Real Madrid, Chelsea And Two Others Interested In The Signing Of Raheem Sterling

 The Premier League winners are expected to have a busy summer of incomings and outgoings, as they look to build on their fourth league title in five seasons by expanding their squad and sanctioning sales for first-team stars looking to leave the Etihad Stadium.

Gabriel Jesus appears to be on his way out, with Arsenal and Mikel Arteta both showing interest after publicly expressing a desire for a new challenge, with Tottenham keeping an eye on the Brazil international's status in Manchester.

As he approaches the end of his current contract, Riyad Mahrez is anticipated to sign a new contract and commit his long-term future to Manchester City, with Ilkay Gundogan and Oleksandr Zinchenko's futures also uncertain.

However, it remains to be seen what the next months hold for England striker Raheem Sterling, who came on as a substitute in City's title-winning match against Aston Villa and set up Ilkay Gundogan for the first of his side's three late goals to cap a stunning comeback.

Sterling fell out of favor with Pep Guardiola early in the previous season and declared his intention to go overseas if his playing time at the Etihad Stadium did not improve, despite interest from Barcelona ahead of the January transfer window.

Despite being in and out of the squad during the business time of the season, the 27-year-old recovered to form following his reinstatement into the starting XI, playing a critical role in City's league campaign during the tough winter period.

A number of big European clubs have increased their interest in the London-born forward ahead of the summer transfer season, according to a fresh report by Jack Gaughan of The Daily Mail.

Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, and Barcelona have all strengthened their chase of Manchester City's top player, while Chelsea has also been mentioned as a possible destination for the former Liverpool man if he decides to move on this summer.

Sterling, who has one year left on his current Manchester City contract, has stated that he will not make a decision on his future until after England's forthcoming Nations League matches.
