The 20-year-old has become the most expensive English footballer of all time, so here is a look at the numbers behind the player's rise to prominence


Raheem Sterling has sealed his £49 million (€70m) move to Manchester City following an acrimonious PR war with Liverpool.

The 20-year-old has become the most expensive English footballer of all time but just how good is he?

In his breakout season, in 2013-14, he was a key part of the Liverpool team which went so very close to winning the Premier League, and now joins a club expected to win the title every year.

Last year was not quite as productive for Sterling, though. With Daniel Sturridge missing most of the campaign through injury and Luis Suarez enjoying life at Barcelona, Sterling was left to toil on his own.
