The stakes were raised in the stand off between Liverpool and Raheem Sterling earlier this week, when the winger informed the club he did not wish to travel on their pre-season tour.
Having returned to pre-season training on Monday, Sterling reportedly met with Brendan Rodgers at the end of the session, informing the manager of his unwillingness to travel to Bangkok on Sunday.
The club depart for the Thai capital on Sunday, yet the bwin odds compilers’ assessment suggest that the rebel forward will cede to his employers wishes.
He is just 1/5 to join his teammates on tour, with Liverpool ‘adamant’ that he will remain at Anfield for the two years remaining on his current deal if Manchester City don’t meet their £50m valuation.
Sterling is currently 3/1 not to travel to Thailand alongside the Merseysiders, with the Citizens expected to come back with a new bid for his services in a matter of days.
