EPL: He’s a fantastic footballer – John Barnes tells Chelsea player to sign

Liverpool legend, John Barnes has urged Chelsea to sign forward, Raheem Sterling from Manchester City this summer.

Barnes believes it would be a great move if Sterling joins Chelsea, adding that the England international is a fantastic player.

Sterling has been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer as Romelu Lukaku is close to leaving the Blues on loan.

“It all depends on Raheem. If he feels, with the new signings, he’s not going to be a regular player, of course, he is a fantastic world-class player, so he deserves to be (playing on a regular basis),” Barnes said (via HITC).

“Maybe, if he feels at Chelsea, he would play more regularly, then it would be a great move for him, and it would be a great move for Chelsea as well if you think about the price they have to pay, the age of Raheem and the quality. It will be a fantastic signing for them, but Raheem will make that decision.”

Sterling has just one year left on his current contract with Man City.
