Manchester City have been one of the form teams in the Premier League this season, with a second consecutive Premier League title in their sights.
The Citizens managed to secure all three points against a helpless Burnley side at the Etihad on Saturday, which helped Pep Guardiola’s side stay top of the table. Although, it appears as if they’re having trouble in securing a player agreement, as according to The Mirror, so far Man City haven’t been able to broker an agreement with Raheem Sterling, with Real Madrid and Barcelona lurking.
Manchester City are refusing to blink over Raheem Sterling’s contract demands – increasing fears the England winger will leave next summer.
Sterling currently earns £175,000-a-week and City have offered to increase that to £200,000 with a package of lucrative success-related bonuses and yearly increases.
But, so far they have been unable to broker an agreement – and the clock is now ticking.
Importantly, City’s stance has not been altered by reports Sterling is wanted by Real Madrid and Barcelona, believing that the Spanish giants have other priorities.
Raheem Sterling has been one of the standout performers for Manchester City in the current campaign, so it comes as some surprise that City aren’t willing to meet the Englishman’s demands.
Indeed, it appears as if the defending Premier League champions are struggling to secure an agreement with Sterling due to his demands being too high. So, the 23-year-old could be on his way out of the Etihad in the future.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
