Sterling and Sanchez: Arsenal hero claims Man City will be ‘getting better deal’

first_imgRay Parlour is not keen on the idea of Arsenal swapping Alexis Sanchez for Raheem Sterling.Manchester City are desperate to land Sanchez this summer and are reportedly ready to offer Sterling plus a substantial fee to the Gunners to land the Chilean before Thursday’s transfer deadline.Arsenal legend Parlour, though, insists it is not a deal that makes sense for his former club.Sterling has started the season in fine style, scoring crucial goals for Pep Guardiola’s side in their past two Premier League games and is rated as one of England’s brightest prospects.But Parlour told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “For me, Manchester City would definitely be getting the better deal.“Sterling has made a good start to the season, two goals in the opening couple of games, but I watched him at the weekend and his football brain sometimes… he was running with the ball, tried to take the guy on in the box and ending up running it out of play. The football brain wasn’t there.“He is a good player, a player that could come into the club and be a decent signing, but will he score as many goals as Sanchez? He is a totally different player to Sanchez.“He makes the wrong decisions at times in that final third.“They [Arsenal] would rather have the cash probably.”last_img read more
