Real Madrid hold a keen interest in signing four Manchester City players this summer, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Los Blancos intend to rebuild their squad over the next few transfer windows and have targeted Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sané, and John Stones as some of the candidates to replace outgoing, and aging, stars.
City will reject advances for any of their players and have told Madrid they are not available for sale, regardless of the price offered by the Champions League holders.
Sergio Aguero is a prime example of City’s firm stance when it comes to Madrid, or even Barcelona, expressing an interest in their most talented players.
City denied reports John Stones was going to be sold this summer following a poor run of form, and the club remains committed to strengthening their squad this summer.
Kevin De Bruyne signed a new contract until 2023 in January, while Leroy Sané and Raheem Sterling are expected to commence contract talks with City’s chiefs this summer.
City hope to sign Jorginho in the coming weeks and a world-class forward, so plans to replace first-team players are not on the agenda.
