New Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling has resume training with his new teammate.

The 20-year forward completed his £49m move to the Citizens and flew out to join his new teammate on their pre-season tour of Australia on Thursday, July 16.

He joined up with training this morning along side the likes of Vincent Kompany, David  Silva and Yaya Toure.

Manuel Pellegrini has hailed his new signing, insisting that he is worth every penny.

"Well the price is so difficult because is it a real price or not?" said Pellegrini.

"I think it will depend on the performance of the player over the next years. Every time you want to meet a player, the price is high.

"I think it was important to make a bid and have the necessary players. After that there are so many things to analyse. I repeat the price is not the most important thing.

 

"The most important thing is choosing the player you think that you need. After that it depends on what they can do.

"But he can play as a centre-forward, he can play on the sides of the wings. He is a very young player and he has a lot of things that he can improve but for him he has a new challenge in our team. He will be playing with great players. He can improve his game and improve us as a team."
