Raheem Sterling, an England footballer, has signed a five-year contract with Chelsea after leaving Manchester City.
Sterling has been a key performer for City over the last seven seasons, scoring in double figures in each of those campaigns and winning nine major awards, including four Premier League titles.
The 27-year-old is one of only eight players to have scored 80 or more Premier League goals, averaging 22 in all competitions over the last five seasons, while also averaging 10 assists per term.
Sterling said of his return to London to play for the Blues, ‘First and foremost, it’s a pleasure to be here.’
‘I’ve obviously achieved a lot in my career so far, but there is still so much more to achieve and I’m really looking forward to doing that in a Chelsea shirt, under Thomas’s management.
‘London is my home and where it all started for me, and it’s amazing I now have the opportunity to play in front of friends and family week in, week out at Stamford Bridge. I’m really looking forward to meeting the fans there soon.
‘I do want to take the opportunity to thank Todd, Behdad, the ownership group, Thomas, and all involved in the process of getting me here.
‘I can’t wait to get going now and continue to do my talking on the pitch.’
‘Raheem Sterling is a serial winner, and his signing is an important step in strengthening our squad,’ said Todd Boehly, chairman and co-controlling owner of Chelsea. We are delighted to welcome Raheem back to Chelsea and look forward to seeing his world-class talent on display at Stamford Bridge.’Click here to give us five stars rating!
