Raheem Sterling ‘will be a Chelsea player’, talkSPORT told with transfer from Man City close, as Todd Boehly continues to back Thomas Tuchel June 29, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer

Man City and England forward Raheem Sterling ‘will be a Chelsea player’ by the end of the transfer window.

That’s according to talkSPORT’s Alex Crook, who has praised Todd Boehly for ‘backing’ Thomas Tuchel in the transfer market, with the Blues closing in on numerous deals.

Sterling, who has won four Premier League titles at City, looks to be the first of those, with the champions happy to let him leave this summer.

And Crook believes that a deal will be completed ‘in the near future’, as Chelsea look to assemble a title-winning squad for next season.

“It’s a fascinating situation at Chelsea,” Crook told talkSPORT Breakfast.

“With the new owner coming in, Todd Boehly, pretty much making himself the de facto director of football… we’ve got to say [Boehly] is backing his manager. 

“I think Raheem Sterling will be a Chelsea player in the not-too-distant future, making that move from Man City. They’re in for Nathan Ake too, another of Pep Guardiola’s title winners.  

“We know that they’re keen on Matthijs de Ligt, and now this Raphinha deal has almost come from out the blue. They’ve come in on the blind side, they’ve hijacked the Arsenal deal.

“I was worried for Chelsea because they’ve lost some key players, the likes of Antonio Rudiger, [Romelu] Lukaku going back to Inter Milan after a very disappointing return to English football. 

“But, you have to say, if they get Raheem Sterling and Raphinha, those are two very exciting signings.”
