According to several rumors, Chelsea and Raheem Sterling of Manchester City have reached an agreement. According to CaughtOffside and other sources, the agreement between the two teams has been reached.
Although a cost between Manchester City and the Blues had not yet been agreed upon, Sterling has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in recent days. However, it now seems that the deal is almost ready to go through.
The Englishman is thought to be a target for Thomas Tuchel, who apparently even personally approached the player.
Richarlison is one target who won’t be joining Chelsea this summer, though, as rivals Tottenham Hotspur have reached an agreement for the Brazilian, and Raphinha, another Brazil international, appears to have passed up the Blues in favor of a move to Barcelona.
In 339 games for the Citizens, Sterling scored 131 goals and contributed 95 assists. He also won 12 trophies, including four Premier League championships. Sterling will go to west London.
However, the 27-year-old failed to find playing time toward the end of the previous campaign and is rumored to be enthusiastic about the prospect of rising to the top at Chelsea.
