Spanish trio Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are interested in signing Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling this summer, according to Daily Mail.

Sterling, who has won nine major trophies with City, is heading into the final 12 months of his contract at the Etihad Stadium and Manchester City are expected to cash in on the forward to avoid losing him for free next summer.

Premier League rivals Chelsea are also interested in signing the Manchester City forward this summer.

Sterling did not start either leg of the Champions League semi-final against Real, with Riyad Mahrez and Gabriel Jesus preferred both home and away and is said to be considering his future at Manchester City as he is no longer a guaranteed starter for Pep Guardiola.
