Not only in “LaLiga” do Real Madrid and FC Barcelona deliver a gripping duel, it’s also exciting outside of the game. Because: Both clubs want Raheem Sterling from Manchester City.

Head-to-head race: According to the Daily Mail, both Real Madrid and FC Barcelona want to sign Raheem Sterling from Manchester City this summer. The England international is currently valued at €85m and his contract expires next summer. The 27-year-old is one of the top performers in the “Sky Blues” – in all competitions he scored 17 goals and nine assists in 47 games last season.

Short, compact, clear

Barcelona want him: Barcelona wanted to sign Sterling back in January – however, the transfer fell through and the Catalans instead strengthened with Ferran Torres, also from Man City. However, now that Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembélé’s future remains uncertain, the Spanish club is still interested.

Real but also: After the mega deal with Kylian Mbappé failed, the Madrilenians are still looking for a new offensive star. Also at the top of the list for them: Man City’s Raheem Sterling.
