Former Crystal Palace president Simon Jordan has stated his belief that Chelsea target Raheem Sterling is not as good as people make him out to be. The England international could reportedly depart Manchester City this summer and the Blues are

among the sides linked with him. However, Jordan revealed his opinion that the 27-year-old is not a world-class player and his potential departure would not affect Pep Guardiola's plans. The 54-year-old was speaking on talkSPORT when he made the revelation:

“I don’t think he’s a world class player. I think he’s a very good player, otherwise he wouldn’t play for his country.

“I think he’s a good player. I don’t think he’s anywhere near as good as people somehow advance him to be.”

“He’s a good player but I don’t think him leaving would derail MCFC.”

Raheem Sterling joined Manchester City from Liverpool in 2015 in a deal that made him the most expensive English player at the time. The England international has been integral to Pep Guardiola's side's achievements over the last six years.

However, he has been accused of profligacy and was not a guaranteed starter for most of last season. Erling Haaland's arrival at the Etihad and City's new agreement with Julian Alvarez has put Sterling's future with the Premier League champions in doubt.

Sterling has weighed in with 131 goals and 95 assists in 339 matches in all competitions, winning nine major trophies, including four Premier League titles.
