Raheem Sterling is ready to perform a dramatic U-turn and stay at Liverpool but only if they sack Brendan Rodgers and replace him with Jurgen Klopp, reports The Sun.

The 20-year-old appeared to be on his way out of Anfield after rejecting a £100,000-a-week deal earlier this season.

His agent later confirmed that he had no intention of extending his current contract and would ask to leave this summer.

Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea are all believed to be keen in signing Sterling this summer and Liverpool appeared ready to cash in if the right offer came along.

However, Sterling is now ready to stay at Liverpool and potentially sign a new contract, but only if they manage to hire Klopp in place of Rodgers.

Klopp managed his last game for Borussia Dortmund in the German Cup final yesterday and will now set about finding a new job on the continent.

“I’ve always said if the owners want me to go, then I go.”

The future of Rodgers

Liverpool are yet to make a firm announcement on Rodgers's future, which was thrown into turmoil after the 6-1 defeat to Stoke City last weekend.

Rodgers told reporters after that game: “I’ve always said if the owners want me to go, then I go.”

Sterling's relationship with Rodgers has broken down and it is believed the England international will only consider staying if the Irishman leaves.

Klopp's credentials

Despite a poor final season as Dortmund manager, Klopp is still considered one of Europe's best managers and working under the German is massively appealing for Sterling.

The 47-year-old has a track record of winning domestic titles and getting the best out of a small budget.
