Man City would be wise to retain this 25-goal powerhouse despite growing interest from Real Madrid

Why Manchester City have to keep Raheem Sterling at all costs

Pep Guardiola has created something incredible at Manchester City with the Cityzens landing back-to-back Premier League crowns.

The Spaniard has also improved several players during his tenure at the club with Raheem Sterling being a perfect example.

The English winger was managing double-digit returns a few years ago but last season, he scored 25 goals and managed 23 in the campaign prior to that.

The winger has come a long way since his days at Liverpool and there have been some other big clubs keeping a tab on him.

The Athletic (h/t Daily Mail) claims that Real Madrid are interested in the 24-year-old and could make a move for him at the end of this season.

However, City have to do everything in their power to keep the sensation.

A star for the present and the future

Sterling was struggling to convert his chances a few years ago but is now one of the best finishers in the game.

Guardiola has helped the Englishman become lethal in front of the net, and Sterling already has five goals in five Premier League appearances this season.

The Englishman can develop further under Guardiola and he could become one of the best the Premier League has ever seen.

City have had their problems with wingers not hitting the mark as Riyad Mahrez hasn’t impressed yet.

Leroy Sane is out for a while and there are no guarantees the German will be back to his best after the lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Sterling has tons of potential and it will be difficult for City to find another winger like him on the cheap.

Madrid might have millions to splash on their targets but City don’t need to sell players unless they want to.

Sterling is a star for City and they need to ensure he remains at the club for several years to come.
