BARCELONA are keen to reignite their interest in Raheem Sterling when the transfer window re-opens in January.

The Catalan club tried to sign the 26-year-old in the last transfer window according to Sport, but a deal never materialised.

And now Nou Camp chiefs are ready to test Manchester City's resolve once again in the New Year.

Sterling has started just two out of City's six games so far this season, with Sport naming Barcelona as an 'ideal destination' for the 70-cap England international.

The winger has even given the thumbs up for a move to go ahead, according to reports.

But any potential move won't come cheap.

Sterling is valued in excess of £80million and earns around £300,000-a-week at the Etihad.

Cash-strapped Barca have more funds to play with than they did in the summer but money is still tight at the Nou Camp.


Despite the club's dire financial situation the Spanish giants sent Director of Football Mateu Alemany to Manchester in the summer to discuss a possible transfer for Sterling.

Barca's summer proposal reportedly included a swap deal including Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele or Sergi Roberto.

A loan move was also discussed between the clubs.

Sterling has played 298 times for Manchester City since his move from Liverpool in 2015, scoring 115 times so far for the Cityzens.

But he appears to have fallen out of favour under Pep Guardiola this season.
