Raheem Sterling has reportedly held discussions with Pep Guardiola over his Manchester City future.
The England international has been heavily linked with a move away from the Etihad, with Barcelona linked.
And according to The Sun, Sterling spoke with Guardiola recently about his situation but, despite vowing to give his all in a new central position, will not enter into fresh negotiations over a new contract until he is convinced he remains a key part of his manager’s plans.
The 26-year-old has started just four of City’s 11 matches so far this term, with his only goal coming in a 5-0 rout of Norwich back in August.
Speaking after Sterling’s last start – against Paris Saint-Germain on September 28 – boss Pep Guardiola said:
“Raheem played really good as a striker against PSG. He created incredible spaces for all of us.
“I’d say Raheem can play good on the right, like he did in the 100 points season, he played incredibly good on the left when we got 98 points.
“And as a striker he always has the movements to create something for himself in front of the goal.”
