Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling is set to make a decision on his future at the club amidst the transfer rumours of a move to Premier League rivals Chelsea. According to the report from the Manchester Evening News (MEN), England international Sterling has been told to make a decision on his future by City officials. The expectation on the part of City officials is that the England player will make a decision on his future.
Sterling, 27, has a year left on his current deal at Manchester City and he needs guarantees over a regular playing time to commit his long-term future to the club. However, there are no guarantees from manager Pep Guardiola who has a star-studded squad at his disposal. Guardiola and City won't block Sterling if the England international decides to leave the club. City will prefer to sell him for a transfer fee rather than let him leave on a free transfer next summer when his contract is up.
