Flocking to Twitter, many Manchester City supporters have erupted over a contract update involving star Raheem Sterling.
The England international, who is still yet to put pen to paper on fresh terms at the Etihad Stadium, has been the subject of some criticism for his City performances over the last year.
The £300,000-per-week forward, after a stellar Euro 2020 tournament with England, still hasn’t managed to rediscover his prolific form from two seasons ago and news has now come to light on his contract situation.
Reliable reporter James Ducker of The Telegraph says both the player and Guardiola have struck an uneasy truce whilst agreeing to disagree on certain matters.
While sources at the Etihad complex say Sterling isn’t screaming injustice and has his head firmly down, the 26-year-old’s new deal talks have stalled and will remain on hold to be revisited after a few months.
The player will have a year left on his current deal next summer and sporting director Txiki Begiristain risks losing him for a minimal or non-existent fee.
Flocking to this update, there have been many opinions by a plethora of City supporters, find all of their best ones down below.
