Jamie Carragher has laughed off suggestions that Raheem Sterling could move to Tottenham as a part of the deal to take Harry Kane to Manchester City.
As things stand, City seem to be the front-runners for Kane’s signature, with Pep Guardiola having identified the Tottenham star as the man to bolster his striker options.
Some sources have claimed that City are prepared to offer Sterling as a makeweight in the deal to bring Kane to the Etihad stadium.
In fact, it was even suggested earlier this week that the Premier League champions had made an opening £100m offer for the England captain and had informed Spurs that they are willing to include Sterling in the deal.
Some pundits have questioned the idea, suggesting that the Manchester City star might not want to go to Spurs given the state that the North London club are in.
Carragher has now become the latest one to turn his nose up at the speculation, pointing out that Sterling would have a queue of top clubs lining up for his signature if he becomes available.
The former Liverpool defender wrote in his column for The Telegraph: “I can’t believe I have read some reports suggesting he could be a makeweight in a deal to take Kane to City.
“With respect, do people think Sterling is at a point in his career where he would join Spurs?
“Are they serious? If he was available, top Champions League clubs would be queuing up for him.”
