Barcelona are likely to fail in an attempt to remove Raheem Sterling from Manchester City in January.

The Catalan giants have made no secret of their desire to sign the English forward, whose playing time has been shortened under Pep Guardiola this season.

Sportsmail revealed in 2019 that Xavi had designated Sterling as a player he wanted to sign should he ever take over at the Camp Nou and Joan Laporta is now looking to structure a deal.

Barcelona has yet to open a dialogue with City and its current financial constraints make any offer problematic.

Sterling earns up to £ 300,000 a week at the Etihad Stadium and Barca is expected to require the City to subsidize a percentage of those salaries in a loan agreement.

City, who rarely conclude transfer deals in the winter window, would resist that idea and want the 26-year-old to sign a new contract as he enters the last 18 months of his current contract.

Sterling has revealed this season that he could leave in 2022 if his playing time doesn't improve.

Guardiola has accepted that they would have to analyze Sterling’s situation if he does not want to extend and his representatives took a considerable offer to the club’s board.

But Sterling hopes to force a way back to Guardiola’s preferred XI, with the £ 100 million summer contract Jack Grealish starting most games from the left side so far. Phil Foden played there during the dominant 2-0 win at Manchester United last weekend.

Guardiola traveled to Catalonia while Xavi was introduced as Ronald Koeman’s successor earlier this week before visiting the training base of City’s sister club Girona.
