Various reports over the weekend claimed that Chelsea’s signing of Raheem Sterling could be completed by this weekend, and those predictions still look to be on course.
The Daily Mail today stick their neck out and say that the winger could be ready to join Chelsea on their preseason tour of the US, which starts next week.
Sterling is apparently excited about the chance of joining Chelsea, especially as it allows him to move back to London. After leaving the capital to join Liverpool in 2010, the winger has spent all his subsequent years North of the Watford Gap.
A £45m deal seems good value for Chelsea, and Man City are pretty happy to let him leave.
All around, it’s a deal that has looked done for some time – and we wouldn’t be surprised if it was announced in the next couple of days. That’s plenty of time to get his plane tickets to the US of A.
