Sterling may have only scored six goals and provided three assists in 22 Chelsea appearances.
Journalist Simon Phillips has told GiveMeSport, Chelsea star Raheem Sterling is not ‘up for sale’ despite being ‘unhappy’ with his lack of form.
The former Man City star moved to Chelsea in the summer of 2022. The winger has been linked with a move away from the Blues as the January transfer deadline nears.
According to Football Insider, the West London club are willing to listen to offers for Sterling just a matter of months after his arrival at Stamford Bridge.
The report adds Chelsea’s January business, which has included forking out £88.5million for Mykhailo Mudryk, has thrown the England international’s future into doubt.
Contrary to Football Insider, Phillips understands that Sterling has not been put on the transfer market by Chelsea.
Phillips told GiveMeSport: “Personally, I haven’t had any information to suggest that Sterling is up for sale right now.
“I know that he has been unhappy, but that’s been with his own performances. He’s not been happy with how he’s been playing, so he’s trying to correct that.
“Obviously, he’s got his injury at the moment, but he wants to come back and correct that. He wants to get back to how he started his Chelsea career, which was actually very good.”
Sterling may have only scored six goals and provided three assists in 22 Chelsea appearances, according to Transfermarkt, but Potter should not even contemplate sanctioning his departure.
