Manchester City will consider selling Raheem Sterling for £80m this summer, if he decides against signing a new contract, according to reports in the UK.
The 26-year-old has been in excellent form for England at the European Championships but the winger has two years left on his current deal at the Etihad Stadium and the Citizens are concerned that he won’t sign an extension.
It is believed Sterling fell out with manager Pep Guardiola back in April, and the rift has yet to be mended despite Guardiola selecting him to start the Champions League final against Chelsea.
Reports have suggested that he could be used in a swap deal for Tottenham’s Harry Kane while Arsenal are said to have enquired about the player’s availability.
Sterling has himself, though, not made up his mind about his future. His difficult relationship with Guardiola is not believed to affect his chances of being selected for matches, with the Spaniard happy to keep the player, but he may end up leaving City if a good enough offer comes along.
