Liverpool's Raheem Sterling is being called "overpriced" at £50 million by many pundit however he ticks a lot of boxes for Manchester City should his signing be completed.
- Manchester City suffered from a clear lack of pace and directness in the 2014-15 season. Sterling can help solve that.
- For several years now, the Blues have consistently lacked width in midfield or the attack. Sterling could change that and as a result create more space for David Silva to operate shifting from the left side into the middle of the pitch.
- Sterling is English and Manchester City need to sign homegrown players.
- The club has overpaid for several players from the continent in their mid to late 20's in recent years. Sterling is still just 20 and has several above average Premier League seasons under his belt.
- By injecting more pace into the City side, the Blues will be able to potentially match Chelsea's lethal counter-attacking prowess.
