Manchester City look to spend a lot of Pounds Sterling on Raheem

Liverpool have reached an agreement with Manchester City over the £49m transfer of Raheem Sterling.

The transfer of the 20-year-old England winger is subject to contract negotiations and a medical.

Sterling had asked to leave Anfield and was the subject of two bids from City in June, which were rejected.

The 20-year-old is under contract until 2017, but turned down a new £100,000-a-week deal at Liverpool.

On Saturday, Sterling was named on a 30-man list for the tour of Thailand, Australia and Malaysia, but was then withdrawn.

Several former Liverpool players have criticised the player since he told manager Brendan Rodgers and chief executive Ian Ayre he wanted to leave the club this summer.

Editor’s Note: Well it seems as if Manchester City are finally going to get their man, but at quite a price. The fact that they are looking for Home Grown players this Summer has been well documented and that they will have to pay a premium to get them, which at £49m certainly seems to be the case. After the snub by Fabian Delph yesterday they aren’t taking any chances in terms of a second blanking and have opened up the chequebook to finally prise Sterling from Liverpool to Manchester. So that’s 1 more Home Grown player, now they just need another 4 more – but at what price?
