Championship side Queens Park Rangers are set to receive a major financial boost from Raheem Sterling’s move to Manchester City from Liverpool, according to Sky Sports News.
The England international signed for Liverpool in 2010 from QPR for a fee of £500,000 with add ons that could see it rise to £5 million depending on the number of appearances made for the senior team.
He has been the subject of huge controversy over recent months, telling the Reds that he didn’t want to sign a new deal with the club, which eventually lead to Sterling refusing to go on a pre-season tour and failing to turn up to training at the club.
The 20-year-old is now set for a record breaking £49 million move to last season’s Premier League runners-up Manchester City, who are looking to add English talent to their ranks this summer.
The Hoops have a sell-on clause with Sterling meaning they get a cut of the transfer fee that he’s sold for, and it could see them netting up to £9.8 million.
