Manchester City fans are livid after it was revealed the Citizens are set to enter contract talks with winger Raheem Sterling.
Since signing for City from Liverpool in 2015, Sterling has been a fantastic servant for the Premier League champions. In 290 matches for the club, he has managed 114 goals and 86 assists (Transfermarkt), helping them win the title on three occasions. His performances have also seen him grow into one of England’s most important players.
However, this term has not been his best – the 10 Premier League strikes he has managed is the lowest in any of his last four seasons, and he has come in for criticism from the club’s supporters. Still, City remain eager to offer the £90m-valued 26-year-old (Transfermarkt) a new contract – news which has not gone down well with the fans.
Does Sterling deserve a new contract?
The news was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Sterling news below
“Hope he doesn’t sign”
“Please just sell him”
“I wish that we sell him!!”
“Bin the fraud Ferran is better”
“It’s time to sell him whilst he’s still quite young and is a big name”
