Paul Merson, an Arsenal legend, has told Manchester City that he is shocked that they allowed Raheem Sterling to join Chelsea this summer.

Chelsea formally announced Sterling’s departure from Manchester City a few days ago.

Merson was reported by Sportskeeda as saying, “Raheem Sterling is another guy I’d like to mention, and I believe he could easily turn out to be the new addition who impresses the most this season.”

“I’m astounded that Manchester City allowed him to leave for a Premier League competitor – now they’ll have to rely on Jack Grealish to get into the box and duplicate his end product in front of goal!”

“People complain about Sterling’s technique and the number of chances he allegedly misses, yet he scores important goals for club and country and has done so for a number of years now.”
