The Raheem Sterling transfer saga has taken another dramatic twist, as the 20-year-old's scheduled meeting with Liverpool has been cancelled by the club, according to BBC Sport.
The reports come after Sterling was set to hold crunch talks with the club's officials and demand a move away from Anfield, said to be due to his desire to join a side capable of challenging for trophies.
Now, though, it is anyone's guess as to what the future holds for Sterling, as his already-unstable situation has become all the more mysterious and unpredictable.
FUEL TO THE FLAMES
It's far from a secret that the winger is unhappy with life in Merseyside, having rejected a £100,000-per-week contract to stay at the club. However to cancel a meeting of such importance is likely to have pushed Sterling's past the point of trying to fix broken bridges, and thus fuelled his desire to abandon the Reds altogether.
It would seem also that Sterling will prove his critics wrong and reject any offer, regardless of how lucrative, that Liverpool send his way, putting to bed accusations that he is a 'money-grabber'.
ON THE PROWL
The England international's potential suiters will have all undoubtedly heard the news and will be paying even closer attention to what might unfold.
But as with every transfer saga involving a prospect of Sterling's calibre, the next piece of drama is unlikely to be far, so stay tuned for updates.
