Manchester City have agreed a transfer fee for Liverpool striker Raheem Sterling, according to Sky sources.
City appear to have finally got their man after Brendan Rodgers’ side reluctantly accepted a bid believed to be around £49m for the England international.
The wantaway forward was left out of Liverpool’s squad which flew out on Sunday for their pre-season tour of Thailand as talks over the big-money switch progressed.
Sterling twice failed to report for pre-season training earlier this week, blaming illness, and had reportedly asked Rodgers if he could be left out of the tour.
However, the 20-year-old, who has been at loggerheads with Liverpool since turning down a new contract earlier this year, now appears set to complete his move to the Etihad Stadium.
