Raheem Sterling is now entering his last year of contract at Manchester City. Chelsea FC is now apparently in position.

Chelsea are reportedly interested in Manchester City attacking player Raheem Sterling. That’s what the Telegraph reports.

Accordingly, the blues are already positioning themselves for a first offer. Sterling’s contract with City expires in 2023, so a sale could be an option for the English champions.

Raheem Sterling issue at Chelsea? Manchester City wants 70 million euros

According to the Telegraph, City would prefer to sell the 27-year-old Englishman to a foreign club if the worst came to the worst. However, with Chelsea likely to be able to pay the at least €70m transfer fee that City would like, the Blues should not be excluded as buyers.

Sterling has been with City since 2015 and has won four English league titles with the Skyblues to date. Last season he scored 17 goals and nine assists in 47 competitive games.
