Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling is in talks with Barcelona over a January move, according to well-respected Barcelona journalist Alfredo Martínez.

“Sterling is in talks with Barça for January,” Martínez said.

Martínez reported the news about the England international to Onda Cero. Sterling has been linked with a move to Camp Nou for several weeks now as he has had a dip in form at club level and has played a lesser role under Pep Guardiola at City.

In nine Premier League games this season, he has scored one goal and provided zero assists.
