Manchester City: Fans erupt over Raheem Sterling update -Manchester City Transfer Rumours

Flocking to Twitter, lots of Manchester City supporters have erupted over an update on the future of Raheem Sterling as Barcelona reportedly plot an Eastlands raid.

The La Liga giants are apparently eyeing a few City swoops ahead of January, with Sterling having been on their agenda for quite some time in particular.

In the past 48 hours, however, some major news emerged on other Sky Blue players that the Catalans could target, with their chief executive Ferran Reverter and director of football Mateu Alemany also spotted at the club’s training ground (Jack Gaughan).

This includes the likes of Ferran Torres and Bernardo Silva, with the Spanish youngster even said to be keen on the idea of joining Xavi’s new-look Barca side in January (Sam Lee).

However, in some good news for Citizens, it appears their club are keeping tight hold of Sterling at least. According to reliable reporter Mike McGrath of The Telegraph, City and sporting director Txiki Begiristain will step up their talks to tie down the England international with a new long-term contract.

Making their stance crystal-clear, it is also believed that Pep Guardiola’s side are ready to reject any offers for the 26-year-old amid interest from the likes of Barcelona.

Man City fans buzzing…

As Barca look to Manchester in a bid to bolster their squad ahead of January, it’s little wonder that so many Sky Blues supporters are delighted with this “lovely news” on Sterling.

Despite damp patches of form over 2021 in particular, the England star has been on a mini-resurgence as of late, scoring in the 3-0 home win over Everton and grabbing City’s equaliser in their midweek Champions League victory against Paris-Saint Germain.

Having finished the 2019/20 season as Guardiola’s top scorer in all competitions with 30 goals, supporters know exactly what he’s capable of when at the very top level.

Overjoyed by City’s stance on selling him to Barca, here’s how these City fans reacted on Twitter:
