Could Sterling join Real Madrid or Barcelona?

Raheem Sterling's lack of football at Manchester City this season is close to pushing the English forward towards the exit door, with an apparent rift with Pep Guardiola hardly helping matters, but which Spanish club is a more likely destination, Real Madrid or Barcelona?

In 2021/22, Sterling has just only two Premier League matches with the appearance of Jack Grealish having done little to help his odds of ordinary football. 

There is additionally the little matter of Cole Palmer's advancement inside the club's inconceivably costly institute framework which is pushing Guardiola to settle on an early choice on Sterling's future. 

Barcelona are keen on marking Sterling, he would upset their forward line, at this point the requesting cost from around 80 million euros would be immensely tricky for the Catalan goliaths.

Real Madrid have far more money available for transfers, which logically makes them the more likely destination, however Florentino Perez is looking elsewhere as a priority with Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe having both been linked to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in recent times.

You can't rule out PSG, who may be looking to bring in a wide player to replace the likely outgoing Mbappe, whilst a Liverpool return isn't seen as totally implausible by bookmakers, although fans of the Merseyside club will hardly relish such an outcome.
