Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling offered to Real Madrid
The Manchester City and England international has previously hinted at a move to Real Madrid.
Raheem Sterling has been offered to Real Madrid and some of Europe’s top clubs.
The Manchester City forward believes his time under Pep Guardiola is over and he is looking for his next move. He has a contract at City until 2023 and the Premier League champions are willing to sell him.
Transfermarkt currently values him at €85 million. The winger, who can play on either wing, arrived at the Etihad Stadium in 2015 for €65 million. Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Chelsea have also been offered the player.
Sterling’s intention to leave City is nothing new. “If there was an opportunity to go somewhere else, I would be open to it. I should learn a language. I quite like the French and Spanish accents,” he previously said at the Business of Sport US Summit.
Real Madrid a ‘fantastic club’
In an interview with AS in February 2020, he was also openly keen on Real Madrid: “Now I’m at City and I’m very happy, but Madrid is a fantastic club. When you see the white shirt you know exactly what the club represents, it’s huge. Although I have to say that I have a big contract with City and I have to respect that. But Madrid is a fantastic club, in a country with incredible weather. I’m a player who is always open to challenges.”
As things stand, Sterling does not fit into Real Madrid’s plans. He is a pure winger, and although he can play on either flank it is a position that Madrid have well covered. On the left, Carlo Ancelotti has options in Vinicius and Eden Hazard, and on the right, he has Rodrygo and Marco Asensio.
If Asensio leaves Madrid, Bayern’s Serge Gnabry, who is also being offered to Real Madrid, could be the man to come in. Madrid are also focusing their efforts on Monaco midfielder Aurélien Tchouaméni.
