Raheem Sterling, who has started to be excluded from Manchester City’s main squad in the 2021/22 season, has made the player with an English passport give a signal that it is possible to leave the Etihad Stadium.
In fact, Sterling did not want to rule out the possibility for him to try out competitions outside the Premier League. Seeing this, of course, is good news for Xavi Hernandez’s Barcelona who are claimed to be interested in bringing him to Camp Nou.
Currently, the opportunity for the original Liverpool academy player to land in Spain is wide open. Because, Pep Guardiola’s Man City is also claimed to be willing to let the winger leave the club with one note.
Launching from Football Espana, the club just wanted to release Sterling by exchanging players with Barcelona and his figure is Frenkie de Jong who plays as a central midfielder.
Reportedly, Xavi did not include De Jong’s name in his selling list. However, he is interested in signing Sterling and has the opportunity to only have to spend around 17 million pounds if there is a player swap, so there is a reason to be interested in doing this.
