Raheem Sterling is about to become a new Chelsea player. The English striker would have made an agreement with the London club, thus leaving Manchester City. It would be the second consecutive departure from Manchester for London, following the transfer of Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal.
Sterling, due with Man City on June 30, 2023, is on top of Thomas Tuchel's goals after Romelu Lukaku's departure. Pep Guardiola said: "I don't hold back unhappy players." Sterling would transfer to Chelsea in exchange for 45 million pounds.
Raheem has been playing for Manchester City since 2015. With City he won 4 Premier League, 1 FA Cup, 5 English League Cups and 2 English Super Cups. In Manchester he scored 131 goals and 95 assists in 339 games. In fact, from 2012 to 2015, he also wore the Liverpool shirt, with 23 goals and 25 assists in 129 games.
Sterling was born in Kingston, Jamaica, where he spent the first few years of his life. At the age of 5, he emigrated with his mother to London in England, where he attended Copland High School. He never met his father, who died in a shooting in Kingston.
Considered a symbol of the fight against racism, in the course of his sporting career he has been the victim of various racist abuses, from fans and the press. He denounced these episodes publicly and called for a cultural revolution in the world of sport.
In 2016 he made an appearance in the film Grimsby - Beware of That Other, wearing the England shirt. Right winger, he can play on the other wing if necessary, as a playmaker or second striker. An extremely fast player, he likes to start from the left and then concentrate to try the shot at the net or serve an assist.
He excels at dribbling, feints and the last pass. Ambidextrous, classy footballer, he is one of the fastest players in the world, with a top speed of 35.02 km / h. At Manchester City he too confirmed himself as an excellent finalizer (especially with the arrival of Pep Guardiola) given by the goals made in recent seasons, proving to be truly poisonous in depth thanks to his qualities as a sprinter.
