Lots of Manchester City fans have been reacting to the news the Citizens are prepared to let Raheem Sterling leave the club this summer.
The Citizens face a huge clash on Saturday night as they prepare to face Chelsea in the Champions League final in Porto. This will be the first time they have played in the biggest match in European club football in their history, so Pep Guardiola and his team will have done all they can to make sure his side is as well-prepared as possible.
Unfortunately, he cannot control what the press decides to report in the build-up to the clash. According to Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail, Sterling is atop of a list of players City are prepared to offload this summer, with the club willing to listen to offers for the 26-year-old, whose form was questioned by numerous supporters this season after his goal tally dropped by more than half from last term.
Should City sell Sterling?
The news was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from City supporters. These fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts, and they were fuming at the thought of Sterling possibly being offloaded, with the winger having scored 114 goals in his six years at the club.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the Sterling news
“right before an important game how weird”
“I will say this again, offloading Raz will be a huge mistake Man City will regret… We still need players like Sterling, yes he had bad season but we need him..he will bounce back to his form.”
“Amazing. Everybody’s leaving then. Right before the CL final. Thanks SAMI”
“Just someone trying to cause issues before a final. Wouldn’t be surprised if it is true though, give us 100 million.”
“What a way to treat one of our best ever players, smh, he has one bad season and the club gives up on him just like that. Shameful”
