Born in Jamaica, Sterling moved to London at the age of five and began his career at Queens Park Rangers before signing for Liverpool in 2010. In July 2015, following a lengthy dispute over a new contract, he was signed by Manchester City in a transfer potentially worth £49 million, the highest transfer fee ever paid for an English player.
He represented England at under-16, under-17 and under-21 level before being capped at full level by the national team in November 2012, and performed at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Description provided by Wikipedia
