Why I left Man City for Chelsea – Sterling
Raheem Sterling, the new Chelsea forward, has explained why he left Manchester City this summer.
The 27-year-old has completed his move to Stamford Bridge in a £47.5 million deal.
Sterling has agreed to a five-year deal with the Blues, with a one-year extension option.
He has already joined Thomas Tuchel’s squad in the United States for their pre-season tour.
“First and foremost, it’s a pleasure to be here. I’ve obviously achieved a lot in my career so far, but there is still so much more to achieve and I’m really looking forward to doing that in a Chelsea shirt, under Thomas’ management.
“London is my home and where it all started for me, and it’s amazing I now have the opportunity to play in front of friends and family week in, week out at Stamford Bridge. I’m really looking forward to meeting the fans there soon.
“I can’t wait to get going now and continue to do my talking on the pitch,” Sterling said.
