Brendan Rodgers says he is unconcerned by speculation linking Raheem Sterling with a move to Real Madrid.

The 19-year-old has been outstanding for club and country for the best part of 12 months, with Rodgers previously describing him as the best young player in European football.

He has fired three goals already this season, and reports this week suggest European champions Real Madrid have now registered an interest – however Rodgers remains calm about his future.

“It shows that he’s playing exceptionally well,” the Northern Irishman said.

“I think you could probably link Raheem with every club in the world at the moment. He’s a fantastic young talent.

“I’ve nothing really to add to it. There’s obviously lots of speculation every day about players coming and going here at Liverpool. ”

“He’s a wonderful boy who’s developing very, very well here. I think him and his representatives and the people close to him know how comfortable he is here and I’m sure at some point in the future, whatever contract we’re looking to work with will be sorted, but he’s still got three years left and there’s no rush from my perspective.”
