Manchester City Make Key Duo 'Available' For Summer Exit

As the football world continues to digest Manchester City’s dramatic comeback against Aston Villa on the final day of the season to clinch the Premier League title, it has also began months of endless discourse about the club’s incomings and outgoings.

The latter in particular, with Gabriel Jesus’ potential move to Arsenal, Barcelona and Juventus reported as possible future destinations for Ilkay Gundogan and Oleksandr Zinchenko.

Another talking point looks set to join this list as two key Sky Blues players have been speculated with bidding farewell to the Etihad Stadium.

According to the latest information provided by Miguel Delaney of the Independent, Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling are two names that Manchester City are understood to have made ‘available’ for a transfer away from the club in the summer.

In the case of Bernardo Silva, he has been extensively linked with making a switch to Barcelona next season, who have widely been reported to be eyeing his addition as midfield star Frenkie de Jong looks set for a switch to Manchester United.

Manchester City fans may have reasons to be fearful of the Portuguese international’s departure, as he was heavily speculated with heading to Catalonia last summer, and is yet to put pen to paper on a contract that would extend his time at the club beyond 2024.

As for Raheem Sterling, the situation around his future is even more uncertain, as the player’s current deal is set to expire in the summer of 2023 - which indicates that arriving at a conclusion about where the England international's immediate plans lie sits at the top of the Premier League champions’ agenda.


With both Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling being virtually irreplaceable in terms of what they offer to Manchester City, it is unlikely that the club will let either player depart unless they have a suitable replacement lined up.
