The England attacker is a favorite of City boss Pep Guardiola, but there was a suggestion in the summer that City may be willing to cash in on Sterling to facilitate other moves.
Such a sale did not materialise, but journalist Gerard Romero suggests that incoming Barcelona coach Xavi is a huge fan of Sterling.
He may see the winger as ideal for the left attacker position in his favorite 4-3-3 formation.
Arsenal are the Premier League side with a key interest in Sterling, per British sources, but both them or Barcelona would have to pay close to £81 million to secure Sterling, as that is his value according to transfermarkt.
