Aidy Ward, the agent of Raheem Sterling, has spoken about his client's future after Manchester City were banned from the next two editions of the Champions League, pending an appeal.

Sterling, who has a contract at the club until 2023, is one of the players who could become unsettled if City are left without European football. 

However, Ward says now is not the time to talk about his future, with Real Madrid long-time admirers of the England forward. 

"Raheem is solely focused on Manchester City and will not be distracted by any talk of transfers to any club at the moment," he told the Mirror and the Daily Mail.

Since news broke of the Champions League ban, Madrid's possible interest has again resurfaced in the English press, but Sterling is not the only one being linked with a move away from the Etihad. 

The club's other star players, such as Kevin de Bruyne, and even coach Pep Guardiola could be among the exodus if the European ban is ratified by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
