Manchester City have been chasing Harry Kane’s signature for quite some time now. Tottenham Hotspur are standing in their way as the Lillywhites are desperate to keep their prized asset for at least another season. Having said that, City’s £100 million offer recently got shot down by Tottenham. The deal included cash in addition to the probability of including players.
One of those offered players was said to be Raheem Sterling.

The Englishman is said to be disappointed with the club’s handling of the situation, given that he was open to signing an extension with the Premier League champions despite having a fall-out with Pep Guardiola in April and falling down the pecking order in City ranks.
Real Madrid are said to be interested in Raheem Sterling though the Los Blancos are yet to make an official move for the former Liverpool man. HITC reports that despite interest from Spain, City are confident about keeping their star man.
Sterling has been the man in form for England in the Three Lions’ ongoing Euro 2020 campaign. With three goals and one assist to his name, Sterling could very well be a contender for becoming the player of the tournament.
With Sterling’s impressive displays coming out of the top drawer despite not having enough game time in the last few months, the 26-year-old has proved himself and his mindset. Barcelona are also said to be interested in signing the English winger but the Blaugrana’s current financial troubles make the probability of the former La Liga champions signing the Englishman far from reality.
Sterling is representing himself and that could play a role in the negotiations as well. His demands and valuation could go up if he continues playing the way he is currently playing. Having said that, HITC also understands that any decision about the 26-year-old’s future will be taken after the Euro 2020 and the player’s summer break.
Sterling still has two years to run in his current contract and technically, City could block any offer that arrives for the services of the Englishman.
