Liverpool outcast and youngster Raheem Sterling will undergo a medical at Manchester City on Monday after the former Premier League winners finally reached an agreement for the fee that could go upto the region of almost £49m as Liverpool decide to sell the England superstar.

The winger stayed back in England as manager Brendan Rodgers and his players departed for Bangkok for the pre-season tour as the clubs reached the final stages of negotiations.

Sterling will cost Manchester City an initial fee of £44m with a further £5m as add-ons. The player is now  free to discuss personal terms and undertake medical checks with his new employers. A long-term contract worth around £200,000-a-week has effectively already been agreed.

 

City’s first offering was an initial £25m bid which then went on to rise upto £30m and the second bid of £35m with add-ons to take the deal closer to £40m – which were all rejected by the Merseyside club.

Raheem will be Manchester City’s first significant signing of the window as Manuel Pellegrini’s side attempt to recruit more homegrown players into the set-up to bolster their options after the departures of Frank Lampard, Micah Richards, James Milner, Scott Sinclair and Dedryck Boyata this summer.

Their attempts to add Villa’s Fabian Delph to their squad, having activated the £8m buy-out clause in the midfielder’s contract, were thwarted on Saturday when the player declared his intention to remain at the Birmingham club. “I’m not leaving,” said the England midfielder, who had signed a new deal with Villa last season through to 2019 but had not travelled to Portugal for their pre-season training camp. “I’m staying at the football club and I can’t wait for the start of the Premier League season.”
