Sports : Raheem Sterling needs a ‘new challenge’ and will have a ‘club queue’ that will be interested in him, talkSPORT said as Man City consider selling England forward

Raheem Sterling will have a ‘club queue’ interested in signing him this summer amid speculation Manchester City are ready to sell the England forward.

Recent reports have indicated that Sterling could be sold to fund a transfer war chest for City boss Pep Guardiola.

And former Man City winger Trevor Sinclair believes all signs point to Sterling moving on at the end of the season.

“I might be wrong, but reading between the lines and the media that is published, I think they would be willing to let him go,” Sinclair explained on Monday’s talkSPORT Breakfast.

“I think there is a potential move for Raheem this summer.

“You look at the individual; there are a few small rumors that Man City are ready to listen to the offers.

“You look at the way he played during his time at Man City and he was superb.”

Such is the esteem Sinclair places in Sterling, he believes there will be no shortage of interested suitors – despite a recent loss of form.

He added: “I think there will be a line of clubs who want to sign him, not over the last three or four months of form but over his last nine years of performance.

“He didn’t have any real injury issues. I look at him and he doesn’t look excited; he looks anxious to be there.

“He has proven to all the fans that he is a top player, so I think he needs a new challenge and I think that would coincide with the club model.”

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Arsenal have all been credited with holding a stake in Sterling, which has won three Premier League titles in six years at the Etihad since arriving from Liverpool.

But the 26-year-old has fallen out of favor under Guardiola in recent times, with Phil Foden taking his place in the starting XI, fueling speculation that he could be on his way this summer.
