Brendan Rodgers rejects Raheem Sterling speculation

Brendan Rodgers rubbishes reports that Liverpool will offer Raheem Sterling another contract extension to thwart Real Madrid's advances.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has refuted speculation that Raheem Sterling is to be offered a contract extension amid reported interest from Real Madrid.

Reports on Thursday had suggested that Liverpool were keen to tie Sterling - whose existing contract expires in 2018 - to another new deal, having only signed one in January 2013.

It is reportedly a preemptive move to thwart the Spanish giants, who are rumoured to be offering to quadruple the youngster's wages should he join the Blancos.

Asked about a potential extension, Rodgers told reporters: "That's the first I've heard of it.

"He's a young player who'll be looked after here at the club, but you know more than me if that's the case."

The 19-year-old winger was a driving force for the Anfield club last season, scoring 10 times to help the Reds finish second in the Premier League.
