Sterling has been one of the best players on the planet since the start of last season, with the England international playing a huge role on his side’s domestic dominance during that time frame.

Should Barca end up hiring Xavi some time soon, it seems like the Spaniard may not be the only one making his way to the Nou Camp if this report is anything to go off…
