Manchester City has made Raheem Sterling available for a summer transfer in a bid to achieve their aim of a squad overhaul.
The Premier League champions are looking to add new players to their club and have made moves for the likes of Harry Kane and Jack Grealish. City will have to cough up a total sum exceeding £200 million if the club is to sign both players.
The Etihad Giants are also interested in bringing in Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich. The Bayern striker is seen as a possible replacement for Sergio Aguero if they fail in their Pursuit of Kane. Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy's insistence that Kane is not for sale is another reason the club considers Lewandowski as the next best option to Kane.
Raheem Sterling, who was a surpriser in last season's UEFA Champions League final, fell out of favour with Guardiola last season and fell down the pecking order in City's attack. Sterling scored ten goals in the 2020/21 Premier League season, a significant drop from the previous season when he hit the back of the net 20 times for City.
Raheem Sterling, however, rediscovered his scoring form when he joined the English national team in the just concluded EURO 2020. Sterling hit the back of the net twice in the group stage, with his two goals being the only goals scored by England in the group stage.
The City forward also scored the first of England's two goals against Germany, a feat which meant he scored all of England's first three goals in the tournament. Sterling also forced Simon Kjaer's semi-final own goal, which brought the three lions level in the tie.
