Barcelona have €16 million for a January transfer window signing
Barcelona will only have €16 million available to strengthen their squad in January. Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling is a target for the LaLiga club.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have €16 million available to spend in the coming January transfer window. England forward Raheem Sterling is on the club's winter wishlist. Although the wage bill at Camp Nou has fallen from €382 million to €97 million, they have opened the door to a signing in early 2022.
Dani Olmo interest
Catalan outlet Mundo Deportivo report that Barça's priority is a forward. Sterling and RB Leipzig player Dani Olmo are reportedly top of the list. As of today, the Man City player seems more likely to move to Catalonia. Dani Olmo, who impressed for Spain at Euro 2020, would come at a higher price. Sterling is no longer a key man for Pep Guardiola and was already on the verge of leaving over the summer.
Barcelona to make another bid for Sterling
Last summer, sporting director Mateu Alemany tried to sign Sterling, but Barcelona had to settle for Sevilla forward Luuk de Jong. Barça will make another attempt in January and are confident that City will open talks regarding the player's departure as long as a good offer is submitted.
