Chelsea are making preparations to sign Raheem Sterling from Manchester City. There have been increasing reports surrounding the interest in the player, and it seems that the bidding is now set to begin.
Marina Granovskaia was leading the negotiations with Manchester City, but she has left the club, following the change in ownership. As a result, Todd Boehly will be leading the transfer negotiations and the bid for the England international in the coming days.
Chelsea to bid for Raheem Sterling soon
Thomas Tuchel is an admirer of the winger’s talents, and wants him to join Chelsea this summer. Due to the arrival of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez at City, Sterling has doubts about the regularity of him playing, and he is exploring an exit as a result.
Personal terms for the move have been agreed, and now it is up to the two clubs to negotiate a transfer fee to finalise the transfer. Todd Boehly will be participating in the transfer negotiations firsthand, following the departure of Marina Granovskaia.
It is yet unknown how much Manchester City will ask for Raheem Sterling, but it won’t be a crazy amount since they don’t consider him an untouchable member of their team any longer. Moreover, with limited time remaining on his contract and obstructions to a new contract, the winger might be sold for a reasonable amount in the coming weeks.
