Raheem Sterling has announced his exit from Manchester City ahead of a £47.5m move to Chelsea.
According to a report by Skysports monitored by Truthlive.net, Sterling has agreed personal terms on a five-year contract with the option of a further 12 months and he had a medical with Chelsea on Sunday.
In a statement announcing his City exit, Sterling said: “Seven seasons. Eleven major trophies. A lifetime of memories.
“To the coaching staff who have played a massive role in my development over the years. To my teammates who have become more than just those I share a pitch with. To the backroom staff. To the office staff. To the fans who have tirelessly supported the team. And to everyone involved with Manchester City, my respect for you couldn’t be greater.
“What a ride it’s been. I am thankful for the ups and downs, as it’s the downs that have, at times, tested my strength and resolve, and enabled me to stand here in front of you as the best possible version of myself.
“I arrived in Manchester a 20-year-old, today I leave as a man. Thank you for your endless support. It’s been an honour to wear the shirt of Manchester City.”
