The exodus of Manchester City players to Barcelona seems to be continuing. Raheem Sterling is reportedly ready to go to Catalunya in January 2022.
As is well known last summer, several Manchester City players decided to withdraw from the Etihad Stadium. There are various reasons why they pulled out of the EPL champion.
There are two City players who decided to withdraw to Barcelona. They are Sergio Aguero and Eric Gatcia who officially became El Blaugrana players.
Sport claims that Barcelona will have another City player in January. That player is Raheem Sterling.
Check out the Sterling transfer situation below.
According to the report, Sterling has long wanted to leave Manchester City.
The winger feels increasingly excluded from the Citizens squad. This is evident from the lack of playing hours given to him by Pep Guardiola.
That’s why Sterling began to seriously want to leave in January.
Ready to accommodate
The report claims that Barcelona are watching Sterling’s situation at City.
They have long been interested in signing Sterling. They think the winger can have a big impact on their attack line, which is left by Lionel Messi.
So Barcelona will reportedly try to lobby City to secure the winger’s services as a loan player in January.
Sacrifice a lot
Sterling must be prepared to sacrifice a lot if he wants to move to Barcelona.
The La Liga giants are experiencing financial difficulties so they can’t afford to pay his exorbitant salary.
