Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has revealed the reason behind his transfer from Liverpool to the Premier League champions four years ago.

The England international star talked about the controversial move from Liverpool to Manchester City in a chat with GQ Magazine.

According to him, he left for Manchester City as he had not won the Premier League title as at then.

The 24-year-old cited the Premier League title as his reason for the move.

Manchester City paid almost £50m to secure his transfer from the Reds in the summer of 2015 thus making him the most expensive English player.

His record was broken by club and national team colleague Kyle Walker who left Tottenham Hotspur to sign for Manchester City in 2017 in a £52m deal.

Raheem Sterling came close to winning the Premier League title at Liverpool during the 2014/15 season.

Liverpool were in pole position to win the title until the final two games when Manchester usurped the Reds to win the league title.

Raheem Sterling has since won back-to-back league titles with Manchester City.

He has been a key player since joining them from Liverpool.

Apart from two league titles, Sterling also has two Carabao Cup titles and one FA Cup title.
