Raheem Sterling To Chelsea Done!
The pacey winger who was spotted yesterday in London ahead of his much anticipated Chelsea move is rumoured to have signed all the documents pending his official announcement.
To secure the England international, Thomas Tuchel’s side paid an initial fee of £45 million. As outlined in the contract, Sterling will be staying at Stamford Bridge for the next five years.
“Raheem Sterling has completed main part of medical tests in London yesterday, contract signed until June 2027 plus option for a further season as new Chelsea player. Matter of time for the official statement. 🚨🔵 #CFC
“It’s all signed also between clubs with Manchester City, confirmed Fabrizio Romano.
The 27-year-old forward is expected to join the rest of the squad in the United States for the pre-season tour.
In preparation for the imminent 2022/23 campaign, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is said to have had talks with the player explaining his key role in the squad.
Chelsea is busy in this transfer market season as it aims to set a fierce frontline. This comes after striker Romelu Lukaku left the club to rejoin Inter Milan.
Coming in from Inter with impressive statistics, many thought that Lukaku was going to dominate the English Premier League. Unfortunately, the Belgian failed to live up to the expectations of many and of his mouthwatering £97.5 million prize tag.
Meanwhile, Tuchel has suffered a big blow as his next target Ousmane Dembele is reportedly set to renew his contract with Barcelona
According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea will make a new signing announcement at any time now, after Raheem Sterling completed the majority of his medical examinations last night. It will be the first signing for Chelsea under Todd Boehly management.
