Real Madrid reportedly identify Manchester City quartet Leroy Sane, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and John Stones as potential transfer targets this summer.

Real Madrid are reportedly interested in as many as four Manchester City players this summer as they look to raid the Premier League champions.

Los Blancos are expected to undergo a drastic overhaul of their squad this summer following a disappointing campaign on the domestic front which has left them third in La Liga and 15 points adrift of runaway leaders Barcelona.

Madrid are still in the Champions League semi-finals - and are favourites to progress to the final courtesy of their 2-1 away win over Bayern Munich on Wednesday night - but club president Florentino Perez is still reportedly planning to splash the cash regardless of what happens in Europe.

The Manchester Evening News claims that Madrid's main focus will be on Man City, with Leroy Sane, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and John Stones all thought to be on their wishlist.

Madrid view Sane as a possible alternative to Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, with Madrid understood to be lining up a £70m move for the newly-crowned PFA Young Player of the Year, whereas Salah would likely command a world-record fee.

However, City have made it clear that they will not entertain any bids for their key players this summer and are thought to be looking at offering Sterling a new contract, as they did with De Bruyne earlier in the campaign.
