Manchester City star reportedly agrees to join Barcelona

In recent weeks, Barcelona's search for a reliable attacking option has been well documented. Mikel Oyarzabal, Raheem Sterling, and Dani Olmo are among the players whose names have been linked with a move to the Nou Camp.

Raheem Sterling's situation and a likely move to Catalonia in the coming window are reported by Mundo Deportivo.

The English striker is said to have given his approval to Barcelona, indicating his intention to join the Spanish giants. Sterling is said to be unwilling to renew his contract with Manchester City and is aggressively seeking a move to the La Liga giants in the upcoming transfer window.

In Catalonia, the plan is to sign the former Liverpool star on a season-long loan with a mandatory option to buy at the end of the season.

Due to a lack of reliable options in the last third, the Blaugranas have struggled in recent weeks. Injury has forced the withdrawal of Martin Brathwaite, Ousmane Dembele, and Sergio Aguero. Moreover, Ansu Fati is still not ready to play games.

There has been a dire lack of attack options, Since the first half of last season, Sterling's playing time has decreased significantly. The winger has been sidelined with the introduction of better options in the form of Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, and Bernardo Silva.

According to a report issued earlier this week, Pep Guardiola's side is prepared to reject any bid for Sterling in the upcoming transfer window. However, it is clear that the players' desire to leave the Etihad could be key.
