Real Madrid wants to take revenge on City for the signing of Haaland: the crack that does not escape Florentino | Transfer market July 2022 | FOOTBALL-INTERNATIONAL

Manchester City announced last Tuesday to Erling Haaland as a brand new signing for the next five seasons. After an agreement with Borussia Dortmund, the current champion of the Premier League has been done with the services of a footballer who also wanted the Real Madrid. In Valdebebas they have lost one of the best scorers of the moment and now the president Florentino Pérez is looking for revenge. Just as the city dwellers took the Norwegian away, the Viking team’s staff wants to get the nail on the head by signing none other than one of Josep Guardiola’s pupils. Is about Raheem Sterling.

According to the Spanish portal Don Balón, the 27-year-old English attacker has once again appeared on Madrid’s transfer agenda. Given the very likely departure of Eden Hazard, in Chamartín they need a good winger to fill that gap and the former Liverpool meets the conditions.

As of today, reality dictates that Sterling has a contract with Manchester City until mid-2023. However, the explosive English attacker may not stay at Etihad Stadium to fulfill his contract and many may renew it before the arrival of Haaland.

If there is something that has become clear in the 2021-22 season, it is that Raheem is not an indisputable for Guardiola, so he is open to a change of scenery for the following season. He thus made it known a few months ago in an interview with ‘Business of Sport of US Summit’.

“If there was an opportunity to go somewhere else, I would be open to it right now. He should learn a language. I quite like the French and Spanish accent”said the English footballer with Jamaican roots, signed by City in the 2015-16 season.

This is not the first time that Sterling’s future has been linked to a Spanish club. The former Liverpool player was very close to being loaned to Barcelona in the winter transfer market, but there was no definitive agreement between the clubs involved in the operation.

In recent days, another club that has shown an interest in Sterling is none other than Arsenal. At the request of Mikel Arteta, the London team would make every financial effort to keep his goals and assists in the next summer market.

Sterling is valued, according to the Transfermarkt portal, at 90 million euros. The England international, in addition to being a winger, can also act as a playmaker. The ‘soap opera’ of the European summer market 2022 has only just begun.
