating form.

Despite rumours that Madrid will try to lure Sterling away from Anfield next summer, Rodgers has insisted that he is relaxed about the England international's future.

"You could link Raheem with every club in the world at the moment," Rodgers told reporters. "I sit easy with it. Sterling's still got three years left on his contract, so there's no rush from my side."

Sterling is expected to feature in this weekend's Merseyside derby against Everton on Saturday.
