Chelsea has officially added Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling on a £45 million fee plus £10 million in add-ons, per Fabrizio Romano. Chelsea is also looking to bring in Manchester City defender Nathan Ake on a fee around £41 million. Thomas Tuchel has been busy in the transfer market and it’s resulted in some nice additions so far for the Blues.
Raheem Sterling will undergo medical tests today afternoon in London as new Chelsea player - been told it will take place in few hours. #CFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 10, 2022
Sterling will sign contract until June 2027 with an option for further year with CFC.
Sterling has agreed to a new contract which will take him through the 2026-27 season with Chelsea. He has the option for another year. We’ll see if Chelsea can close the deal on Ake, who is part of a Man City selloff during this window.
These moves come as Chelsea’s situation regarding Leeds United winger Raphinha remains unclear. Leeds maintains it has only accepted Chelsea’s bid of £60 million, but Barcelona has been in contact and is trying to make a move. Raphinha reportedly is also listening to Barcelona’s offer, so we’ll see how that all plays out.
