Barca eyeing January move for City star

English Premier League

FC Barcelona are reportedly eyeing a loan move for a Manchester City star in the January transfer window.

Raheem Sterling has seemingly fallen down the pecking order under Pep Guardiola this season and has found himself on the bench in the Premier League.

With Jack Grealish enjoying a prominent role in Sterling's preferred left-sided role in recent weeks, the latter has been linked with a departure in recent weeks.

Spanish publication Sport have reported that the England international is open to making a move to the Catalan giants to get some regular minutes this season.

The report claims that Barcelona tried to secure a loan move for Sterling in the recent transfer window, but that ultimately fell through as he stayed with the club.

It remains to be seen if Sterling's situation will change at the Etihad, as Grealish, Riyad Mahrez and the returning Phil Foden are all said to be ahead of him in the pecking order this season.
