A number of Manchester City fans want Raheem Sterling to depart the club after he was once again linked with a move to Barcelona.
The Citizens have enjoyed a generally positive start to the season. As it stands, they are third in the Premier League table, just two points behind leaders Chelsea, who they beat 1-0 at Stamford Bridge last weekend (Sky Sports). On Sunday, they were involved in a thrilling 2-2 with Liverpool at Anfield, taking four points from visits to the two teams ahead of them in the table.
One player who has not been involved as much as he would like this term is Sterling. The England international has started just two league matches (Transfermarkt), with others such as Jack Grealish, Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez being used more regularly. As per Mundo Deportivo (via AS), Barcelona have the money to sign Sterling in January and it is now down to Pep Guardiola and the 26-year-old to decide whether to entertain any prospective offers from Camp Nou.
Should City sell Sterling?
The news was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from Man City supporters. These fans took to the social media platform to respond to the latest rumour, with many hoping that the club will cash in on the England winger, who according to WhoScored has been one of the champions’ least effective performers this season.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the Sterling news
“sell him !!”
“Please Pep sell him”
“Yes, and use the money to buy Haaland”
“If they’ve got a spare £80-90m down the back of the sofa we should be making this deal happen. Has definitely reached a ceiling at City and is 3rd choice on both sides of the pitch now.”
“I mean its kinda perfect cos Sterling gets another chance to prove himself until January and just gets sold if he cant get better”
“Would be a great move for all parties. Dream. Move for Sterling in a league he would thrive, we already have an abundance of players in his position. Additional funds for a world class ST, in January or the summer. Be sad to see him go if it materialised.”
