Raheem Sterling has hailed Real Madrid as a “fantastic club” but insists that he is happy at Manchester City.
Real Madrid is widely reported to have a long-standing interest in England forward and, just days after Manchester City were handed a two-season Champions League ban by UEFA, Sterling gave an interview to Spanish newspaper AS ahead of their Champions League knockout tie next week.
Asked if he could see himself in Real Madrid’s team, he told AS: “It’s one of those things. Right now I’m at City and I’m really happy. But I say Real Madrid is a fantastic club.
“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.
“[Rumours of their interest], it’s something that you see all the time, but I’m a City player and I’m enjoying it at the moment, even if things haven’t gone quite planned in the league. We now have a massive opportunity in the Champions League.
“I keep saying Real Madrid is a fantastic club, there’s lovely weather, but I keep saying that I am quite happy at City.”
