Raheem Sterling on Brink of Chelsea Transfer as Man City Exit Appears Imminent

Chelsea are in pole position to land Raheem Sterling after Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola signalled that winger is now surplus to requirements. City paid Liverpool just shy of £50m to sign Sterling in 2015 in a transfer which provoked outrage among Reds fans, who labelled the player greedy. But it seems his trophy-laden spell in Manchester is set to come to an end with Sterling, 27, now massively odds-on to be playing for Chelsea next season.

Chelsea Transfer Targets: Who Will Chelsea Sign This Summer?

Coming off the back of a Champions League triumph, many expected Chelsea’s 2021/22 campaign to take the world by storm. However, the reality was far from expectation and reinforcement is needed at Stamford Bridge this summer. Chelsea finished third in the 2021/22 Premier League season with 74 total points – 19 adrift the champions Manchester City, who pipped Liverpool to the crown on the final day of the season. Thomas Tuchel’s side fell short in two cup finals, losing to Liverpool on penalties in both the Carabao Cup and FA Cup at Wembley following two stalemates after 120 minutes each. Under new ownership from Todd Boehly after a £4.25bn takeover from Roman Abramovich, Blues fans are expecting an influx of cash this summer to bolster their squad and challenge for a seventh league title i...

Arsenal FC Transfer News: Raheem Sterling linked with a move to the Gunners

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has been linked with a move away from the Premier League giants recently and it appears that the player wants to go out on loan when the transfer window reopens in January. According to Ian McGarry from the Transfer window podcast, the player has already informed Manchester City that he wants to leave on loan and it remains to be seen whether the Premier League side are willing to sanction his departure midway through the season. Apparently, Arsenal are the only club interested in signing the England international and a return to London would be a tempting proposition for Sterling. There is no doubt that the 26-year-old is one of the best wingers in the Premier League but he has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester City this season. The former ...

Barcelona ready to take huge step to land Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling

Barcelona’s performances in La Liga this season have been terrible.  The Catalans are currently ninth in the league standings, having lost three matches and suffering five draws so far.  Ronald Koeman was fired from his position in October after the Spanish side suffered a series of disappointing results this campaign.  With Xavi Hernandez as their new manager, Barca will be looking to rebuild the team and sign some quality players in the January transfer window.  One of their prime targets is Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling but they reportedly don’t have the finances to sign him in January.  However, as per The Sun, the Catalans are thinking about selling Frenkie de Jong in the next window to fund a move for the England international.  De Jong was a t...

Highly-rated midfielder could join Manchester United instead of Barcelona

Dani Olmo has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona recently with the 23-year-old said to be very keen to return to Camp Nou.  The attacking midfielder made it clear that he wanted to play for the Catalans when they tried to sign him in the summer.  However, he is not so sure now due to Barca’s reported interest in Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling.  And so he could decide to join United who are also very keen to secure his services, as per El Nacional.  The attacking midfielder’s current contract at the Red Bull Arena is set to expire in 2024, having penned a four-year deal in 2020.  Dani Olmo started his youth career at Espanyol before switching to Barcelona in 2007.  He spent seven years at the Catalans and later joined Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb in...

Manchester City want £45m for letting Barcelona target leave

Barcelona are interested in signing Raheem Sterling who is currently on the books of Manchester City, according to reports.  The English footballer joined the Sky Blues in the summer of 2015 in a £50m deal from Liverpool.  Since his arrival at the Etihad Stadium, he has clocked up 307 appearances across all competitions, scoring an impressive 116 goals in the process (stats from Transfermarkt).  However, the 26-year-old has only started three Premier League matches this season under manager Pep Guardiola, with Jack Grealish and Phil Foden ahead of him in the pecking order.  He remained on the bench in the Citizens’ 2-0 victory over Manchester United last week.  The talented winger’s current contract at City is set to expire in 2023 and it is said that he doesn’t wa...

Manchester City want €80m for Barcelona target

Manchester City want €80 million for letting Raheem Sterling leave amidst Barcelona interest, according to reports.  The Catalans have made a terrible start to the 2021-22 season and are currently seventh in the league standings.   They are said to be keen to strengthen their forward ranks and the 26-year-old is reportedly one of their priority targets.  However, as per Spanish outlet MARCA, the Citizens want €80 million to let their forward leave the Etihad Stadium.  Barca are reportedly not in a great financial situation now and so they cannot afford to spend such a huge amount for the signature of Raheem Sterling.  The England international joined Manchester City from Liverpool in the summer of 2015. Since his arrival in Manchester, he has clocked up 3...

Rio Ferdinand tells Newcastle United to target three English players in January

Rio Ferdinand has told Newcastle United that they should sign young English players in January rather than targeting top players from abroad.  The famous television pundit believes that the Magpies should try to sign the likes of Jesse Lingard, Raheem Sterling and Declan Rice in the next transfer window.  The Tyneside club saw a £300 million takeover by a Saudi-led consortium last week, which means they now have the wealthiest owners in the Premier League.  They are expected to make some big signings in January, after having a largely uneventful summer transfer window.  The new owners want the club to challenge for trophies and they are expected to hire a new manager in the coming weeks, with Steve Bruce likely to be dismissed soon.  According to Ferdinand, Newcast...

Shock report links Tottenham with move to sign £300k-a-week Premier League star

Tottenham Hotspur are eying a deal to sign Manchester City ace Raheem Sterling, according to a report from The Sun. Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo will be keen to bolster his attacking ranks this summer, especially with Harry Kane facing an uncertain future in north London. And what an incredible signing Sterling would be for Tottenham. The City star has two years remaining on his current £300k-a-week deal at the Etihad Stadium. Tottenham eyeing blockbuster Raheem Sterling deal The Sun reckon that Spurs could swoop for the 26-year-old this summer. The pacy winger is still yet to sign a new deal with Man City. Sterling would certainly add some much needed pace and directness to Spurs’ attack. The former Liverpool and Queens Park Rangers ace has bagged an incredibly impressive 114 goals...

Gary Lineker urges Three Lions to ‘treasure’ Euro 2020 final

Gary Lineker has urged the England players to “treasure and enjoy” Sunday’s Euro 2020 final against Italy – but believes it is just the beginning and success will soon come even if they are beaten at Wembley. Gareth Southgate’s side are preparing for their first major tournament final in 55 years, something not even Lineker achieved during his time as a Three Lions player. The former Tottenham, Everton and Barcelona forward also praised the players for the showing a “shining social conscience” off the field which represents the “very best” of England. In an open letter to the England team in the Players’ Tribune, Lineker said: “I wish I was playing with you. This is the sort of occasion you dream about as a player. And honestly, it’s much less nerve-racking out on the pitch than in the sta...

Luke Shaw hits back at Jose Mourinho in Rome as England roll on

At Jose Mourinho’s new home, the Stadio Olimpico, Luke Shaw, chose the perfect setting for his latest riposte to his former boss with two assists in England’s 4-0 thrashing of Ukraine to reach the Euro 2020 semi-finals. Shaw suffered at the hands of Mourinho for three seasons at Manchester United, a string of public criticism not a patch on what was said behind closed doors, the 25-year-old admitted this week. Mourinho’s arrival at Old Trafford came hot on the heels of a horrible double leg fracture Shaw suffered in September 2015. The former Southampton defender revealed in 2018 there had even been fears his right leg would have to be amputated because of blood clots that required emergency surgery. His career never got back on track during Mourinho’s tempestuous time at United, where he ...
