Manchester City are hoping to complete a £50million deal for Liverpool and England winger, Raheem Sterling, as per the latest reports on the matter.

This has been reported by The Independent, who also claim that the Etihad outfit could complete his signing imid-way through Liverpool's tour of Australia, where they will be playing their upcoming pre-season friendlies.

City rejected

City have already had two offers of up to £40m turned down by the Anfield club, as the Reds are standing firm in their bid to collect half of £100m for the young talent.

It has been reported that Liverpool’s resilience has paid off, as City Chairman Khaldoon Al-Mubarak is happy to meet the asking price and knows once the offer is accepted Sterling will agree personal terms as a formality.

Deal certain now?

City are content on Liverpool accepting £45m plus an extra £5m depending on his success at the club after his switch to Manchester.

Should the transfer go through it would break City's record fee paid for a player and also make Sterling the most expensive Englishman in history, overtaking West Ham forward Andy Carroll.
