Man City: Stewart says Mahrez and Sterling under threat amid Grealish signing

Former Manchester City man Paul Stewart reckons both Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling’s places will be under threat following the arrival of Jack Grealish.

Grealish became City’s first major signing of the window when he broke the British record for the most expensive player last Thursday.

Should Man City sell Bernardo Silva?

Yes

His £100m move from Aston Villa means Guardiola now has nine attacking players at his disposal, which could become 10 if Harry Kane follows his England colleague through the door at the Etihad Stadium.

But his arrival means someone’s place in the side could become under threat, with Grealish’s price-tag surely meaning he’ll be a regular starter under Guardiola.

Guardiola has already confirmed that some of his squad want to leave, one of which being Bernardo Silva, but when asked who he expects to miss out on being a starter next season, Stewart gave a perhaps surprise answer given his form.

He exclusively told Football FanCast:

“He did himself proud at the EUROs, Sterling. But I can see him or Mahrez being the ones that are at most risk of not playing because Grealish can drift in from either side and as you said, he will play.”
