Three reasons Southampton fans should not be upset if Bertrand joins Man City
He looks disinterested
While he has largely been a consistent performer for Southampton ever since moving to St Mary’s from Chelsea in 2014, Bertrand was far less influential in the closing months of the season and some will speculate that he was already thinking about a move away.
The Saints fans got used to the 27-year-old putting in committed performances from a defensive point of view and providing a real attacking threat but when that disappeared, he was just another left-back.
While the club obviously wouldn’t want to lose a player of the England international’s quality, it is difficult to keep a player that seemingly wants out.
