Raheem Sterling has joined Chelsea from Manchester City in a £47.5 million deal.


The 27-year-old has signed a five-year deal with the option of an additional year at Stamford Bridge and has joined Thomas Tuchel’s club on their pre-season tour of the United States.


“First and foremost, it’s an honor to be here,” Sterling remarked. “Obviously, I’ve accomplished a lot in my career so far, but there is still so much more to do, and I’m really looking forward to accomplishing it in a Chelsea shirt, under Thomas’ direction.”


“London is my home and where it all began for me, and it’s incredible that I now have the opportunity to play in front of friends and family at Stamford Bridge on a weekly basis.” I’m incredibly excited to meet the fans there shortly.

“I can’t wait to get going now and continue to do my talking on the pitch.”
