Club Career

Club(s) Sterling joined the academy at Queens Park Rangers FC at the age of 10.  He was signed by Liverpool FC in February 2010 for an initial fee of £600,000, but this could rise to £5 million depending on how many appearances he makes for the first-team. Up until 2014-15, it was 91 Premier League appearances and eighteen goals. At the end of which, he expressed his desire to leave the club. And so his wish was granted, for on 14 July 2015, Sterling became Britain's most expensive player when he joined Manchester City FC for an initial £44 million, rising to £49 million. Sterling made 97 Premier League appearances and scored 31 goals up until 2017-18. During the 31 August 2017 Transfer Deadline, Sterling was used to tempt Alexis Sanchez away from Arsenal FC, being part of a player exchange.
