Real Madrid: Zinedine Zidane targeting Raheem Sterling as his overhaul plans continue


Zinedine Zidane is targeting Raheem Sterling as plans for his Real Madrid overhaul continue, according to reports.

The returning Los Blancos chief has already signed Brazilian defender Eder Militao since he was reappointed on Monday.

But he has now drawn his focus to attacking options – and Sterling is on the top of his wish-list.

According to the Mirror, Bernebeu chiefs have been watching the 24-year-old ‘closely’ and are set to make a bid in the summer.

In 2015, while Sterling was at Liverpool, Zidane admitted he was an admirer of the Englishman, saying he had been “monitoring him as a player”.


But following Sterling’s remarkable development under Pep Guardiola, the interest now seems to have stepped up a notch.

Sterling has netted 15 league goals and added nine assists this season – and he is on course to break his best goal-scoring record in the Premier League.

He has risen to become one of the most valuable members of Guardiola’s star-studded line-up and according to Oddschecker, is third favourite to be named the Player of the Year, behind his team-mate Sergio Aguero and Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk.

However, it will take a sizeable bid for Man City chiefs to consider letting Sterling go, as he signed a new contract with the Manchester club last November, keeping him Etihad bound until 2023.
