City are believed to be open to selling the winger as they look to bring in money to fund their own transfers. However, they seem unwilling to let the 27-year-old leave on the cheap, with recent reports suggesting that the cityzens would be looking for around £60million to part with their man. 

Despite City's high valuation of the winger, it is being reported that they may accept slightly lower offers for Sterling. Ben Jacobs of CBS Sports is reporting that the sky blues may be willing to accept an offer of £45million, similar to the fee paid for Gabriel Jesus.

The cityzens will be eager for a deal to materialise quickly. The club are on the verge of signing Kalvin Phillips and are targeting Marc Cucurella, so need to raise funds for both transfers in order to satisfy financial fair play rules.
