Manchester City transfer news: Real Madrid want Raheem Sterling, Barcelona’s swap deal for Antoine Griezmann, defender expected to be loaned out

Manchester City transfer news

In this article, we’ll cover all of today’s Manchester City transfer news.

Raheem Sterling to Real Madrid?

Wednesday has once again seen Real Madrid tipped to move for Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling.

The wide-man fuelled speculation over a potential Bernabeu switch earlier this year, when he refused to rule out joining Real Madrid.

Then, in May, it was reported that Sterling is very much back on Los Blancos’ transfer radar, after losing his starting berth to Phil Foden.

Sterling’s future at the Etihad has also been called into question over the last few months after a fairly disappointing 2020/21 campaign.

Now, speculation on Wednesday claims that Sterling is attracting interest from Real Madrid after his performances at Euro 2020, and Los Blancos are said to be at the head of the queue for his signature.

Barcelona want three players for Griezmann

It was reported a few weeks back that Manchester City had an interest in Barcelona forward, Antoine Griezmann.

Pep Guardiola is said to be an admirer of the 30-year-old, and feels he would be a perfect fit for the false-nine formation frequently opted for at the Etihad during the 2020/21 campaign.

However, it appears that Barca want a number of players in exchange for the Frenchman.

The Manchester Evening News, citing reports in Spain, claim that Barcelona are considering selling Griezmann to balance their wage bill, and would consider a swap deal with Bernardo Silva, Aymeric Laporte or Joao Cancelo if City were interested.

Such a deal does seem rather odd, however, with City not expected to be interested.

Filip Stevanovic to be loaned out

Finally, Filip Stevanovic is expected to be loaned out this summer.

Stevanovic joined Manchester City from Serbian outfit artisan Belgrade in January of 2021 for a reported fee of around £3.75m.

The centre-back was then straight back out on loan to Partizan for the remainder of 2020/21.

And despite only just returning to Man City, it is being reported that Stevanovic is likely to be loaned out once again, with Serie A side Genoa linked.
