Real Madrid are reportedly targeting Raheem Sterling for a transfer in the near future, despite the public denials by Carlo Ancelotti that the side are not interested in him, as reported by fichajes.net.
Ancelotti believes that the addition of the Liverpool winger would add more speed to his attack, something that the Spanish club already possess plenty of in the form of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.
Despite having little impact in the game between the two sides last week, Sterling has emerged as one of the top young talents in Europe since the turn of the year.
He was imperative as Liverpool put together a surprise title challenge in the later stages of last season.
Ancelotti has been tracking Sterling for a while, and it would be a significant boost for the former Chelsea boss if he could get his man.
Real beat Barcelona 3-1 in last night’s El Classico, the first of the season.
