One of the biggest transfer saga this summer and a question where will end up the 20-year-old English footballer Raheem Sterling, finally is resolved.

After rejecting two previous bids, Liverpool accepted the final Manchester City offer for their wonderkid and the England international, Sterling, has became the most expensive English footballer of all time.

The new Man City signing makes Sterling the most expensive English player in history, surpassing Andy Carroll who moved to Liverpool for £35m in 2011 and breaks Man City’s transfer record, which stood at £42m for Sergio Aguero.

Sterling has has completed his Manchester City medical this Tuesday and has put pen to paper on a five-year deal at Man City. The new Citizen should be wearing number 7 on his jersey and he should earn arround 278,000 euros per week.

The Citizens two times for far tried to buy Sterling earlier this summer, but the Reds both times snubbed their bid before a third and final offer which the Reds accepted. It’s a total of £44m plus a further £5m in add-ons, which was good enough for Liverpool to say, yes and to end Sterling’s transfer drama.

Another English side, Queens Park Rangers will welcome this deal open-armed considering that Sterling had a 20% sell-on fee in his contract after joining the Reds from QPR in in 2010 for £400,000.

A statement on Liverpool’s website read: “Liverpool Football Club can confirm Raheem Sterling has completed a transfer to Manchester City.

“The 20-year-old departs Anfield after 129 appearances and 23 goals for the Reds.

“Liverpool FC wishes Raheem well.”

While the Citizens boss, Manager Manuel Pellegrini said: “Raheem Sterling is one of the best attacking players in world football, and I am very much looking forward to him joining our squad out in Australia later this week.

“He is a young player with outstanding ability, and I am sure the Manchester City fans will be very excited about seeing him in action for the team.”

With Sterling in, Man City’s lineup for the next season could look like this.
