Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims the club ‘seem unlikely’ to sanction a move for Raheem Sterling in January, despite his contract stand-off.

The England international has struggled to hold a key role in Pep Guardiola’s plans so far this season, and has only started six of his 15 appearances in all competitions.

Phil Foden’s development and the £100million arrival of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa has only further fuelled the belief that the 26-year-old will leave.

Sterling is reportedly frustrated with his lack of playing opportunities at the Etihad Stadium this season and is keen to ply his trade elsewhere, with Barcelona poised to make the deal happen.

With Sterling set to have just one year remaining on his contract come the summer, speculation around Sterling’s future has already begun to swirl with a handful of reports even indicating that the winger is open to the idea of moving to the Camp Nou.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reported this week that the Blues will be willing to let the former Liverpool attacker leave but only if they sign a replacement first.

This comes as City are aware of his strengths and allowing him to depart without a replacement would see them ‘lose quality’ with that they want to keep the standards at the club high.

However, according to The Sun, Barcelona are determine to sign Sterling and have plan a January ‘fire sale’ to fund a move for the winger, with Xavi a huge fan and would love to sign him in 2022.

But Manchester City ‘seem unlikely’ as per the report to sanction a move for Sterling in January, with Pep Guardiola’s side still hoping the 26-year-old will commit to a new contract.

The report was shared on Twitter by City Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters, who took to the social media platform to share their thoughts and opinions.
