Manchester City want Raheem Sterling to fight for his place amid links with a January switch to Barcelona, according to a report.

Manchester City reportedly have no plans to part ways with Raheem Sterling amid links with Barcelona.

The England international is yet to pen an extension at the Etihad beyond 2023 and has admitted that he would be open to a move elsewhere.

Sterling did feature from the first minute in Saturday's Premier League win over Burnley, but Pep Guardiola has stressed that he cannot offer the attacker assurances over his game time.

As a result, Sterling has been heavily linked with a January loan switch to Barcelona, who are running the risk of losing Ousmane Dembele on a free transfer next summer.

However, 90Min claims that City are determined to keep hold of Sterling next month, although they will not actively block him from leaving should the right opportunity present itself.

The 26-year-old made just his third league start of the season against the Clarets and has 115 goals to his name from 303 appearances in a City shirt, as well as 88 assists.
