According to reports, Raheem Sterling ‘wants his Manchester City future resolved in the next fortnight’ amid interest from their rivals Chelsea.

The forward is out of contract in 2023 and he only started 23 times in the Premier League last season.

The 27-year-old has been earmarked as a top summer transfer target for Chelsea.

The Telegraph have published a report on Sterling’s situation at Man City. The player ‘hopes to resolve his future in the next two weeks’.

Chelsea are ‘targeting’ him but there is ‘no frontrunner at present’ with Barcelona and Real Madrid also showing ‘interest’.

It is claimed that ‘Sterling grew frustrated in the second half of the last campaign when he did not start some of the big matches’.

The England international also feels that his next move ‘could define his career’. Should he leave City, Sterling wants it to be on a ‘better footing than his £49m departure from Liverpool’.

Meanwhile, Stan Collymore thinks Jurgen Klopp will believe he “dodged a bullet” with Jack Grealish:

“I recoil every time I see him on the front a newspaper because my concern is that, with the acquiescence of the media, he is painting himself as, ‘the new Gazza’. Everyone has been looking for one and we thought it might be Phil Foden for a while, but if Jack isn’t careful it’s going to be him.

“As soon as I read he was going to Las Vegas with a load of mates, I thought the media was setting the scene for a wild weekend. For all we knew, they could have been going off on a Buddhist retreat — but obviously the narrative is already right because of course he was going to stick on the Beatles sunglasses with his bleached blond hair and all the gear.

He added: “But then he’ll have a run of bad games and the dye will be cast, and once it’s cast it’s very difficult to get off. I guarantee Jurgen Klopp will be seeing the photos and thinking, ‘I dodged a bullet there’. While his boss at City, Pep Guardiola, will be saying, ‘Okay, you’re pickling your liver. Well, let’s see what you’re like in pre-season compared to the other boys’.”
