After failing to sign Raheem Sterling this summer, Barcelona maintain interest in the Manchester City player.

In need of strengthening the attacking division in the second half of the season, reports from the Catalan media have indicated that the La Liga side have plans to sign the City winger.

Two days ago, Sport stated that Ronald Koeman’s side wants to take the 23-year-old on a loan deal at the winter market.

Reports in the British press have explained that Pep Guardiola’s side wants to offer a new deal to the former Liverpool man. His current deal expires in 2023, but he is not in favor of signing an extension.

These allegations are passed on by Sport on Friday, which then says the English farmer is ‘attracted’ to the idea of ​​playing at the Camp Nou.

At Barca, they have known since the summer that Sterling’s ‘overall disposition’ is to leave City and ‘close his signing for FC Barcelona’.

Barcelona have Sterling as ‘one of the priority options’ for January and are ‘fully informed’ about their situation in the City. However, his signature would only be possible if it is on a loan agreement as his request price is ‘very high’.

The potential deal will also include acquisitions, and it must be agreed between the two sides whether Barca will pay in cash or include some of their players in the operation.

Although the relationship between the sides is ‘excellent’, Sport says the deal is ‘complicated’, even though ‘the road is still open’.

Sport warns of a possible transfer to Sterling in January depends on City finding a ‘guaranteed replacement’ for him in the same window.
