Despite the fact that until now it had been reported that the negotiations between Manchester City and FC Barcelona for the transfer of Raheem Sterling had stopped for economic reasons, now another possible reason has been revealed

Raheem Sterling remained in the radar of the FC Barcelona by long. The English was called to be the signing crashes of the Barcelona in this market of wintry signings but, of a moment to another, the history change and the negotiations suffered a 'frenazo' absolute. It had commented that the 'citizens' had put the letters on the table and did not go to leave leave to the extreme by less than 80 million euros.

However, 'The Sun' has informed that exists another version of the history. And it is that the option of Sterling lost total weight for the Barça when it arrived Xavi Hernández to the Camp Nou, around the middle of November, and bet to the one hundred by one hundred by Ferran Torres, the one who himself finish arriving to the City Condal in this window of transfers.

In England informed in a few opportunities that Sterling was had to abandon the Etihad Stadium and, in fact, would have asked eases to go out of the team in January. Pep Guardiola opened him the door in a pair of occasions, but from the club denied to leave him leave if it did not arrive a good offer.

"Raheem Is our player, has been very important for the club. We will see that it happens, but I can not ensure minutes to anybody. What want of Sterling, and of all my players, is that they are satisfied here. If they are not it, will have to take a decision", even said the trainer of Santpedor. Finally, Sterling finished remaining in the Manchester City and his situation has changed (for better).

Sterling goes back to feel important in the City

After a beginning of season very irregular and in which it did not add a lot of opportunities, Raheem Sterling has achieved a gap in his team and begins to add importance for Pep Guardiola. Recently it was recognised with the prize to the Best Player of the Premier League in the month of December and to day of today accumulates 1.648 minutes delivered in 26 parties.

It has added nine goals and delivered three assistances to his mates. It is necessary to stand out, on the other hand, that Guardiola has begun to trust more in him. It has split like titling in 14 opportunities and seems to settle much more that before. The interest in changing of airs could have remained in the past.
