Ster­ling’s new strip

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

RA­HEEM Ster­ling will turn up in Aus­tralia af­ter all, al­beit not for Liver­pool who are selling him to Manch­ester City for a stag­ger­ing $ 102m.

The winger is ex­pected to smash the English and Man City trans­fer record in one fell swoop, be­com­ing the third most ex­pen­sive trans­fer in English Premier League history, be­hind Manch­ester United’s An­gel Di Maria and Fer­nando Tor­res’ $ 104m move to Chelsea.

Ster­ling was ab­sent from when Liver­pool re­sumed train­ing last week, cit­ing “ill­ness”, be­fore re­fus­ing to travel with the Reds to Aus­tralia. With the trans­fer, Ster­ling will join Manuel Pel­le­grini’s squad to­day or to­mor­row.
