Manchester United Quietly Aim for Raheem Sterling

Manchester City has been banned from European competition for two years (2020/21 and 2021/22) and fined €30 million. Manchester United, the rival in the same city took this opportunity to sign Raheem Sterling.

Raheem Sterling is included in the Manchester United list for the upcoming transfer window. Not just in the list, but the Jamaican born player is reportedly becoming one of the top priorities.

Manchester United has been actively looking for a quality winger to build a team for the long run. With the age of 25 years, Sterling could become one of the important players in the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.

The addition of Sterling and current team members like Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Odion Ighalo, and Mason Greenwood will make Manchester United incredibly strong in the next season. Moreover, he is also a source of City goals. For the current season, he has scored 20 goals in 37 matches.

Manchester United will only make concrete steps if Manchester City were banned from appearing in the Champions League for 2 seasons. The appeal submitted by Manchester City to the Court of Arbitration for Sport is planned to begin on June 8.

If the appeal fails, numbers of City top players are expected to leave the club, and Sterling is said to be one of them. Sterling current price reached 128-135 million Euros. But there is a possibility that the price will plummet if Manchester City lose the appeal.

If Sterling is successfully brought in, Jesse Lingard is expected to leave Old Trafford, as the 27 year old winger performance has declined recently. Lingard was reportedly connected with two of his colleagues who play for italian league and rumored he was interested in joining them.

Not only Manchester United is interested in him, but the other Spanish giant club like Read Madrid is also interested in him
