Regardless matter the outcome of Saturday’s Champions League final in Porto, the Premier League champions want to improve their team throughout the summer season.
Sterling was dropped from Pep Guardiola’s starting lineup after last season, and Sportsmail has learned that City will be open to bids for the 26-year-old.
Manchester City is expected to trade Rahim Sterling this summer following a disappointing season.
In recent weeks, the winger has lost his spot in Pep Guardiola’s starting lineup. He isn’t the only individual who may accompany Riyad Mahrez to those who may have been sacrificed in the future months.
Mahrez has been on fire in recent weeks, most notably in the Champions League semi-final against Paris Saint-Germain, but if the agreement is accurate, City would consider selling him. Gabriel Jesus, the striker, and Iameric Laporte, the central defender, are also weak members of the squad.
Arsenal Shows Interest In Sterling and Mahrez
Arsenal is rumored to be interested in both Sterling and Mahrez. Mikel Arteta, the Gunners’ manager, worked with the pair at City under Guardiola. However, considering the cost demands and absence of European football, Arsenal’s ability to sign any player should be questioned.
Real Madrid is one among the teams with a lengthy history of interest in the England international.
Riyad Mahrez is another name that might end up on the scrap heap as the city considers its options.
Sterling has long been a target for Barcelona and Real Madrid. Jack Grealish, who is valued at £ 100 million, is their No. 1 midfield target, according to Sportsmail, with City in need of funds to complete their deals.
England captain Harry Kane is also after him.
Although it is expected that City would have to reduce their squad to pursue Kane and Grealish. Sterling’s price will still be unexpected.
