Raheem Sterling was Manchester City's shining star in their 8-1 win over the Vietnam XI.
Manchester City was in control the entire way and was able to put eight goals in the back of the net. Aleksander Kolarov, David Silva, and Raheem Sterling all scored two a piece and Rony Lopes and Jose Angel Pozo added one each. It was a good warmup for Manchester, who go into the new season without their top striker - Sergio Aguero. Aguero is still on summer break following his participation in the Copa America. Sterling will get a chance to lead his team to a fast start with Aguero missing at least the first week of action. Jul 27 - 12:40 PM

The protracted move that will see Raheem Sterling move from Liverpool to Manchester City is finally nearing the end with the clubs having agreed on a price.

The player has been excused from Liverpool's pre-season tour and there are widespread reports that the deal is a formality at this point. The move sees Liverpool lose their second marquee player in two summers after Luis Suarez left for Barcelona last summer. You could call it three in two if you don't believe that Daniel Sturridge is likely to recover from his injury issues to be a reliable contributor in the near future. For City, Sterling brings potential upside over Jesus Navas on the pitch and on the administrative side of things he adds to the homegrown player list at City which was looking bleak. The price is incredibly high but with UEFA lifting City's FFP restrictions, it isn't like it's our money.

Man City and Liverpool have agreed a fee of £49 million for the transfer of Raheem Sterling…

Finally. The transfer saga of the summer seems to be nearing a conclusion, with Liverpool and Man City agreeing a fee of £49m for Raheem Sterling. It is a million less than Liverpool’s valuation, but £24m more that City’s opening bid so while the moral victory might be at Anfield, Sterling will be at the Etihad. Subject to personal terms, of course. It was the turning down of a £100k deal that started this ball rolling in the first place, remember. The news will come as a relief to Manual Pellegrini, just 24-hours after the curious on/off Fabien Delph deal and a fair few weeks of do-si-doing with Juve’s Paul Pogba. The move could have a domino effect, nudging Edin Dzeko and/ or Stevan Jovetic closer to the Etihad exit. And possibly freeing up funds to for Liverpool to meet Aston Villa’s £32.5m release clause on Christian Benteke.

Man City target Raheem Sterling has been named the most valuable young player in Europe by the Soccerex 20 Football Value Index…

Despite topping the poll, ahead of the likes of PSG’s Marquinhos and Manchester United new boy Memphis De Pay, Sterling’s value has been set at just £35 million. I say ‘just’ because Man City have already had a £40m bid knocked back by Liverpool, who value him at £50m. And that is the one that counts, of course. Soccerex is essentially a networking organization that periodically produces studies like this, so their gravitas is limited. But it does to serve to demonstrate the gulf between PL transfer fees and the rest of the (real) world. According to these number Man United not only paid £7.2m over the odds for De Pay, but £15m over for ‘home grown’ Luke Shaw. And with Liverpool holding out for £50m for Sterling, it appears that a £15m hike is the going rate.

Liverpool prepare to take their spending past £80 million for the summer, which is good news for Man City as they launch a third bid to secure Raheem Sterling…

The Daily Express report that Liverpool are ready to meet Aston Villa’s £32.5 million release clause in Christian Benteke’s contract. The Belgian striker would be their sixth signing of the summer, taking their spending past £80 million. All of which is music to Manuel Pellegrini’s ears. City have already had offers of £25m and £40m for Raheem Sterling knocked back, but with an £80m hole in Liverpool’s budget it is widely thought that a third bid closer to £50m will finally land their man. Sterling reported back to pre-season training this morning and will no doubt want the matter dealt with quickly. Not least because he stands to pocket a £4m slice of his agents’ fee if a £50m deal is done, thanks to an unique contract arrangement.

Manchester City have apparently hit the targets UEFA set for them after running afoul of FFP regulations and the European governing body have lifted transfer and player expense restrictions for this summer.

Between PSG and Manchester City having restrictions lifted over the past week, there is the potential that the transfer market starts moving into high gear. The two big-spending clubs will likely be active with City especially eager to refresh their squad as they look to regain the Premier League title and push forward into the knockout stages of the Champions League. Raheem Sterling, Paul Pogba, and Kevin De Bruyne are all rumored targets for City now that the spending shackles are off.
Jul 3 - 2:08 PM

Chelsea are one of a number of teams interested in Raheem Sterling but will not meet Liverpool's valuation of Sterling, which stands at £50m.

Sterling is a very sought after player at the moment so we won't be surprised if someone pays £50m for him, and it will be interesting to see if Chelsea budge on their self-imposed limit. Sterling is a great player and is only 20 years of age, so a £50m valuation is not out of the question considering he is only bound to improve from here on out. He has the potential to be one of the top 5 or 10 players in the league within the next few years and any team that gets him will be making a move in the right direction.

