Manchester City: David Ornstein drops claim on Raheem Sterling’s future

Manchester City are on the verge of potentially securing their fourth Premier League title in five years if they manage to win their two remaining fixtures this season.

With 36 matches played, the Citizens have won 28, drawn five and lost three, scoring 94 goals and conceding only 22 along the way.

Looking beyond the end of the current campaign, it seems as though the summer could be an important period behind the scenes for the future of one prominent City figure in particular.

What’s the news?

According to a recent tweet from journalist David Ornstein, sharing a corresponding report from The Athletic, Raheem Sterling will discuss his future at the Etihad Stadium in June after England’s UEFA Nations League matches.

Ornstein added that a new deal for the winger is possible, but only if he will be central to City’s plans for the future. He signed off by saying that if the England winger does end up leaving the Etihad, he expects to join one of Europe’s most decorated clubs and not Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur.

Should City offer Sterling a new contract?

Yes

Pep could be sweating

City signed Sterling back in 2015 from fellow Premier League side Liverpool in a deal worth a reported £49m.

Since then, the attacker – whose current deal is set to expire in the summer of 2023 – has gone on to make 338 appearances for the Citizens across all competitions. In that time, he has scored 131 goals, provided 94 assists and won numerous domestic trophies along the way.

With 29 league games under his belt in the current campaign, the 27-year-old has found the net 13 times and delivered five assists in the process, leaving only Kevin De Bruyne with more goal contributions in City’s squad.

Taking all this into account, and with Guardiola sharing his admiration for the winger and what he has done at the club, it’s safe to say that the Englishman has been an important figure for the Cityzens during their period of domestic dominance.

In terms of what Ornstein had to say on Sterling’s future, this could have the City manager sweating over the possibility of seeing the 27-year-old leave the club.

The hierarchy at Man City should be doing everything they can to convince the former Liverpool star to pledge his future to the Manchester club and continue to help them being successful, adding more goals and assists to his tally.
