Cape Town - Find out what England international forward Raheem Sterling's price tag of £49 million is more expensive than... 

SIX things Sterling's price tag is worth more than:

1. Total value of Peter Crouch's transfers

The tall forward, a former Liverpool striker and now at Stoke City, has cost £43.5 million during his career where he has been involved in 10 transfers.

2. Andy Murray's career earnings

The Scot has earned £24.6 million in his career on the tennis circuit...

3. Liverpool's net spend in the summer transfer window of 2014

The Reds brought in a number of new players, eight to be exact, when Luis Suarez departed the club but their net spend was just £33 million, some way off Sterling's price tag.

4. The prize money of well over TEN FA Cup wins in a row!

Arsenal walked away with £3.4 million for lifting the 2014/15 FA Cup. The Gunners have a long way to go if they want to win as much as Sterling costs.

5. Chelsea's cheque for winning the league last season

The Blues earned just £24.897 million for winning the 2014/15 Premier League title.

6. The Bundesliga transfer record

Bayern Munich paid £31.6 million to sign Javi Martinez from Athletic Bilbao in 2012.
