Before to his transfer, Raheem Sterling asked about Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel
According to rumors, Manchester City star Raheem Sterling is interested in joining Chelsea this summer and has already inquired about Thomas Tuchel’s management style.
On Sunday, speculations surfaced that the west London club was close to completing a deal for the England international, and that he may even be acquired for a bargain £35 million.
Sterling’s contract at the Etihad expires in a year, and he faces stiff competition from newcomers Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez for a spot in the City lineup.
The Athletic reports that Sterling has already been chatting to people about what life is like at Chelsea, indicating that the potential transfer is well along.
He’s been particularly keen to gain a sense of Tuchel’s management style, and will have spoken to his possible Chelsea teammates during England’s recent internationals, where Reece James and Mason Mount were both in the squad.
Sterling looks to be pleased with the comments he received, with the size of the money remaining the primary stumbling block to a deal.
