The Old Trafford team are watching the situation of the ban on the European Cup in the next 2 seasons of Man City to find a way to approach Raheem Sterling.
MU sought to recruit Raheem Sterling
According to Independent, Man United will send a proposal to Raheem Sterling if the ban on European football in the next two seasons of Man City is upheld.
The player analysis department of coach Ole Solskjaer has been following the English midfielder for a long time. MU also understand that Sterling’s top priority is to move to Real Madrid if he leaves Man City. However, MU still want to seek opportunities in this deal.
In February, the European Football Association (UEFA) imposed a penalty banning Manchester City from attending the European Cup for the next two seasons due to a “serious violation” of the financial justice law (FFP).
Man City has filed an appeal with the Sports Arbitration Court (CAS). If the court process fails, the Etihad team will have to accept the penalty of UEFA and at the same time face the risk of losing a series of stars in the squad.
Raheem Sterling joined Man City in the summer of 2015, for a price of 63.7 million euros. In five seasons, he scored 89 goals and had 72 assists in 230 appearances in all competitions. Besides, he also won 2 Premier League titles, 4 English League cups and 1 FA Cup. Currently, he is assessed a transfermarkt of 128 million euros.
Sterling is the most feared opponent of Wan-Bissaka’s career
Although well-known as a defender with one-on-one skills in the world, Aaron Wan-Bissaka nonetheless has to abstain from a scary name: Raheem Sterling.
As of now, Man United fans can be assured that the price of £ 50 million for Wan-Bissaka is not expensive. The 22-year-old very well solved his issues on the right wing when playing very stable and effective. Coming to Old Trafford, Wan-Bissaka neverthless holds the document of being one of the high-quality defenders in England.
But despite being good at one-on-one, there is an opponent that makes Wan-Bissaka break out when she mentions: “I will say it is Raheem Sterling. Those are the battles I enjoy the most. Sterling keeps coming, head to head with me. It doesn’t matter if Raheem Sterling gets past him on the first try, he keeps doing it the next time. That’s what I like. “
Wan-Bissaka has encountered Sterling twice within the Premier League this season. There, the host team M.U won against Man City and Wan-Bissaka also silenced Sterling. Specifically, MU received 2-1 in Etihad last December before winning a 2-0 victory at Old Trafford in March – it become also the match in the Reds’ latest domestic league earlier than football should be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
