Having been linked with Real Madrid following Manchester City’s UEFA Champions League ban, superstar Raheem Sterling has commented on the rumours.
A week ago, UEFA announced the Citizens would be unable to partake in Europe’s elite club competition for the next two seasons after they were found guilty of breaching Financial Fair Play rules.
Since the news broke, a number of City players have been rumoured to be on the radars of several top European sides, including 25-year-old Sterling.
When pressed to respond to the reports in a recent interview, the former Liverpool player admitted that while he is only concentrated on City, Los Blancos are a huge club.
"Right now I'm at City and I'm really happy. But I say Real Madrid are a fantastic club," he told Spanish outlet AS.
"When you see the white shirt you know exactly what the club stands for, it's massive.
"But at the same time, I have a contract with City now and I have to respect this. But it's a fantastic club."
Since his arrival at City in 2015, Sterling has scored 89 goals and assisted a further 71 strikes in 226 matches.
