Raheem Sterling could be on his way out of Etihad this summer.
The 27-year-old England international has just one year left on his contract and has been linked with a move to Chelsea.
He is currently one of the crucial players under Guardiola’s regime and City can’t afford to lose him this summer.
Paul Merson claims if City were to sell him, they will lose a player who scores a crazy amount of goals for the club.
Merson to Sky Sports: “I think he might take time, he plays at Man City to the absolute way that Pep Guardiola wants you to play. He knows when that ball is coming into the box, he’s coming to that far post, you look at Grealish, he hasn’t got that at the moment.
“When the ball is whipped in and Grealish is still on the touchline – Sterling does it to an art. In my opinion, he will be massively missed. It might take time at Chelsea but he will be a great signing.
“I’d worry about Man City selling Sterling, you’re selling a lot of goals, people go to me ‘he’s always at the far post tapping them in’ he’s not pushing anybody out the way to tap them goals in. There’s an art to what he does and he’d be a massive miss for Man City and if Chelsea got him.”
