Trevor Sinclair has warned Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola not to sign PSG attacker Neymar as replacement for Raheem Sterling.

Sinclair told TalkSPORT: “He’s [Neymar] too inconsistent for me. You get one good game out of every four.

“I compared him with Sterling and a lot of people got on my back, but if you’re a manager you’d want Sterling over Neymar! Three games out of four Raheem is top drawer. He might have the odd bad game but with Neymar you’re not getting that consistency.”

Speculation over the Brazilian’s future has been rife this summer after club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi refused to rule out offloading the 30-year-old. 

He continues to be linked with Manchester City despite Guardiola insisting the Premier League champions are not interested in signing the Brazilian.