Raheem Sterling should be aware that The Etihad hasn’t been the happiest of hunting grounds for Englishmen in recent years…

On the face of it, Raheem Sterling ticks all the boxes for Man City this summer. He is young, English, has proved himself in the BPL and wants to play in the Champions League. But then so did Jack Rodwell, Scott Sinclair and Richard Wright. Sterling will be the first Englishman since the three mentioned to pass through the revolving door at City back in the summer of 2012. Rodwell arrived from Everton for £12 million, played seven times and joined Sunderland last summer. Sinclair cost £4 million less but managed five matches less before being shipped out to Aston Villa in January. Goalkeeper Wright joined on a free transfer after brief spells at Sheffield United, Ipswich (his third) and Preston. He is yet to make an appearance, but has been retained for another year as back up to Joe Hart and Willy Caballero. Raheem will hope he is not sat next to him all season.

Liverpool have told Man City to double their £25 million bid for unsettled winger Raheem Sterling

Liverpool’s valuation of Raheem Sterling has dropped from ‘not available at any price’ a month ago, to £60 million last week and now down to £50 million. With the final figure likely to settle at somewhere between that and the £25 million currently on the table from City. Liverpool would resist any deal with bitter rivals Man United and Arsenal already have a surplus of lightweight attacking midfielders, so Chelsea are the only real competition City face for Sterling’s signature (in the PL, at least). Plus, Joe Hart is currently the only Englishman in the first-team squad and has been quoted as saying that UEFA’s home-grown rules means bringing in English players is ‘top of the list’ at City, following the departure of Milner and Lampard.

A £25 million bid for Raheem Sterling is ‘imminent’ as Man City re-stock their home-grown quota.

Raheem Sterling and Man City look an increasingly good fit, as the PL runners-up have already lost ‘home grown’ Frank Lampard, James Milner and ‘club-grown’ Derek Boyata this summer. This means their Champions League squad could be down to just 20, after last year’s financial fair play punishment cut their numbers to just 21. City welcome back Marcos Lopes, Jason Denayer and Karim Rekik after loan spells and rising academy stars like Pozo could be added to the mix, but we can expect to see the City cheque book come out – with Sterling the outstanding home-grown option. England manager Roy Hodgson said Sterling required ‘thicker skin’ after he was roundly booed in the Republic of Ireland friendly. But a City move would be more palatable for Liverpool fans than to neighbors United, which has also been mooted.

ESPNFC.com is reporting that they have sources that have indicated that Liverpool would be willing to swap Raheem Sterling for Theo Walcott and Kieran Gibbs.

The swap is an interesting one for both sides. Liverpool, potentially smarting from losing one top level player for cash last summer and not doing exceptionally well spending that cash, might be interested in a deal that yields them a potential 15 goal, 10 assist man (Walcott's 2012-13 stats in 24 PL starts) along with an upgrade at left back. Arsenal would have to find a replacement at reserve left back but would presumably jump at the chance to bring in a younger, and in some eyes more talented version of Walcott. It is a rare transfer window rumor that actually makes some level of sense for both sides even if swap deals almost never actually come to pass.

Raheem Sterling is thought to be wanting away from Anfield this summer as headlines in the UK press are saying that he has already put in a request.

According to Sterling's agent, "The story has been blown out of proportion", but let it be known that the his client and Liverpool will be meeting to discuss the matter later in the week. The young star has two years remaining on his current contract but apparently rejected an extension that came with a £100,000-a-week paycheck earlier in the season. Rumors have already associated him with Manchester City, Arsenal and Bayern Munich. Sterling is still very young and has carved out a role for himself with the legendary club. A move could very well backfire for him.

Liverpool climb to within four points of Manchester City for the final Champions League spot with a 2-0 win over Newcastle United.

Liverpool's domination of Newcastle continued this evening though for a while the Magpies game them a fight. The stage was set early though as Raheem Sterling scored in the 9th minute. Jordan Henderson sent a long pass to the speedster who had space on the left. Defenders closed down quickly but he sliced his way between them and lifted a shot into the far corner. He and Phillipe Coutinho were causing the Magpies problems for a stretch but eventually Newcastle showed some threat, especially toward the end of the half but couldn't finish. Sterling missed a chance to go up 2-0 in the 50th minute but a goal from Joe Allen and a sending off of Moussa Sissoko quickly put the Reds into a comfortable position. They have a blank in the PL for Week 33 but have a nice set of games lined up for the run in.

Raheem Sterling expects to be available for Liverpool's important match against Arsenal this weekend despite an early exit from the Three Lions for a toe injection.

The injection is supposed to heal damaged tissue in the area around the speedster's toe. Unless there is an unexpected setback between now and Saturday, one would imagine that based on the crucial nature of the upcoming match, Brendan Rodgers will name Sterling to his XI. With Daniel Sturridge already sidelined, the odds of Mario Balotelli getting a start are increasing by the day.
Mar 30 - 3:11 PM

Raheem Sterling has returned to training for Liverpool as the Reds prepare to face off against Besiktas on Thursday.

Things are looking good for the Reds attack as Sterling will be looking to join Daniel Sturridge to start in the same game for the first time since Week 3. The club is still assessing the fitness of Steven Gerrard though, so they may not be at complete full strength when they take on Southampton Sunday. Still, with the play of Phillipe Coutinho, the Reds have plenty of threat to their game right now. A trip to St. Mary's will be a test for them though, so investment is risky this week for Sterling and company.
