Barcelona could make a move to try and sign Raheem Sterling from Manchester City during the January transfer window as he continues to play a reduced role under Pep Guardiola.
Sterling was a star for England in their run to Euro 2020 finals, but he has only played two Premier League matches.
Since his 2015 move from Liverpool, Sterling has been a part of 298 matches for the club. He has won five domestic cups and three Premier League titles.
After an incredible summer, the 26-year old is not likely to settle for a bench job.
Spanish outlet Sport report that Barcelona could reignite their interest in Sterling after a deal failed to materialise during the summer transfer window.
They claim that Sterling has agreed to let City rest easy by making a bid for them in the early 2022.
The most talked about Barcelona these months has been the staggering debt. Atletico Madrid’s loan with a purchase obligation for Antoine Griezmann is freeing up funds.

Guardiola said of the forward before Sterling started in the draw against Southampton: “Do you know how many incredible successes we had in the last seasons yeah? Impossible without Raheem. He’s such an important player.
“But I am here to tell them. He reached an incredible high standard and I have to tell him this is the standard we need, for you, for all of us.
“And I’m pretty sure he will get it. If he’s able to do it, he will do it. And I’m so optimistic that he will do a great season.”
