Barcelona are seeing the option of bringing in Raheem Sterling in the winter transfer window become more difficult. The Catalan giants wanted the England striker on loan, something Manchester City are not willing to accept.
Market journalist Fabrizio Romano said that City have been clear with Barcelona. Either there is a transfer for Sterling or the striker stays at the Etihad.
Barcelona cannot currently afford to make a signing of Sterling's calibre, as they are still in a very delicate situation financially speaking.
For this reason, the Catalan giants had asked Manchester City for Sterling on loan, with the possibility of signing him in the 2022 summer transfer window.
In this way, Barcelona have made it difficult for what could have been the big signing in the winter transfer window. Alemany will have to look for another reinforcement for the attack.
