Barcelona is waiting for the green light on Sterling

Barcelona are interested in signing Raheem Sterling from City, but will only pursue an agreement with the Englishman once the future of Ousmane Dembele is resolved, according to Spanish outlet Sport .

Dembele, who arrived at the Camp Nou for £ 121.5 million from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, is out of contract at the end of the season and has yet to sign a new deal.

The report claims that new terms have been offered to the 24-year-old winger, but Dembele has not yet responded.

Should the French international not sign a new deal with the Spanish side before January, foreign sides will be able to start pre-contract negotiations to welcome the player for a free transfer the following summer.

Barcelona’s football director Mateu Alemany has reportedly been in regular contact with City over a potential move to Sterling.

The report adds that Pep Guardiola will be happy to allow Sterling to leave if he so wishes, so once Dembele’s future is resolved, Barcelona can make their move to the English international.

Guardiola saves Koeman’s job

Guardiola is believed to have saved Ronald Koeman’s job at Camp Nou despite the Dutchman’s uninspiring start to the season.

Barcelona currently sit ninth in La Liga with just 12 points – five in line with league leaders Real Madrid.

The Catalan side have also battled in the Champions League this season, sitting at the bottom of Group E without a point on their name thanks to a couple of 3-0 strokes in the hands of Bayern Munich and Benfica.

Spanish journalist Joan Vehils from Sport has revealed that Guardiola spoke with Barcelona president Joan Laporta to advise on the situation at the club.

Vehils said: “Koeman is still in Barça after a conversation between the president and Pep Guardiola. The truth is that without Cruyff, as Laporta values ​​the external council most now, his friend is Guardiola.”

Despite the worrying issues that could come to mind in light of Guardiola’s reported ongoing involvement in Barcelona, ​​the City boss was able to hold the key to orchestrating a healthy transfer negotiation between the two sides.

As all parties are eager for Sterling to go to Camp Nou and Dembele wants to drop out, according to reports, Guardiola was able to welcome City’s next wildcard signature at the Etihad Stadium.
