Manchester City and Liverpool have agreed a fee of £49million for forward Raheem Sterling.

The 2014 English Premier League champions have had their breakthrough in the pursuit of their summer target after having two bids rejected for the 20-year-old.

Manchester City will pay Liverpool a guaranteed sum of  £45million before  an additional £4million in add-ons.

Sterling will formally negotiate personal terms before undergoing a medical at City this week.

After rejecting  a new £100, 000 contract, Sterling informed Liverpool of his wish to leave the club Anfield this summer.

He missed two days of training last week after calling in sick and refused the club on their pre-season tour of the Far East.

Sterling has bid farewell to his Liverpool teammates.

He joined Liverpool as a youngster in 2010 for £500,000 from Queens Park-Rangers who will receive close to £9million as part of the Sterling's deal when they sold the player.

Liverpool agreed to pay QPR 20 percent of any profit from the forward's next move.
