Raheem Sterling news

Man City want to keep Sterling until next summer

Manchester City are reluctant to lose Raheem Sterling midway through the current season.

Barcelona are interested in a January loan deal with an option to buy. Arsenal have also been linked with a winter approach for his services.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has a good relationship with Sterling from his time as City's assistant manager. The Spaniard is keen on a reunion.

Sterling will enter the final 18 months of his contract in January, but it is reported that the Cityzens may keep him for the campaign.

Sterling has been a regular on the bench for the Cityzens' but he started the 2-0 win over Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday.
