EPL: He’s better than Grealish, Mahrez – Danny Murphy tells Chelsea player to sign
Former Liverpool midfielder, Danny Murphy, has urged Chelsea to sign Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling this summer.
Murphy believes Sterling is better than his Manchester City teammates, Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez.
According to him, it will be a good deal for Chelsea if they can sign Sterling.
Sterling has been heavily linked with a move to the Blues this summer.
“I define world-class as the best players in the world… he’s probably the next tier below. The best players in the world should be a small bracket of players. When you talk about world-class players, you are talking about Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, that type who are world-class players… you can’t throw world-class as a blanket,” Murphy told talkSPORT.
“I think if you look at City’s attacking talent… would you have Grealish ahead of Sterling? I wouldn’t.”
“I’m a big fan of Grealish, but I think Sterling’s better. I would have Sterling ahead of Mahrez although Mahrez is a terrific player, but I think you get more defensively out of Sterling… in a big game, I would have Sterling over him.”
“Does Sterling get in my best XI? He does for me, but he doesn’t for Pep, so it looks like they will let him go. If I was a Chelsea fan, I would be more than happy having Sterling.”
