Raheem Sterling ready to leave Manchester City as England striker reveals he ‘dreams’ of playing abroad


Sterling has been at Manchester City since 2015, but more recently he has slipped up the pecking order under Pep Guardiola.

The 26-year-old wants to get as much regular football as possible and has now opened the door to leave the Etihad.

Sterling, who has been selected more than 70 times by England, has also revealed that he would like to play on board someday.

“If there was an opportunity to go elsewhere, I would be open at that point,” said Sterling, who was speaking at the Financial Times Business of Sport US Summit.

“I keep saying that football is the most important thing for me, challenges that I set for myself from a young age and dreams, as well as to be honest with you, dreams of playing on board .

“As an English player all I know is the Premier League and I’ve always had something that maybe I would love to someday play and see how I take on that challenge.

“To be fair, I would have to learn several different languages. I like the French and Spanish accent.

Sterling has become a role model throughout his career, both on and off the pitch, and he has big plans for his retirement.
