Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti insists that his side are not planning to make a move for Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling.

Carlo Ancelotti has played down speculation that Real Madrid are preparing to make a move for Raheem Sterling.

The Liverpool forward's performances for club and country in recent months have seen him linked with a move to the La Liga giants, who play the Reds in the Champions League this week.

The Madrid manager told the Sun on Sunday: "Sterling is a player of great quality, certainly one of the best in Europe. But we already have extraordinary talent here.

"To think of another striker for the Real Madrid attack is really extremely difficult. It's clear that Sterling is not in our plans."

Sterling has scored three goals in the Premier League this season.
