Ex-Liverpool player David James has advised Bukayo Saka to join Manchester City because they are the biggest team in the league.
City are reportedly interested in signing Saka as a replacement for Raheem Sterling, who has joined Chelsea.
Due to other clubs’ interest in the 20-year-old, Arsenal has offered him a new contract with higher wages, but he has yet to respond.
Saka was one of Mikel Arteta’s standout performers in the Premier League last season, with 11 goals and seven assists, and has been named Arsenal’s Player of the Season for the last two seasons.
However, David James believes that if he wants to win major trophies, he should consider moving to Manchester City. James stated:
“Arsenal are currently the best team in England as we speak, purely from their league position, but more than likely Manchester City are going to challenge them for that position.”
“The question is, would Saka be given enough game time at Manchester City? It’s almost guaranteed rotation when you’re fit because that’s what Pep Guardiola does.”
“Anyone who goes to Manchester City knows they’re not going there to play every game. What’s best for Bukayo? Well, if you want to be part of a revolution in a sense, then you should stay at Arsenal as they’re building something and they’ve not won the league for 18 years.”
“You’re part of a revolution if you can get Arsenal to compete for the Premier League title, but if you want trophies instantly, then you’re almost guaranteed it if you go to Manchester City.”
“I believe he’d be a wonderful addition for Manchester City. I’ve got a lot of Arsenal friends, so I believe he should move to Manchester City.”
