Raheem Sterling and Manchester City have failed to reach agreement over a new long-term deal.
Sky Sports News has learnt that the two parties remain poles apart on the player’s wages and at this stage no fresh negotiations are planned.
The 23-year old winger joins his England team-mates on the plane to Russia on Tuesday, having enjoyed his finest season to date, scoring 23 goals in all competitions for the Premier League champions.
It was hoped that a new deal could be concluded before the World Cup kicked off, keeping Sterling at City through to 2022.
However, SSN understands City have met Sterling’s representatives on two separate occasions since the season concluded on May 6, with the parties unable to find common ground over the player’s wages.
