Man City transfer gossip: Raheem Sterling to make contract extension U-turn as Pep Guardiola eyes Brazil left-back Abner.

Manchester City are apparently ready to re-enter negotiations with Raheem Sterling over a new deal, according to reports.

Manchester City are expected to keep Raheem Sterling, according to sources, and are prepared to re-enter contract negotiations with the England international.

Sterling had been linked with a move to Barcelona during the current transfer window, but the Catalan club decided to sign his City teammate Ferran Torres instead.

It comes amid claims that Manchester City are interested in signing Athletico Paranaense full-back Abner, with Pep Guardiola apparently sending a scouting team to watch the 21-year-old.

Sterling contract situation

According to reports, Raheem Sterling has been offered the chance to prolong his stay at Man City after initially seeming like he might depart at the start of the summer season.

According to ESPN, talks about extending the winger’s contract, which runs out at the end of next season, were “paused while the 27-year-old ensured he was part of Pep Guardiola’s long-term plans.”

During the current transfer window, he has been linked with a move to Barcelona, while Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also thought to have long-term interest in the player.

However, he now appears to be set to stay at the Etihad, with a new deal on the cards.

The report adds that Sterling’s “spell out of the team made him consider a loan move away from City in January, but there is growing expectation he will now stay at the Etihad”.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, City is “on his tail” and “wishes to buy him this summer.”

The player’s contract with Athletico Paranaense, which expires in 2024, supposedly features a £21 million release clause.

Guardiola is said to have dispatched a team of scouts to Brazil to assess the young full-back, and he appears to be impressed with what he’s heard.
