Manchester City star Raheem Sterling says he has no intention of joining Arsenal.
The England international was linked with a move to the Emirates in a proposed swap deal that would have seen Alexis Sanchez move to the Etihad in the summer but City turned down the proposal.
Even as recent as last month, Sterling was rumored to be a January transfer target of Arsenal but Guardiola was quick to shut down those rumors.
Sterling himself has now put to bed any hopes of Arsenal signing him. The England international insists he is happy at the Etihad and doesn’t intend to move to London.
“I’m happy at Man City. But nobody knows what the future brings so one day, definitely, it would be nice to play abroad,” Sterling said, as quoted by the Express.
“It would be a great experience. Spain’s attractive. Anywhere the weather is nice really!”
“I can’t be in London. I can’t be near my friends.”
“They got to stay down there.”
Sterling hails from London and started his career at Queen Parks Rangers before moving to Liverpool. When he was first linked with Arsenal, it was claimed that he is keen on a return to the capital city but he now claims otherwise.
Arsenal apparently wanted him as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez in the summer. Judging by the form he’s been this season, he would have been a perfect signing. His age and his style of play would make him an asset for any team.
