As a January swoop approaches, Raheem Sterling’makes Barcelona transfer demand’ to Man City.
In January, Barcelona could sign Raheem Sterling from Manchester City.
According to shocking new allegations, Raheem Sterling has demanded that Manchester City sanction a loan move to Barcelona in January. After falling down the pecking order at the Etihad Stadium, the attacker has struggled for game time this season.
Sterling was a standout performance for England at Euro 2020 this summer, starting every game as the Three Lions advanced to the final.
However, the 26-year-old is no longer a significant player for City, having been named in Pep Guardiola’s starting lineup only three times this season in the Premier League.
He’s had to make do with a bench spot in three of City’s four Champions League games this season, with Phil Foden and Jack Grealish now considered better choices by the Citizens manager.
Sterling has told his manager that he wants to join Barcelona after becoming disillusioned with his lack of starts, according to 90min.
Barcelona is in dire financial straits, and a loan deal for Sterling would provide the Catalans with a great player without having to pay a hefty transfer fee.
Guardiola is said to have assured his executives that he will not be pushed to play anyone and is happy to let Sterling move to Spain.
When asked about the problem during his news conference ahead of City’s match against Everton, the 50-year-old was adamant that he would not address it.
“Don’t ask me about moves from now till the end of the window because I’m not going to answer,” Guardiola growled.
“It’s not my business, nor is it ours, nor is it Raheem’s.” Everton, PSG, West Ham, and the others are our business.
“I won’t answer any queries regarding what will happen in the future since I have no idea.” And I’m not worried in the least.” Sterling does not appear to have been missed by City this season, as they had 22 goals in their opening 11 Premier League games.
However, by the time they host Everton at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, they may be six points off the top of the standings.
Leaders On Saturday, Chelsea travels to Leicester for an early kick-off, where they have a chance to win their ninth game of the season at the King Power Stadium.
