Barcelona interested in pound sterling, city to release pound for IDR 855 billion

MANCHESTER City are reportedly selling Raheem Sterling for £ 45million and are set to sell the player who is Barcelona’s target, UK Metro media reported today.

Sterling joined City on a £ 50million deal with Liverpool in 2015 and he scored 116 goals in 307 appearances during his six seasons at the Etihad.

However, Sterling is slowly starting to be marginalized from Pep Guardiola’s squad as the Spaniard prefers Phil Foden and Jack Grealish.

Guardiola rarely degrades Sterling for tactical reasons. His team tend to be exploited on the counterattack, with City now adopting a more methodical game using the possession skills of Foden, Grealish and Kevin De Bruyne.

City originally wanted to tie Sterling to a new long-term contract, but those negotiations have now been called off as neither party is keen to continue the partnership.

Sterling himself wants to try Spanish football, with Barcelona being the strongest contender for the 26-year-old’s services.

Pep Guardiola earlier this week sought to tone down speculation over Sterling’s departure, but said Barcelona could sign Sterling “if they wanted”.

“Honestly, I don’t know. I don’t know anything. I’m not going to tell you,” Guardiola told reporters.

“If Barcelona are interested in one of our players, I’m sure they can have him. Barca continue to be an attractive club, more than attractive. The city, the club, the history and it all. it is for the coaches, for the players it is always tempting. “

“If Barcelona interests one of our players, he will kick-start the engine,” added Guardiola, who is considered to be Barcelona’s most successful coach.

“Barca can use their media to influence the players. That’s the thing with Barcelona, ​​they can do whatever they want, for better or for worse.”
