Reports are out claiming that Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Manchester City cannot afford to lose James Milner.
Milner, 29, is said to be wanted by Arsenal and Liverpool in the summer with City ready to allow him to leave.
But Carragher said: “I don’t think City can afford to lose someone of Milner’s quality.
“He can play a number of positions. He’s English which, in the current climate, means players like him are a requirement.
“He has an energy and athleticism which the City squad lacks.
“He’s versatile and has running power, which is something you would have to level at City – they lack that pace, certainly in midfield areas. It would be a big loss.”
