Manchester City make breakthrough in Raheem Sterling pursuit

The Citizens are speeding things up in order to acquire the signature of the Liverpool attacker who is keen on leaving Anfield this season

The UEFA Financial Fair Play body has showed some leniency on City and Paris Saint-Germain which means that both teams are now allowed to go on a spending spree this summer while also making sure that their books are balanced by the end of the current fiscal year.

And after this news broke, City once again reignited their interest in Sterling as they bid to bring the player to the Ettihad this summer. The cash rich English side is already pursuing the signatures of Paul Pogba from Juventus and Kevin de Bruyne from VfL Wolfsburg but want to first get a deal done for Sterling who has reportedly already agreed personal terms with Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

After seeing two bids rejected by the Reds, City are set to come up with an improved offer of 45 million pounds which the club feels would be sufficient to convince the Reds into selling a player who has his heart set on a fresh challenge.
