Spanish giants Madrid have been tipped to make an approach for Sterling at the end of the season in the wake of City's two-year ban from European competitions, imposed on them by UEFA last week.
The England international has previously admitted to being interested in playing abroad and Los Blancos are reportedly ready to launch 'an all-out assault' to sign him.
However, with the Citizens still realistically fighting for silverware in three competitions, Ward has attempted to clarify Sterling's immediate future.
"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.
Kevin De Bruyne is another high-profile City star to have been linked with the Etihad Stadium exit, while Pep Guardiola's future is also unclear as the club battle to overturn their European exile. body check tags ::
