please don't go

Louis van Gaal and Brendan Rodgers both believe that contract ditherers David de Gea and Raheem Sterling will eventually see the light.

But it looks like the Dutchman has a better chance of holding onto to his man despite widespread speculation that de Gea is on his way to Real Madrid.

When asked if Víctor Valdés could replace De Gea, Van Gaal said: "First we have to see if De Gea is leaving. Then we shall talk about the other things. I believe still that David de Gea will stay."

Rodgers and Liverpool have called Sterling and agent Andy Ward's bluff and explained that they expect their contract rebel to knuckle down.

"Raheem has two years left on his deal and I expect him to see that two years through," said the Anfield boss,

Rodgers said Sterling was available to play against Stoke in Livrpool's final Premier League fixture of the season and does not foresee any issues."We want to resolve the situation but it doesn't change my approach to him. There is no problem there," he added.
