Raheem Sterling: To miss Liverpool tour
Raheem Sterling: To miss Liverpool tour

Liverpool are in advanced talks with Manchester City over a move for Raheem Sterling who will not travel with the squad to Thailand on Sunday.

Sterling was on Saturday named in Liverpool’s 30-man squad for their tour of Thailand, Australia and Malaysia, but fresh developments over a potential move to a Premier League club – which Sky sources understand is Manchester City – mean he will not board the plane.

While there is no deal in place, we understand talks are now sufficiently advanced that Liverpool have chosen to leave Sterling behind to see if a deal can be completed
