Raheem Sterling’s future at Manchester City is completely open. The winger makes clear demands for a stay. A change is also possible. There are many interested in a transfer.

Crucial negotiations: Raheem Sterling (27) is facing a talk showdown with Manchester City officials. This is reported by the British Times. The Englishman demands a secured starting line-up from coach Pep Guardiola. With Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Riyad Mahrez and, more recently, Erling Haaland, he has strong competition up front.

Change possible: Sterling’s contract runs until 2023. If there is no extension, a change is likely this summer. City’s striker star can well imagine a transfer abroad. “If there’s an opportunity to go somewhere else to get more playing time, I’d be open to it.”

Big prospects: Sterling is on the list of many top European clubs. Among others, Chelsea, Bayern and Barcelona are said to be interested in a transfer. Real Madrid should have the best chances. After the surprising cancellation of PSG superstar Kylian Mbappé, Los Blancos are looking for a new king transfer.
