If City dont want him bring him to United
Wouldnt happen in a million years but i'd welcome him with open arms and play him down the middle. People saying they wouldnt swap him for Pogba is ridiculous. City wouldnt even consider Pogba nowadays.

I'm surprised how few people here want him at United. He's a class player who always gives his all. I think he is on of those who needs rest every now and then (as, in my opinion does Bruno) but hopefully the new season will be "back to normal" so this shouldn't be too much trouble. If we don't get/go for Grealish, I think Sterling would be a great addition to the squad - if City allowed him to come

He's been crazy inconsistent for almost 2 seasons now not to mention he goes missing/misses a lot when it matters.
If he wasn't playing for City his stats would look much worse than they are.

He's infuriating to watch. Enough people on here have no patience with Rashford, Sterling would drive people over the edge.

I find him just mind numbingly frustrating personally.

He's good for a defence counter-attacking team who hit with space directly. If you are expecting to dominate play and need to break down your opponent he's often bad, it's why City don't think he's good enough and why he did well for England.

I think he's a good choice for Leicester or West ham.

I find Rashford better than him age for age.

So 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons where he was one of the best players in a possession dominating City side, did not happen?

Like when and how comes he has had better seasons than almost all Citys other attacking players at his best?

More often than not though he is creating chances, breaking the lines, even when things aren’t clicking for him, he creates havoc.

Like in the Euros, just kept going and driving the team forwards, that’s what I see for City, even though I agree he can be very frustrating.

If you check stats for last 2 seasons in EPL
2020/21
2019/20
He's got some serious form issues - he scores/assists then goes 2-3 games without contributing rinse and repeat. Not to mention he loves to stat pad against cannon fodder

last season was a poor season. his worst in years.

Ronaldo must've had similar to Sterling by contributing in bunches.

2018 Sterling contributed in 21 league games
2019 Sterling contributed in 17 league games
2020 Sterling contributed in 15 league games

2007 when winning POTY Cristiano contributed in 21 league games
2008 Cristiano contributed in 22 league games (Ballon D'or years).
2009 Cristiano contributed in 16 league games

Ronaldo took pens and he too stat padded vs cannon fodder.

Are you seriously comparing Ronaldo's contributions to Sterling's? Ronaldo literally carried us at times while City's attacking power is carrying Sterling

Poor Ronaldo only getting to play with Rooney, Tevez, Berbatov, Giggs, Nani and Scholes. We'd have been relegation fodder without him.

I'm only trying to demonstrate that wing forwards don;t score in nearly as many games as you think

How many goals did Sterling score like the one Ronaldo did vs Fulham - 06-07? You take Ronaldo out and we wouldn't win the title that season, he alone got us at least 9 points.
City without Sterling are still crazy good which says a lot about their team.
