Raheem Sterling hailed Manchester City's "incredible" development of him after signing a new five-year deal worth up to £300,000 a week.

Sterling had been in negotiations with Manchester City for several months and the England winger has finally agreed to the bumper new deal.

Sterling told City's website: "I'm delighted to sign".

But Sterling feels at home at City and believes the Premier League champions are the flawless place for him to continue developing. I felt from the minute I got here it was the right choice for me. "It's paid off and I'm really grateful".

"With the facilities we've got here there's no reason not to".

The England global has established himself as one of the Premier League's top attacking players, and put together a career year last season as City won the Premier League and Carabao Cup.

Capped 46 times by England, he scored twice against Spain last month - his first global goals for three years.

Sterling is now England's highest-earning player. "How we've developed with Pep with and without the ball, it's always nice for attacking players to have as much possession as possible, It's been a real joy".

Liverpool fans could be forgiven for feeling a sense of regret over Sterling leaving Merseyside for City in 2015 - especially those who equate his decision with betrayal.

City go into the clash in fine form after scoring a total of 12 goals in their last two matches against Southampton and Shakhtar Donetsk. Raheem was guaranteed to compete for the Premier League and Champions League every season, and work under one of the best managers of all-time.

Txiki Begiristain, City's sporting director, has secured another big name for the long-term and was obviously delighted.

'He's quick, strong and excellent in front of goal - everything a modern-day forward needs to excel.
