Raheem Sterling has been tipped to make his transfer from Liverpool in the summer and several European heavyweights have been linked with a move for the England winger.
As per the reports from today’s papers, Manchester City have moved ahead in the race for Sterling as City are prepared to offer their striker Edin Dzeko in return for Raheem Sterling.
Manchester City have earmarked Sterling as their marquee signing in the summer and Liverpool have also accepted the fact that Sterling will indeed leave the club after Sterling’s agent made vile comments about the club and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.
City will look to use Edin Dzeko as the bait and beat other suitors for Raheem Sterling. The England winger is not happy with the role he has been given at Anfield and does not see Liverpool making any progress in seasons to follow.
Sterling will have the advantage of playing on the wings for City as Manuel Pellegrini ha sjust recognized winger in his set up in Jesus Navas. Manchester City do operate with a 4-4-2 formation which will enable sterling to fit in their system seamlessly.
Manchester City need to add some pace to their attack as the likes of David Silva, Samir Nasri and James Milner lack the pace to kill their opponents. Sterling looks an ideal signing on paper for City as the club are preparing a mega offer to bring the England international to Etihad stadium.
