Raheem Sterling has had a mixed season. Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola hasn’t trusted Raheem Sterling quite a bit in recent times but it was certainly a shocker to see the former Liverpool winger starting in the UEFA Champions League final, a move that might have blown up in Pep’s face.
Sterling, with 10 goals and 7 assists, is one of City’s top-scorers but the Englishman has failed to make it count when it mattered the most and it is a part of the reason why City may be prepared to let the 26-year-old leave this summer.

Football London understands that the Gunners are set for a busy market this summer and are eyeing Sterling to boost their chances of playing in Europe after having missed out on a qualification spot this season.
Needless to say, Sterling will assume a very important role under Mikel Arteta and could be set for a new challenge.
Real Madrid are also said to be rumored to keeping an eye on the Englishman as the Los Blancos are due for a squad overhaul. Eden Hazard has failed at Real Madrid and many sources have reported that the former La Liga champions will be open to listening to offers for the former Chelsea forward, thus opening the doors for Raheem Sterling.
Sterling has got a long way to go and while his chance creation is quite good, it is his finishing that needs a bit of a touchup.
Sterling was one of the best players on the pitch for City in the UCL final but his efforts were not enough to secure the coveted trophy.
Sterling’s valuation by City is still not known but it can be expected that the Premier League champions will ask for a fee in the range of £60-80 million for the English winger.
City have been linked with Harry Kane this summer with the Sky Blues said to be ‘very interested’ in the English striker. The Tottenham man is expected to cost around £150 million and the Cityzens will need to raise funds if they are to break the English transfer record for the 27-year-old.
