The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that the England player Raheem Sterling has been transferred to a rival Premier League team. On Sunday, it was reported that Liverpool reached an agreement with Manchester City to transfer Sterling in a deal with 49 million pounds( R954 million).
This would make Sterling the most expensive English player ever. The announcement was made during the press conference in Thailand where Liverpool are kicking off their pre-season tour to Asia and Australia.
“The situation is very simple. The club has agreed with another for a deal for Raheem to be transferred and subject to medical that he will go through” Rodgers said. “Contrary to the last week or so, in terms of what was written, Raheem and I have always remained very strong in our relationship and have been up until he left” he added.
