Manchester City and England international star Raheem Sterling could be on his way to Serie A after rumors have linked him with a summer switch to giants AC Milan.
As reported by the Mirror, Milan ” are in the process of being bought by a Bahrain investment fund for £850million with a wish list of summer transfer drawn up with Liverpool, Man City, Ajax, and Real Madrid among those ready to be pilfered.”

Should the takeover go ahead without a hitch in Lombardy, Raheem Sterling is set to be firmly in the crosshairs of the Italian giants, with the club said to be gifted a ~£300million transfer budget which will allow them to hopefully surpass bitter domestic rivals Inter, and Juventus.
Sterling has regularly been linked with a move away from City at multiple points this season, with Barcelona being one of a cadre of top clubs that have fielded interest in the former Liverpool winger as his future at the Etihad remains up in the air given the club’s spending habits which may include Erling Haaland in the coming summer, reducing his pathway to key minutes even further.
With Sterling out of contract at the end of next season, City may cash in on the England man given attacking options at the club that include Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, and Jack Grealish, as well as young duo Liam Delap and Kayky in the pipeline.
Apart from Sterling, Milan is also set to target Liverpool’s Divock Origi as well as a host of continental-based stars the likes of Sebastien Haller, Christopher Nkunku, and Real Madrid tandem Isco, and Marco Asensio.
With Milan currently fighting tooth and nail with Inter for the Scudetto for the second season running while currently sitting two points ahead of their bitter rivals, the massive investment that could look to push the club back into the elite tier of European clubs could be an ideal location for Sterling to push his career forward.
