It has recently been reported by the Daily Mirror that Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling is going to be the subject of a bid from Real Madrid, due to concerns that Cristiano Ronaldo's World Cup injuries could still be affecting him at the start of next campaign. 

Sterling's development

Last season was Sterling's first campaign in which he played a major role for Liverpool. Brendan Rodgers trusted him to be mature enough and thought he was good enough to play at the top level.

Over the season he displayed numerous attributes which impressed England manager Roy Hodgson, leading to the 19-year-old to be called up to the World Cup.

Versatility

Throughout the season Sterling played in a variety of positions, traditionally out wide to utilise the youngster's pace and ability to beat a man, however later on in the season we saw Rodgers deploy the England international in the No.10 role, behind the striker. This position allowed him to demonstrate his range of passing, and long range shooting on some occasions.

Do Real need him?

Real may not need Sterling, as they already have a surplus of attacking talent. The likes of Angel di Maria, Gareth Bale, youngster Jese Rodriguez, and not to mention Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo all compete for places at the Santiago Bernabeu, which makes you wonder where Sterling would fit in if they were to sign him.

Could it be that Los Blancos are ready to get rid of one of their world class forwards?
