It was reported Sterling was racially abused and attacked on Saturday after arriving at City’s training ground.
Greater Manchester Police said they arrested a 29-year-old on suspicion of racially aggravated assault and are treating the case as a hate crime.
City are yet to comment on the allegation or arrest.
