The Citizens boss was shocked to learn the England international could push for a move, while the Spanish star is now stuck on the sidelines A revelation has been made that hints at a move abroad being made in the future.

Sterling admits such an opportunity would appeal with fierce competition for places at Etihad Stadium leaving him battling £100 million ($137m) man Jack Grealish for minutes under Guardiola.

Amid the long-running saga regarding a potential new contract for the 26-year-old forward, a revelation has been made that hints at a move abroad being made in the future.

WHAT HAS BEEN SAID?

Pep Guardiola says he did not know Raheem Sterling may be tempted to leave Manchester City. He said:

“RAHEEM IS OUR PLAYER; HOPEFULLY HE WILL BE AN INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT PLAYER FOR US”.

I cannot assure them, I cannot assure how many minutes each one plays. They know they are going to play minutes, all of them are involved. What I want from Raheem and everyone is they have to be satisfied to be here if that’s not the case he has to make the best decision for his family. I was a player; I understand completely, I wanted to play. All of them want to play every game.

TORRES UPDATE

The Spaniard picked up the injury on UEFA Nations League duty with his national team. Aleksandar Zinchenko and Ilkay Gundogan are back in full training after injury. I know the manager from Spain, he treats Ferran as best as possible, doesn’t want him to get injured. They try to take care, sometimes it happens.

“IT HAPPENED WITH KEVIN DE BRUYNE AND PHIL FODEN. WOULD BE BETTER NOT TO BUT IT HAPPENS. WE MOVE FORWARD, AND WHEN HE COMES BACK AND RECOVERS AFTER TWO OR THREE MONTHS, TRY TO BE READY.”
