Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling is “ready to push” for a transfer to Barcelona this summer, according to 90min.com‘s Graeme Bailey.
The journalist, who has a mixed track record when it comes to reliability, says that Sterling is “unlikely” to be keen on a switch to another Premier League team, such as Arsenal or Tottenham, and would much prefer a move to the Camp Nou:
Raheem Sterling ready to push for Barcelona transfer.
Contract talks stalled last year with Manchester City – new deal still possible, but a move to the Nou Camp is more than appealing.@90min_Football

For their part, City are still confident that Sterling will sign a contract extension. They are said to have put together a competitive financial package that they believe the forward will accept.
However, it appears that it isn’t just about the money. Sterling is not happy with his role under manager Pep Guardiola and, although he won’t demand first-team football in talks with the club, it appears he’s tempted by a move elsewhere.
Barca’s interest is thought to be still strong after making an initial approach in January, but other teams on the continent (including Bayern Munich, Juventus and Inter Milan) are also pursuing the 27-year-old.
