According to Fabrizio Romano, as shared by City Xtra, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola ‘wants to keep’ winger Raheem Sterling at the Etihad Stadium – prompting many Sky Blues supporters to buzz over this development.
Sterling, who finished the 2019/2020 season as City’s top goalscorer in all competitions (31), didn’t manage to replicate those impressive numbers over the Sky Blues’ domestic double-winning campaign this past year.
However, since joining City, he has really impressed overall – playing a key role for both the Centurions in 2017/2018 and for City’s domestic quadruple winners the season after.
Romano, sharing news on Sterling’s future at the Etihad, has been told that Guardiola does not want to sell him this summer – with the club currently speaking to his representatives over a possible new deal.
Even though there is no agreement yet, news of Guardiola’s stance on the Englishman has prompted excitement from many City supporters.
One fan even called it ‘perfect’, and it’s hard to argue given his overall contribution since signing for the Sky Blues.
