Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling is set to make the switch to Chelsea as he has agreed personal terms with the club.

The 27-year-old will be leaving the Premier League champions this summer despite having one year left on his contract.

Sterling joined City from Liverpool in a £49m deal in 2015.

He scored 131 goals in 339 games for the Etihad club. Under Pep Guardiola, Sterling scored 120 goals for Manchester City.

Should the deal be completed, Sterling will become Chelsea’s first major signing since they were taken over by a consortium led by Todd Boehly.

Thomas Tuchel’s side beat off competition from Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich to land the England forward.
