London - Raheem Sterling has returned to training after a two-day hiatus as speculation increases about the winger's future.
The England winger is believed to have called in sick and allegedly told the club earlier this week that he didn't want to go on their pre-season tour of Asia and Australia.
The 20-year-old is wanted by Premier League rivals Manchester City who have had two bids for Sterling turned down.
The Etihad outfit have bid £30 million and £40 million for Sterling, but Liverpool value the forward at closer to £50 million.
Manager Brendan Rodgers's relationship with Sterling appears to have strained since the player turned down a lucrative new contract worth £100 000-per-week in January this year.
