MANCHESTER: England striker Raheem Sterling has revealed that he is ‘open’ to leaving Premier League champions Manchester City.
The 26-year-old former Liverpool forward has been at City since his £44m exit from Anfield in 2015, winning three Premier League titles, one FA Cup and four League Cups.
However London-raised Sterling has struggled to impress manager Pep Guardiola over the past year and been in and out of the team.
Despite this he was one of England’s driving forces en route to the Euro 2020 final.
Sterling, 26, has started only one Premier League game since the opening weekend of the season and scored only once so far in the Premier League.
He told an FT Business of Sport summit in the United States: “If there was the opportunity to go somewhere else, I would be open to it.
“At this moment in time, football is the most important thing to me. “I have always had something that maybe one day I would love to play abroad and see how I meet that challenge.
“I am not someone who complains. I have not tried to make it a bigger deal than it is. I am just raring to go, play football and score regularly.”
