Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour has claimed Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling “would be a great signing” for Real Madrid.

The England international has one year remaining on his current deal at the Etihad Stadium and Paul believes he’s in the prime of his life.

“I can see some players thinking about trying a different league, a different culture – I wouldn’t put it past Raheem thinking about that,” Parlour told talkSPORT.

“He’s got one year left on his contract and, it’s amazing, I thought Raheem must be 30-odd now – but he’s only 27! He’s in the prime of his life and career and he doesn’t play on a regular basis because Man City have got so many good players.

“So, yeah, what a move. Real Madrid have surprised everyone this year. I expected them to win LaLiga, but not the Champions League. To beat Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea, and you’d argue two of those teams are the best in the world at the moment, it’s an amazing season.

“Antonio Rudiger is going there as well, Real Madrid are really stepping it up now and Raheem Sterling would be a great signing for them. He’d do a great job if he went there.”
