Raheem Sterling is set to undergo a medical at Chelsea ahead of a £50m move from Manchester City
Despite the departures of Romelu Lukaku, Antonio Rudiger, and Andreas Christensen this off-season, Todd Boehly’s consortium has allowed Chelsea to continue their preparations for the new season.
And they appear close to landing the first signing of the new era, with a move for one of the Premier League’s best strikers seemingly imminent.
Chelsea have agreed on terms with Manchester City to sign Raheem Sterling, according to David Ornstein of the Athletic.
The 27-year-old is set to sign a contract until 2027 with an option for another season, signaling the first major signing under new ownership.
Sterling began his senior career at Liverpool before moving to City in 2015, where he scored 131 goals in 339 appearances in all competitions.
However, the England international’s status under Pep Guardiola became less secure last season, with Phil Foden and Jack Grealish seeing increased time on the left-wing.
