Report: Barcelona remain interested in €85m-rated Manchester City star


Barcelona remain keen on Raheem Sterling as Manchester City hope of tying down the England international to a new contract.

Sterling, who was open to the idea of leaving in January following interest from Barcelona, has turned the ship around this season

The England international has been in fantastic form of late for City, scoring 14 goals with five assists from 35 games this season, but his future at the Etihad Stadium is ‘uncertain’ due to his contract expiring in less than 18 months.

It is worth saying that despite Sterling being recognized as one of City’s key players currently, there remains a question mark around his future at the club.

As per a report by Graeme Bailey of 90min, Barcelona remain interested in Raheem Sterling and are paying close attention to his ongoing contract talks.

It has further been claimed that if Sterling was to reject City’s proposals, the club would have a big decision to make as the England international could sign a pre-contract with an overseas club in January.

It is expected that City will do their best to convince one of their most in-form and experienced players in Raheem Sterling to extend his stay at the club.

Pep Guardiola is said to be determined to keep Sterling on the books at the Etihad and has given the green light to a new deal for the former Liverpool man.

However, If Sterling doesn’t agree to a new deal in the coming months, he is likely to be sold, because City won’t want to risk losing him for nothing in 2023.

The €85m-rated England international won’t be without his suitors if made available for sale, so the Premier League leaders should make back every penny of the £57m spent back in 2015.
