Raheem Sterling: Manchester City forward in line for debut

New Manchester City signing Raheem Sterling is expected to make his debut for the club against Roma on Tuesday.

Sterling, 20, became the most expensive English signing after moving from Liverpool for a potential £49m fee.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini said the forward will take part in the International Champions Cup match in Melbourne, Australia.

"Raheem worked with Liverpool for three days and so he will play some minutes," said Chilean Pellegrini.

He added: "I know him. I've seen him play against us for the last two seasons, but I think it's important for him to try and have minutes with our team as soon as he can."

Other returning international players such as England goalkeeper Joe Hart, Spain midfielder David Silva and Bosnia-Hercegovina striker Edin Dzeko could also be involved.
