Pep Guardiola’s Raheem Sterling’s stance on Man City’s future revealed despite speculations of a possible Arsenal move.

Pep Guardiola’s Raheem Sterling’s stance on Man City’s future revealed despite speculations of a possible Arsenal move.

Pep Guardiola’s position on Raheem Sterling’s Manchester City fate has been told by transfer insider Fabrizio Romano, who has recently reflected on the situation surrounding the England international.

The former Liverpool winger has endured a tough season under Pep Guardiola this campaign, failing to defend his spot in the Manchester City starting XI, and playing very little role in the run to the Champions League final.

Such has been the puzzle surrounding his position in the Manchester City team that there has been growing talk of a potential move away from the club this summer, amid a slight lag and stand-off in contract talks.

However, transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has presented an overview of the circumstance, and one that certainly aligns itself with the core group of Manchester City fans who wish to see Sterling remain at the club into next season and beyond.

Speaking particularly to the Arsenal Lounge this week, Fabrizio Romano unveiled how casual discussions have been ongoing between Raheem Sterling and Manchester City over a new deal, however no settlement has yet been reached.

With that being said, it seems as though the strong viewpoint from Pep Guardiola is to preserve the services of Raheem Sterling beyond the summer transfer window and save the form of a player who has been contributory to the Catalan’s progress since his arrival in the summer of 2016.

“They need to negotiate about the contract,” Fabrizio Romano opened. “They are talking, not an official discussion with [Raheem] Sterling, but they are talking with people close to the player. They still have no agreement.”

“They need to decide about extending his contract, or maybe selling him this summer. At the moment, Pep Guardiola is still in the position of wanting to keep Raheem Sterling. But he’s out of contract in two years, so they need to decide this summer if they want to extend his contract or not.”

On the topic of rumors associating the player with potential interest from Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, Fabrizio Romano denied any progress in talks but did keep the door open for a move in the event that the landscape changes both on the side of the player and over at the Etihad Stadium.

He explained,

 “I’m told with Arsenal it is not something advanced, but it could become an opportunity during the market, as there are different moments. There are moments where you do your strategy where you have your priorities, but there is also the moment with opportunities.”

“Sterling could be impossible now because Pep wants to keep him and they want to discuss about a new contract, but maybe during the summer it could be an opportunity.”

For the moment, Manchester City’s transfer window surfaces to be very much centered on securing a new center-forward to take the place of Sergio Aguero, while there could also be activitys in the center of midfield and possibly at left-back.

In the days that have followed the Champions League final loss to Chelsea, there have been murmurs of high profile departures for the likes of Bernardo Silva, Aymeric Laporte, and Gabriel Jesus, however, nothing has materialized, nor has there been any real interest from Europe’s biggest clubs.
