first_imgRaheem Sterling to Real Madrid would be a bad move for the winger AND the Spanish giants, talkSPORT have been told.Real are reportedly lining up a £45million swoop for the Liverpool starlet, who is refusing to sign a new contract at Anfield.But, according to former Reds star Ray Houghton, the 20-year-old must resist the temptation to join the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale at the Bernabeu.Houghton feels that Sterling is not ready to take such a big step up, and claims the England international would be better served staying at Liverpool for the foreseeable future.He told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “Raheem Sterling is someone a lot of clubs will be looking at because potentially he could be a fantastic player. But it is only potential at the moment.“It is a risk [for Real Madrid] signing someone like that. You don’t know how they adapt to the country, you don’t know what they are going to be like in training, you don’t know whether you are going to be good enough for the league you are playing in.“I still think Raheem would be better served staying at Liverpool for another couple of years. He is still a young man, he is still learning his trade, and he has still got a long way to go to be the finished article.“He would get more game time at Liverpool than some of the clubs looking at him.”last_img
