Raheem Sterling’s concentration is fully on Manchester City and not somewhere else this according to his agent Aidy Ward.
There has been speculation that a series of City starts might leave the club following their ban from European football in the next two years with Sterling links with Real Madrid having gathered pace.
A £150m move to Real Madrid is said to be on the cards but Ward has attempted to rubbish the rumors by issuing a firmly worded statement on his client’s situation.
Ward said of Sterling: “Raheem is solely focused on Manchester City and will not be distracted by any talk of transfers to any club at the moment.”
City is understood to be confident that the ban will not lead to a mass exodus at the club with the club owner doing all they can to convince Guardiola not to leave the club along with several first-team stars including Bernardo Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and, of course, Sterling.
The club has asked players and their agents to remain calm over their futures, though speculation is sure to be rife about moves away from Manchester.
