The England international lost his place when Pep Guardiola first played Phil Foden a few weeks ago and only played an 8-minute match UCL 2nd leg against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.
With Man City reportedly looking to take on Erling Haaland and Jack Grealish, the club are said to be open to loading Sterling should the opportunity arise.
According to Football Insider, Real Madrid are looking at what is happening around Sterling’s future, with City hitting £75million in the strikers.
The report adds that City will be looking to use the money to help track down Aston Villa captain Grealish, with talks over Sterling’s contract at the Etihad – which is due to expire in 2023 – is currently on hold.
Raheem Sterling has managed to score 13 goals and 11 assists in all competitions this season but failed to make the first 5 games of the last UEFA Champions League game.
