Raheem Sterling remained coy on his Manchester City future when quizzed ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final with Real Madrid.

The England forward’s current contract is due to expire in the summer of 2023 amid fairly frequent links with a move away from the Etihad.

City themselves have been linked with a move for Erling Haaland as a potential heir to Sergio Aguero’s throne, having missed out on Tottenham’s Harry Kane last summer.

Pep Guardiola’s fluid frontline offers plenty of options, although Sterling is one of only three City players to hit double figures for goals in the Premier League this season, alongside Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez.

In 41 appearances across all competitions this season, Sterling has scored 14 goals and has formed a major part of City’s success since Guardiola’s arrival in 2016, winning three League titles, four Carabao Cups and the FA Cup.

Speaking ahead of Madrid’s visit to Manchester, Sterling said: “I’m in a good mood and a good spirit.

“We’re fighting for the title and we’re in the semi-finals of the Champions League, so there is not much more I can ask for.

“I’m happy to be playing and to be contributing. It would be selfish of me to speak of any contract situation.”
