Raheem Sterling: Life And Career
Born in Jamaica to Jamaican parents, Raheem Sterling moved to Liverpool at the age of five with his parents. There he started playing football and, during his early teens, joined Queens Park Ranger’s football academy. He started making a mark for himself in the academy and got noticed by a lot of people. He was then signed by Liverpool at the age of 16. He was signed for £450,000 up to £2 million depending on the number of appearances for the club. His start in his new club was slow, considering his age at that time, but in a season or two, he developed. By the end of the second or third season, he was a regular feature in the lineup.
In the 2013-2014 season, Liverpool became really strong, courtesy of the attacking players. Suarez was the main man, with Coutinho and Sterling on the wings and Gerrard to provide them support.

In 2015, Raheem Sterling went to Manchester City in a deal that was regarded as the most expensive deal for an English player. With Manchester City, he grew more as a player and won a lot more. He has won four premier league titles in seven years with City. Quite an astonishing record. However, there are talks that he might leave for Chelsea as the London club is really desperate to get new signings.
