Richards urges Man City to keep hold of Gabriel Jesus and Sterling

Manchester City hero Micah Richards believes the club should keep both Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling.

Both players are out of contract in 2023 and continue to be linked with other clubs.

Arsenal and Juventus are looking at Jesus, while AC Milan have scouted Sterling.

"Like Gabriel Jesus, Sterling is out of contract in 2023 and, until either of them sign an extension, they are going to be linked with other clubs," Richards told BBC Sport. "But for me it's simple - City have to try to keep them both if they can.

"Both of them are versatile and hard-working, and can play on both wings or down the middle. They also don't just know how to play in Pep Guardiola's system, they excel at it.

"Sterling has these moments where his form is up and down but he always comes back strongly. He was basically written off before last summer's European Championship but ended up being one of the stars of the tournament."
