Barcelona readying January bid for Man City attacker Sterling after summer talks

Barcelona are readying a January bid for Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling.

Sport says Sterling's importance at City has dropped and his desire to leave has increased as a result.

This summer, Barcelona's director of football Mateu Alemany travelled to England to negotiate the signing of the former Liverpool forward.

Due to the club's financial situation, the idea was to include Sterling in a swap deal (with Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele and Sergi Roberto initially on the table) or to discuss a loan.

However, nothing could be agreed in the end. But rather than move on, the interest in Sterling remains active and Barça want to re-open negotiations ahead of January.

Alemany still has Sterling in mind. It won't be easy, not least because Barça didn't have the money in the summer to do the deal.

Aged 26 and in his seventh season at City, Sterling is ready to look at his options and a move to Barcelona would be welcomed.
