Pep Falls Out With City Star?

Spanish tactician Pep Guardiola has reportedly fallen out with one of Manchester City's highest-paid players and will look to sell him at the end of the season.

Report: Haaland Agrees Terms With EPL Giants

According to Football Italia, the ex-Barcelona manager is no longer on good terms with winger Raheem Sterling, whose importance in the side appears to have waned since the beginning of the campaign.

Guardiola once seemed to rely on the England international weekly, but could be open to moving the player on in the next window, with AC Milan mentioned as a potential destination. 

The Citizens will reportedly offer the former Liverpool attacker's services to the Rossoneri, who are said to currently be in talks with Bahraini investment fund Investcorp regarding a big-money takeover. 

It is claimed that, should the takeover be completed, the group could inject as much as £249 million (R4.9 billion) into the Italian club's transfer kitty, making a move for Sterling, 27, realistic.

Although his future has been unclear since the start of the current campaign, he does still have a contract in England until 2023, a deal that reportedly sees him earn about £300 000 (R5.9 million) a week in the Premier League. 

While Sterling has come back strong from appearing to be completely out of Guardiola's plans earlier this term, his apparent fractured relationship with the tactician is likely to need addressing ahead of next season, particularly with City linked with some high-profile players. 

Erling Haaland is rumoured to have reached an agreement to join the EPL champions, and is reportedly set to become the team's best-paid player on a weekly wage in excess of £500 000 (R9.5 million), which could make it difficult for City to negotiate new deals with existing players whose contracts are heading for expiration.
