Manchester City fans have provided a mixed reaction to Raheem Sterling’s comments amid rumours that Arsenal want to sign him.
It was a frustrating Premier League season for the Arsenal-linked player last season and that has seemingly carried itself into Euro 2020.
Eurosport have claimed that Arsenal have lodged enquires to not just try to sign Sterling this summer, but his teammate, Riyad Mahrez.
This isn’t the first time that Sterling’s name has cropped up with Arsenal because Mikel Arteta has been seemingly keen to bring the £49 million player to the Emirates for a number of months now.
Amid all these rumours, Sterling spoke about his game time, and lack of it, to Sky Sports:
“If you’re not playing, you’re not happy,” said Sterling. “That’s me, that’s been me since I was a kid, if I’m playing football I am really happy, if I’m not I’m not happy.”
Man City supporters have provided quite a strong reaction to Sterling comments, as some think that he needs to look at himself.
There’s no hiding that the Englishman’s form went down the drain last season and he was nowhere near the quality he is able to showcase.
And with Phil Foden pushing ahead of him during the key games for Man City last season, it does beg the question as to what will happen to him in the future?
It may have previously seemed pretty unlikely for Arsenal to sign the speedster, but with Man City rumoured to be offering him to Spurs in order to get Harry Kane then a few doors might have just opened.
Either way, this transfer saga involving Kane might have repercussions for others, including their North London rivals.
