Raheem Sterling is open about a move away from Manchester City for more game time.

The 26-year-old dropped down the pecking order at City last season before an excellent Euro 2020 campaign, where he scored three times for runners-up England.

Sterling has only managed five starts in all competitions this season and could be on the move in the January transfer window.

Barcelona will make completing a loan deal for Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling its priority in January, claims Sport.

Sterling faces strong competition for places at City and has spoken publicly about his desire for more time on the field.

The Catalan club has financial restraints inhibiting its transfer activity but views a loan deal for the England international as an attractive option given its ambition.
