Jamie Carragher baffled at rumours of Sterling joining Tottenham Hotspur.
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher puzzled at rumours of using Sterling as a makeweight in order to sign Harry Kane in the summer.
Carragher doesn’t want Sterling to join a club that’s not participating in the Champions League.
Carragher wrote in The Telegraph: “I can’t believe I have read some reports suggesting he could be a makeweight in a deal to take Kane to City.
“With respect, do people think Sterling is at a point in his career where he would join Spurs? Are they serious? If he was available, top Champions League clubs would be queuing up for him.
“There appears to be an undercurrent of cynicism about how good Sterling actually is, the under-par performances pounced upon as evidence he is not quite at the level of the world’s best, and the high-class performances ignored because they inconveniently undermine the argument he is one of the two best English footballers of this generation.
“When it comes to being the most underrated England player of this era, Sterling is out on his own. Sterling’s contribution (at Euro 2020) so far has not vindicated Southgate for picking him. They have exposed the folly of anyone who questioned his selection in the first place.”
