And thus Andy Carroll will no longer be the most expensive English footballer!
Liverpool have agreed the sale of Raheem Sterling to Manchester City in a deal worth £49m, which is £1m less than their reported evaluation. The transfer of the England international is subject to medical and personal terms
He’s now 12th most expensive footballer ever and world’s most expensive player aged under 21! Some English premium that.
Raheem Sterling is set to join Manchester City from Liverpool after a £49 million deal was agreed by the two clubs.
