Kylian Mbappe has changed path ways and extended his contract with Paris Saint-Germain and and Real Madrid are now scrambling to sign alternative targets. One such player who has emerged as a possible option is Raheem Sterling.

In a report published by The Daily Star, it is said that Los Merengues want to sign Sterling for around 59 million euros, having long been admirers of the former Liverpool forward.

Whilst the Spanish coach has done a lot of Sterling‘s development, he is no longer a regular starter with the team and was introduced only from the bench in the second half of Manchester City‘s title deciding fixture against Aston Villa on Sunday.

In a report published by The Daily Star, it is said that Los Merengues want to sign Sterling for around 59 million euros, having long been admirers of the former Liverpool forward.

At 27 years old, Sterling is approaching the prime of his career and after having reached fantastic highs with the Blues, he may now be looking for a new challenge.

One of the beauties of Mbappe‘s move to Real Madrid was that he could thrive in a wide position and then eventually take over from Karim Benzema through the centre.

Furthermore, Rodrygo ended the 2021/22 season in such fine form, you’d have to ask whether Real Madrid want to jeopardise his development, especially when you look at the success a patient approach with Vinicius Jr has provided on the opposing flank.
