Raheem Sterling is said to be in the market again for a new team. The winger has been given playing time at Manchester City but is not considered in the team’s preferred starting XI.
At present, Chelsea seem to be Sterling’s favorites after seeing Romelu Lukaku on loan at Inter Milan. They will have some cash on hand and can make a possibly more attractive offer for Sterling than the one Barca are willing to make.
Sterling’s agents seem to be busy at the moment. They reportedly offer the England international to Barca as well as Real Madrid and Arsenal. Sterling is believed to be ‘not a priority for Barca’ as Raphinha remains a key target.
It probably also largely depends on what happens with Ousmane Dembele. If Chelsea end up moving for Dembele instead of Sterling, it could open the door. On the other hand, if Chelsea go for Sterling, we could see Dembele come back.
