Gary Lineker hails Chelsea’s latest signing
Gary Lineker, a former Barcelona striker, responded to Chelsea’s most recent acquisition, Raheem Sterling.
Lineker referred to Chelsea’s acquisition of Sterling as a hell of a signing.
Sterling was acquired by Chelsea from Manchester City on Wednesday.
Today at Stamford Bridge, Sterling becomes Chelsea’s first acquisition of the Todd Boehly era.
When the England international returned to London to join Thomas Tuchel’s team, he signed a five-year deal earning more than £300,000 per week.
Chelsea announced the news on Twitter by posting a picture of Sterling wearing the club’s colours in the United States and writing: “A star in LA! #SterlingIsChelsea.”
Reacting, Lineker, who was the first big name to share his thoughts on Sterling joining Chelsea, wrote: “That is one hell of a signing,” he said as he retweeted Chelsea’s announcement post.
