RAHEEM STERLING is still no closer to signing a new contract – yet that does NOT mean he will be offloaded if Jack Grealish ends up at the Etihad.
Manchester City would love Sterling to nail down his future, even though talks have still to resume talks after initial discussions last season.
But there is no panic from the club as the England star, one of the heroes of England’s march to the Euro final, has two years left on his current deal.
英镑, already one of the club’s best paid players on around £300,000-a-week, is a key man in Pep Guardiola’s plans, despite struggling for form towards the end of last season.
After his displays for England this summer, the striker’s stock is higher than ever and he will not be sold even if City land Grealish AND 哈里·凯恩.
City have constantly insisted there is no rush to seal the deal, after talks went on ice in the hectic finale to last term, immediately followed by Euros duty.
Yet one man whose Etihad future is close to being sorted is John Stones, who will sign a new contract worth £175,000-a-week when he returns to training.
Stones is only due back at the end of this week and will extend his current terms – which have 12 months to run – when he does.

The Premier League champions are hoping to seal a £100million deal for Grealish over the next week.
Guardiola has set his sights on bringing in the England playmaker as he bids to lead the club to Champions League glory.
City lost the final last season and Guardiola wants to strengthen his team after their near miss and the departure of Sergio Aguero.
