The Blues are confident that they have won the race to secure the signature of England attacker, Raheem Sterling & are working on a £35 million deal with Premier League Champions, Manchester City.
After 7 years at the Manchester based club, the highly-rated winger is ready to depart the Etihad.
Sterling’s current contract expires in 12 months, and while he hasn’t submitted a transfer request, he has told Pep Guardiola that he’s open to a fresh challenge.
The England international is eager to return to London, according to Gianluca Di Marzio, who claims Thomas Tuchel’s side are now confident of finalising a £35 million transfer.
Chelsea Boss, Thomas Tuchel has been backed by Todd Boehly with huge funds to spend to boost his attacking options, and he believes the Speedstar can play a more key role at Stamford Bridge now that Ex-Manchester United striker, Romelu Lukaku is likely to return to Inter Milan.
Last campaign, Sterling was dropped from City’s starting lineup due to Bernardo Silva’s outstanding form, but Guardiola wanted to keep him. The addition of the £300,000 per week player could spell doom for Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
