Manchester United are weighing up an audacious bid for Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling, according to a report.
The England international has been one of City's star performers over the past few seasons, scoring and assisting a combined 78 goals in the Premier League alone since the start of 2017-18.
Sterling has previously admitted that he would like to play in Spain one day, but he has offered no other indication that he is seeking a move away from City this summer.
However, The Independent suggests that the 25-year-old's stance may change if the Citizens' European ban is upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport this month.
It is claimed that United will test the water by making a move for Sterling if City are blocked from competing in the Champions League at their expense.
