SNAPPED: Sterling was spotted browsing the aisles for a bargain

Despite living in a mansion worth £3.5million, the frugal England winger didn’t break the bank while shopping in central Manchester.

Stunned shoppers spotted the 22-year-old England winger browsing the aisles at a branch of the £1 budget store in the Arndale Centre.

Penny-pinching Sterling, who is the most expensive England player ever, was snapped clutching a white bag with a Poundland pull-along basket in tow.

Wearing a black cap and a hoodie, the millionaire even posed for a picture with a fan in the discount shop, just 14 miles from his £3.5m mansion in trendy Wilmslow.

In the photo he is seen with an unnamed fan wearing a yellow Nike t-shirt with ‘Football’ written on it.

Shoppers said they spotted him browsing the toiletries aisle – with a sign saying ‘Amazing Value Only £1’ hanging above him.

Astonished customers could barely believe the Sky Blues star, who signed from Liverpool for £49million, was chatting to customers and staff at the store.

Sterling is not the first footie star to be to be spotted shopping at Poundworld.

Chelsea legends Frank Lampard and John Terry have also been papped in the aisles of the discount store.
