Manchester City have were always willing to sell Raheem Sterling if the right offer came in this summer, with him attracting interest from clubs all over the country as well as abroad.
Manchester City want to sell him to a European club, ideally not in the Premier League.
However, the player and his representatives think differently, and they want to stay in England, pushing for a move to another Premier League club.
More talks on this matter will take place after he returns from holiday.
In recent weeks, Chelsea have become the clear front-runners, yet their first bid which had a total package of £25 million was rejected.
This offer is far from City’s valuation for the Englishman, as they are demanding a full package of £50 million, which could tempt clubs in making him their new signing.
His current deal with City expires in 2023, and if the Premier League champions want to get anything for him, they have to offload him this summer.
It’s still an open race, and the next few weeks are crucial for this transfer.
Sterling featured in 47 games for City this season, scoring 17 goals and providing nine assists in the process.
